After saying goodbye to your beloved companion, there are a number of aftercare options to choose from. At Hamilton-Niagara Veterinary Mobile Euthanasia Services, we are here to assist in any way possible. Whether you choose us for in-home euthanasia or your pet passes away naturally, we are here to care for their remains with dignity, compassion, and respect.

Private Cremation

If you would like to have your dog or cat cremated, Hamilton-Niagara Veterinary Mobile Euthanasia Services will facilitate transportation to Gateway Pet Memorial Services. When picking up your pet’s body, we will utilize Dignity Bag to ensure they depart from your home and are carried to our vehicle with dignity. You are welcome to place your pet’s toys or favorite objects in the bag for cremation if you so desire.

  • You will be provided a specific email link with your pet's name, your last name and phone number.
  • This can be used to browse/select optional memorial items and keepsakes available using the "Lasting Memories" online portal for an additional fee.
  • Our Lasting Memories Service will be available for 48 hours following the passing of your pet.
If you feel you need more time for your decision, or have questions, simply contact Gateway's Client Care team.

Private cremation is available for those who would like to have their pet’s ashes returned. Your companion will be the only one in the cremation chamber, and their ashes will be placed in a complimentary urn engraved with your pet’s name and returned to you.

Once the process is complete, your pet's ashes and memorial products will be delivered to your home for an additional fee or you can choose to have them delivered to your regular veterinary clinic.

You will be contacted to inform you that your pet's ashes has been returned and arrangements for home delivery or clinic pick-up can be made at that time.

Communal Cremation

If you choose communal cremation, your companion will be cremated along with other recently deceased pets, and their ashes will be lovingly spread rather than being returned to you.

  • At Gateway, when the cremation process is complete, the communal remains are collected and placed in an unmarked communal burial plot at the Sandy Ridge Pet Cemetery as a final tribute.
  • A small representation from each communal cremation is placed in our ossuary
  • If you choose, you are welcome to visit the ossuary to reflect and remember your pet.
Both communal and private cremation services are available.

At-Home Burial

If you plan to transport your pet to the crematorium yourself or wish to bury them at home, at-home burial is available. Please note, however, that regulations regarding pet burial at home are dependent upon the township or city in which you live. There may be restrictions in place to control the inadvertent exposure risk of the medication used for euthanasia as it relates to wildlife and/or other pets coming into contact with your pet after burial. If you would like to bury your pet at home, we will review local regulations with you to ensure that you are able to do so.
