Compassionate Euthanasia

Parting ways with a beloved pet is always a heart-wrenching experience. Despite the difficulty of the situation, choosing compassionate euthanasia often stands as the most humane decision for pets in their final stages of life. Whether your pet is enduring severe injuries, battling a terminal illness, or succumbing to the effects of old age, Monroe County Humane Association is here to support you in providing them with the tender, comfortable farewell they deserve. Cremation services are also available at the time of euthanasia. Details are provided below. $50($30)

Private Cremation

Monroe County Humane Association’s private cremation service offers a respectful and intimate way to honor your pet, with your cherished companion being the exclusive pet in the cremation chamber. Included in the price of this service is a Blue Scattering Tube, and we also offer a selection of other urns available for purchase to suit your personal memorial preferences. Please note that the Scattering Tube cannot be personalized.

Pets under 50lbs: $175($125)

Communal Cremation

Communal cremation is a respectful and comforting option for those seeking solace in the memory of their beloved pet. In this process, your pet is tenderly placed in the crematory alongside other pets, fostering a sense of community and shared respect in their final journey. No cremated remains are returned in communal cremation, but you may consider opting for one of our memorial paw prints or fur clippings, serving as a timeless and poignant reminder of the love and moments shared with your cherished companion. 

All Pets: $60($35)

Additional Memorial Products

In addition to our cremation services, we offer a range of additional memorial products available for purchase at the time of cremation service, allowing you to further personalize and enhance your tribute to your beloved pet.
