Mankato Pet Cremation was first conceived in the summer of 2018. Like many other pet owners, we recognized there were no local options for pet cremation. In no time, the idea took on a life-force all it’s own. Decorah Township, the city of Mankato, and Blue Earth Environmental Services, veterinary clinics, along with private pet owners all stood in support of creating a local resource for pet aftercare services. In February 2019 we opened our doors.
Our main purpose is to provide compassionate cremation services for family pets. We also service veterinary clinic and humane societies. Our service includes: pick-up and delivery, an accurate and certain tracking system for each pet, access to a large variety of urns and scatter boxes, send-off/closure events, and in-home euthanasia (coming soon). We also honor the work of certified service animals by showcasing their obituaries on our Facebook page and offer a private cremation for $99. Though controversial, we offer both private (one pet at a time) and group cremations (two pets at a time), this gives people pricing options. Please note, pets weighing over 130 lbs. will always have a private cremation, and pets under 5 lbs. (for $99 rate) are always cremated with a group unless you prefer otherwise. We are happy to make other arrangements upon request.
We are always interested in collaborating and supporting individual, other pet related businesses and organizations. If there is someway we can support you or others, please let us know.
