"Where veterinarians bring their own animals for pet cremation services"

If you are seeking a low-cost, big warehouse that processes so many animals that they have to put metal tags on them to keep them straight, this is not it. We are a small boutique crematory, mortuary and cemetery that works one-on-one with individuals during the most sensitive time. We do this because we love God's creatures. We permit (and encourage) you to be part of the process. We can have clergy on-site to help console and pray. Have a cherished toy or item you'd like cremated with your animal? No problem. Cannot be present but would like to experience the whole process from pickup to scattering? Our videographer can film everything so you may have an eternal rememberance right on your computer. We customize each greiving experiece so you can say farewell on your terms.

Since 1939

Established in 1939, one of the first to provide aftercare for pets in the United States. Denver Pet Cemetery has been bringing departed pets safely home with compassion, respect, and integrity. Since the inception, our cemetery has been a peaceful, tranquil setting for pets, including the world famous, War Hero, Sgt. Geronimo, of the 507th Parachute Infantry.

Pets require attention and dedication, but those are small prices to pay for the amount of physical and mental benefits they bring into our lives. Visit the Virtual Cemetery (Pictures)West-Front | Eest-Front

Same-Day Private Cremation Services:

Of the three methods of cremation available:
Private (only one animal in the crematory)
Individual* (multiple animals in the crematory divided by bricks or trays - this is the process used 99% of the time by most caregivers)
    *Denver Pet Cemetery does not perform Individual Cremation
Communal (multiple animals undivided)

Denver Pet Cemetery performs a true "Private" cremation service. Your companion will be the only one in the crematory and you are welcome to watch/worship during the entire process. There is no possibility of commingling of remains - you are guaranteed to receive only your pet's ashes.

We perform every cremation as a "Witnessed Cremation."

Your veterinarian will be happy to have cremation performed for you however almost no veterinarian performs cremation in-house (there are a couple). They will send your animal out for a contracted cremation. You may not get your companion back for days. Do not let this happen to you. We offer Same-Day witnessed cremation for your peace of mind.

Carry something of that special companion around with you forever; cremation ash tattoo ink. Our cremains are super-heated and find-ground; perfect for this unique remembrance.
