St Francis Animal & Bird Hospital can provide cremation services for your pet. You may choose a communal cremation or an individual cremation for your pet. A communal cremation means the ashes will not be returned to families. A private or separate cremation means that your individual pet's ashes will be returned to you.

We perform a complimentary clay paw print for all pets as a keepsake if you desire.

Our cremation services are performed at Veterinary Hospitals Association (VHA) in South St Paul. Pets are picked up at St Francis and their remains are returned to us within two weeks.

We also work with Pets Remembered Cremation Services if desired. We can arrange transportation of your pet’s body to Pets Remembered, or if preferred, you may take your pet directly to their facility or request a pick up at your own home. If you are interested in these services, you may contact Pets Remembered directly at 651-633-4564 or www.petsrememberedcremation.com or we can help you make the arrangements


For standard individual cremation, your pet’s ashes are returned to you in a box. Many individuals choose to bury or scatter their pet’s ashes in a special location, while others choose a special urn on their own to keep the ashes safe. Through our cremation service, you may instead choose to have your pet’s ashes returned to you in an urn.
