Coping with the loss of a pet is difficult, and we understand how deeply it can affect you and your family. Caring for your departed animal can be a healing and cathartic act, and we can help you to give your beloved pet the dignified farewell and attention that he or she deserves.
Here at Blackburn & Ward Funeral Home, we offer the services of Borden Pet Crematory & Memorial Center. Pet services we can offer include three different types of cremation options listed below as well as pet caskets for burial, monuments and markers, pet cremation jewelry, paw prints, and memorial portraits. For questions and pricing please call us at (859) 873-4991.
Individual or private cremation is a process where only one pet is present in the cremation chamber. It is similar to the process used for human cremations. After cremation, we remove your pet's cremated remains from the chamber and return them to you in a nice carved wooden urn.
Partitioned cremation means that your pet shares space in the cremation chamber with other pets. Because each pet is placed in a designated area and clearly identified with a stainless steel ID tag, we're able to ensure that you'll receive the cremated remains of only your pet, returned to you in a nice carved wooden urn.
Communal cremation is for pet owners who do not wish for their pet's cremated remains to be returned to them but would still like to care for their pet's remains in a dignified and loving way. In a communal cremation, multiple pets are cremated remains are spread in a sunflower garden on private land by the pet crematory owner.
