Honoring our pet’s passing is one of the most emotional experiences we as pet owners face. Often in the times leading up to our pets’ deaths, we experience a range of emotions as we slowly accept that their time with us may soon come to an end. Other times, their passing is a sudden and unexpected event, which can cause immense grief and distress.

Companion Memorial knows that no matter how your pet passes, it’s always a challenging experience, and each pet owner processes the loss differently. We’re proud to provide our Catskills, NY, neighbors with compassionate cremation and memorial services for their small animals, giving them the chance to say goodbye in a dignified and honorable way. Here’s how we can help.

Why animal cremation?

It’s never easy to say goodbye to our companion animals. And for many pet owners, burial is not an option. Whether they face burial restrictions on their property, do not wish to deal with the emotional toll of burial, or they’re concerned about the environmental impact of burying their pet, many people choose to explore other viable options.

Companion Memorial Crematorium's animal cremation services give pet owners a compassionate, affordable, and more environmentally sustainable way to honor their pet’s passing. We’re committed to providing a dignified, honorable way to honor your pet’s life, whether your pet has been with you for just a short while or you’ve shared much of your life together.

We know that it’s difficult to say goodbye, and each member of our staff is here to answer any questions you may have regarding the process, as well as provide compassion during this challenging time. We guarantee that your pet will receive the same levels of dignity and respect as you’d expect each of your family members to receive.


Many of us have watched our pets’ health decline, knowing that they are inching closer to passing each day. This is an incredibly emotional time for both pet owners and their companions. The last thing we want to worry about is what comes next. But planning ahead can make their passing easier on you and your loved ones.

Memorial Crematorium provides our Catskills neighbors with pre-planning services so you can gently prepare for your pet’s passing. When you reach out to us, we can provide you with the information you need to make a confident decision regarding which of our services and memorial offerings is right for you and your companion animal. And remember: there’s no rush in deciding.

We want you to have the resources you need to consider the most appropriate option, regardless of when you get back to us. Know that we’re available to speak on any follow-up conversations to clarify or expand on any of our services.

Trust Companion Memorial with your pet’s memorial

Even the smallest pets among us fill us with oversized joy. It’s their presence and personality that makes their passing so difficult; no two companion animals are the same, and their memorial service should honor their life as much as their unique personalities.

Companion Memorial knows that when you contact us, you need clarity and support. Our small animal cremation services give our Catskill neighbors a dignified option for their pet’s passing, helping them process the experience, and giving them the services and knowledgeable experience they need during this difficult time.
