At Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater, we are sensitive to the needs of the families we serve. To further serve the needs of our community, we provide options when it comes to paying for your beloved pet’s cremation.

Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater offers four payment alternatives, each of which allows you to memorialize your cherished pet in the most comfortable and suitable fashion.


To save you the anguish of making painful decisions immediately following the passing of your much-loved pet, our caring staff offers pre-arranged plans with a pre-payment option. Your first step is to fill out Pet Cremation’s convenient “Pet Record” form. This helps our professional, caring staff members find the best cremation plan to serve your needs.

Many who have chosen this route tell us that they find it easier to make decisions regarding a pet’s final arrangements before the time of loss, before the stress and grief become overwhelming. Once a pet owner has pre-arranged and pre-paid for our services, the price will not go up, no matter how many years go by before the plan is needed. An additional cost for after-hours pick-up may apply.

Payment Plan

Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater understands that today’s economy doesn’t always afford people the luxury of an expendable income. Since the after-life care for pets is our only business, we are especially sensitive to these circumstances. That’s why we offer a payment plan, according to your needs.

We will work with each pet owner, on their timetable, to ensure an adored pet’s remains are returned immediately to them after the final payment is made, usually within 24-to-48 hours. Each person can be assured that we take the best care of your pet’s remains – entirely at our local site – until you both are reunited.

St. Francis Garden

If you do not wish to have your pet’s ashes returned to you, Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater welcomes the opportunity to spread your beloved pet’s ashes among the serene and beautiful surroundings of our own St. Francis Garden. As the patron of pets, St. Francis keeps a careful eye on all of the cherished brood that now calls the garden their final resting place. Be mindful that your pet’s remains will not be returned to you once you have agreed to the garden burial.

Payment upon services rendered

As always, Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater will accept cash or credit cards upon services rendered. This convenience allows you to continue memorializing and remembering your loving pet.
