Frequently Asked Questions
Like most people, you probably have lots of questions. Angel View Pet Cemetery and Crematory wants you to know the answers to some of the most common questions.
How long has Angel View been in the pet cemetery and crematory business?
William Morgan started Angel View Pet Cemetery and Crematory over 30 years ago. It was created and remains in a beautiful undeveloped rural setting. Angel View has become the country's premier pet cemetery and crematory.
What if my pet dies at home after hours or on Sunday?
Call our emergency toll-free telephone number after business hours. Our professional answering service ensures that you will speak to a person in your time of need and that a member of our staff will contact you as soon as possible. You can be sure that we care very much about treating both your pet and you with dignity.
What is the difference between individual cremation and group cremation?
An individual or private cremation is when your pet is placed into the crematory individually. The cremains are then placed in an urn and a certificate of cremation is enclosed and returned to you. During a group cremation, several pets share the crematory. Their cremains are not separated and thus are not returned. They will be buried in our beautiful cemetery.
Is my pet really cremated individually?
Yes. When the veterinary hospital or clinic places a private cremation tag on your pet or equine, he or she will be individually cremated. You will receive back the cremains of only your pet. If you choose to bring your pet here yourself, Angel View will affix the same private cremation tag.
How do I know I'm getting the right ashes back?
The hospital or veterinary clinic will place a private cremation tag on your pet or equine indicating that your pet is to be cremated individually. This tag contains your pet's information as well as the hospital's and stays with your pet through the cremation process. If you choose to bring your pet here yourself, Angel View will affix the same private cremation tag.
How much does cremation cost?
Prices are based on the weight of your pet.
Will our horse be cremated intact?
Good question! Yes, we cremate all animals intact, including horses. As always, our open door policy allows you to view your private equine cremation.
What is a private burial?
A private burial includes an individual plot, a casket, a marker, and the first two years of plot maintenance. After two years, there is a $15 annual maintenance fee, or you may pay a one-time perpetual care fee of $250. You may be present for the burial and you would be able to say goodbye to your pet or equine in our private viewing room.
Do you humanely euthanize pets?
No. Euthanasia must be done by a veterinarian. Some animal control officers also perform this service.
Do you work with my veterinarian?
Yes, we would be happy to work with any veterinarian.
How will my pet or horse get to Angel View?
An important service that Angel View Pet Cemetery provides after the loss of your beloved pet is transportation from the veterinarian's office or your home. Arrangements can easily be made by calling our office.
Can I bring my pet to Angel View myself?
Should you wish to bring your pet directly to Angel View, as many people do, we are here to assist you. Our hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
