End of life services

At Animal Humane Society, we’re here to support you through all the stages of your animal’s life, even the tough ones. End of life care for your pet brings about both difficult and emotional decisions. There are many questions, but what is the best answer for you and your family?

We provide a variety of services to help you through this process. Our end of life services are available to the public and are done with care and compassion. After your animal has passed, we provide two different places for peace and reflection and a support group where you can discuss the grief you may experience.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have during this time in your pet’s life.

End of life admission services

Animal Humane Society provides a compassionate and caring post-admission euthanasia service for pet owners with limited incomes who can't afford the same service at a private-practice veterinarian. When the time is right, please contact our Animal Admissions Center at (763) 412-4969 to discuss your needs.

We provide this service for a variety of different animals. If you do not see your animal listed in the chart below, please call for information. This service does not include veterinary consultation. We also are unable to accommodate requests for visitation during the procedure.

Private cremation

We provide private cremation service for families who wish to keep the remains of their pet. Your pet will receive an individual cremation with its remains carefully packaged and returned to you in a standard container along with a certificate of cremation.  The remains of your pet will be available for you to pick up seven to 10 business days after your pet is brought to our facilties. Urns are available for purchase and range in price from $50 to $150.

Communal cremation

Communal cremation for owners who do not wish to keep the remains of their pet.

Fees for all services are due at the time your pet is brought to the Animal Humane Society. If you have questions or need additional information, please call our Animal Admission right at 763-412-4969 or contact us online.
