Aquamation is an alternate form of afterlife care service that is cremation through water. Unlike cremation by fire, aquamation is gentler and more eco-friendly, as aquamation uses only water and alkaline, which is a combination of sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide. This means there are zero direct emissions to the atmosphere, and less energy is used.

The Process:

  • Gentle Pet Crossing either picks up your pet from the veterinarian or your home, or you can drop off your pet to us.
  • We document your pet and give them an ID tag and number that we use to track them throughout the process.
  • We also take a locket of your pet’s hair that you will receive with the urn.
  • After one week, your pet’s urn and locket of hair are returned to you. You can either pick up your keepsakes from our location or at your veterinarian, or we can ship them to you for an additional charge.
