Peaceful Endings only uses the services of Hinsdale Animal Crematory and Cemetery. If you’d like to use another crematory, Peaceful Endings can still provide euthanasia services – you would just need to set up arrangements on your own.
Established in 1926, Hinsdale Animal Cemetery is the final resting place for thousands of beloved pets. The beauty of the grounds testifies to the love these pet owners have for their “furry kids”, with decorations placed for the different seasons, and many visitors to the grave sites.
As pet owners ourselves, we understand the special bond that exists between humans and our companion animals. We know firsthand how difficult it is to lose a special pet, and know how overwhelming it can be to make decisions at the time of loss. With that in mind, we have created our web site to help explain the services that we offer.
Visitors and inquiries are always welcome. We encourage your participation in our burial or cremation services. The following services are offered:
- Private Burial – Single or multiple plots are available, as well as a selection of wooden boxes or pet caskets.
- Private Cremation – Your animal is placed in the crematory alone. Only and all of your pet’s cremated remains are returned to you. The cremains can be saved in an urn, buried, or scattered. If you wish to attend your pet’s cremation, appointment times are available at no additional charge.
- Memorial Cremation – With this type of cremation, several pets are cremated together. The resulting cremated remains are then scattered on the cemetery grounds. Although we would not be able to point out their pet’s exact scattering area, pet owners choosing Memorial Cremation are welcome to come and visit the cemetery if they wish. A memorial plaque may be purchased for placement on one of our four scattering memorials in the cemetery.
- Memorialization – We offer many items for sale including cremation jewelry and garden memorials for home.We offer a wide variety of caskets and cremation urns. If you choose to bury your pet in our cemetery, we have summer and winter grave decorations available, along with beautiful granite monuments and headstones.
