PALS - Pet Loss Cremation Services


PALS - Pet Loss Cremation Services - ResourcesThe staff at PALS knows your pet is cherished and missed and we’ll do everything we can to ease your pain. We are deeply sensitive to your loss and offer you a quiet place to grieve in our home.

We can help you honor the life of your faithful companion and help you preserve the precious memories you have. Your beloved pet will be handled with the utmost care and respect. You and your pet will be treated with kindness from the first call to the safe return of your pet’s ashes.

We offer your choice of either individual or communal cremation of pets up to 250 pounds. Please call us for prices as they depend on the size of the pet and the type of cremation you desire. We have state-of-the-art equipment and encourage families to tour our facilities.


What is a private cremation vs. a communal cremation?

If you choose a private cremation, your pet is cremated individually and the ashes are returned to you. If you choose a communal cremation, your pet is cremated with other pets and the ashes are respectfully spread in a quiet country setting.

What should I do when my pet dies?

If your pet passes at a veterinary clinic:

Ask the clinic staff to call PALS. In most cases, we go to the vet clinic to receive your pet into our care. However, if you would rather bring your pet to us, you may do so.

If your pet passes at home:

Most families bring their pet to us at our convenient Sedalia location. If that is not possible, we can make arrangements to come to your home, but an additional fee will apply depending on your location. We are available 24/7, but most commonly drop-offs or pick-ups are done during regular business hours. Most families are comfortable with keeping their pet in their care until the next business day. Our usual business hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and by appointment on weekends. However, in emergency situations, we are always available to serve you.

Is pet cremation only for cats and dogs?

While cats and dogs are the most common that are cremated, other animals like birds, rabbits, hamsters, ferrets and goats can be cremated, too, as long as they are under 250 pounds. 

What can I do with my pet’s ashes?

Many people select special, handcrafted urns for their pet’s ashes. There are a large variety of urn styles to choose from. The benefit of using cremation urns for ashes is that you can keep the memory of your pet with you over the years, even if you move homes.

I live a considerable distance from your location. Would it be possible to mail my completed urn and memorial item to me?

Yes, we frequently use package delivery services to facilitate returning pet ashes.
