Our Services

Cremation Services

St. Francis Animal 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 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. 

If you are interested in these services, you may contact Pets Remembered directly at 651-633-4564 or or we can help you make the arrangements

Everything was amazing as always here!

Employees are always very friendly and polite. They were very efficient with the appointment and the social distancing guidelines were well laid out and easy to follow. Definitely recommend this location for Vet services!

The curbside service was so convenient, I don’t think you could’ve made my visit any better!

This is the only veterinarian hospital we’ve ever taken our dog to. They have been caring for him since he was weaned. The staff is professional, responsive, and caring. I highly recommend them.

Our 2 dogs and 2 rabbits all go to St. Francis Animal Hospital.

All of the doctors and nurses there are very knowledgeable and well-educated. They are always helpful, kind, caring, compassionate, and always smiling. The new curb-side appointments are yet another example of how well they work. Thank you all so very, very much!
