    Hinsdale Animal Cemetery And Crematory
    Transparent, responsive, accommodating, and kind. Provided prompt and excellent service without surprises at a difficult time.

    When I returned to pick up Punkin's ashes, I was very pleased with the sympathy and care that I was shown for my loss and the care with which Punkin's cremains were placed in the urn. I purchased a glass touch stone with Punkin's paw print on it and it came out beautifully. I have other pets and should the news arise, I will most definitely use Family's Pet Cremation again. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants gentle care to be used with their deceased pet.

    They are for humans and pets. It's not just a pet Cemetery. They were excellent. I went to them. It was like 3 days later or so to come pick up the ashes. They were very sympathetic. The service was good. I was very impressed with the whole service. I thought they were great.

    It was really, kind of a rough day.  Other than that she was so sick and she was dying, we ended up bringing her home, but they couldn't do anything, I mean because of her age and she died at home.  We tried to do something for, it was probably $1500.  I don't remember how much it cost to have her cremated.  We didn't use it, but the provided a room to spend time with the body if you wanted to.  They do a footprint, it's an extra charge, but they do a footprint and you get the ashes back when they're done. They are there 24 hours.

    Chicago Cat Clinic
    My son used that place for several years and then when we moved up here we used it for our cat. They’re really good. They were wonderful. For annual checkup, you have to take your animals in for rabies every year, just a checkup. This all happened in September of 2015. September 30th was the last time we took him. If we had a cat, we would use them again.

    I had to have my 16 year old poodle, Inky, euthanized on a Sunday morning.  My husband had been at work and unable to say his final goodbye, so I brought Inky back home and researched pet cremetories. I found great reviews for crematories quite far from me.  Then I happened to find a review on FPC in Arlington Heights, so I called there late Sunday afternoon and left a message. No one called back that day or early on Monday, so I thought I'd have to use one of the other places.  I decided to call FPC one more time in case the message hadn't gotten through, and I'm really glad I did. I talked with Jason Belyew, the owner.  He was very apolgetic about the missed call.  He was vey kind and sympathetic and told me I could bring Inky in that day at 2:00 for a private cremation. He gave very good directions and I had no trouble finding it. It is located in one of those industrial office parks.  Walking in was a surprise!  It was a funeral parlor for pets!  You could even hold a wake there. It was lovely. very pretty and comfortable and peaceful. Jason was very comforting and kind.  I spent time with Inky saying my final goodbye.  Then Jason came with a clay disc and made an impression of one of Inky's paws.  When I was ready, he asked me if I wanted to see the crematory and I said yes.  He took me back to where it was and very gently took Inky out of the box and placed him in the crematory.  He took me back to the other room and put on the TV for me and my friend who had come with me.  When the cremation was finished, about 70 minutes later, he brought me Inky's cremains, which were in a little zip lock bag.  He placed them in a nice cherry wood box and put the box into a velveteen bag with the words, " Until we meet again over the rainbow bridge" embroidered on it.  He also brought me Inky's paw imprint in a little white gift box. He placed that in another little velveteen drawstring bag.  I felt really good about my final send-off to my beloved pet, Inky.  I was sad, yet comforted in my sorrow.  I would highly recommend Family's Pet Cremation.

    It was very sad but it all worked out fine. It was all good. We've been going there for 18 years. They are very nice and knowledgeable. They helped us through everything we had to go through with our dog. It was the first time we'd had to go through cremation. We also use them for our 4 year old boxer.

    Hinsdale Animal Cemetery And Crematory
    This was the first time we had ever had any of our pets cremated. Previously we buried them in the backyard beneath the big tree when our animals passed away. But this dog was the largest of our animals to have died to date so we felt cremation was a better option. As it was our first experience we didn't know what to expect exactly. We requested a private cremation of just our dog, rather than a group cremation with other animals as well. They were able to get us in same day. There was a small private room where we could say our final goodbyes to our dog. Then it was time for her to be cremated. Through the viewing window in the room they showed us that the oven was empty of any other remains. Once our dog was placed inside, the door was pulled down. We were given a time estimate for how long it would take. The process the remains would go through was thoroughly explained and all questions were answered in a sensitive manner. Throughout the entire process checks were done and procedures were in place to ensure it was our dog's remains that were being handled. Everything was labeled and checked before proceeding to the next step. We were comforted by being able to be there throughout the cremation process so we could see that yes, in fact, we were getting the remains of our dog back, and not just some ashes that could have come from anywhere. Hinsdale Animal Cemetery has been in the community for many years and I was very pleased with their service as I found all staff to be very professional and sensitive. The grounds are also beautiful and well-kept. I believe their business is a source of pride for the owners and they do their best to keep both the grounds and facility, as well as their reputation, up to a high standard.

    We were recommended by a friend to them.  I have taken people there too; they are really nice and kind people.  Their price depends on the weight of the animal; when we cremated our dog it was more than what it was when we cremated our cat.  It is an excellent place to use.  We had used someone else but they were certainly not as thoughtful and they were certainly not as professional.  Kozy Acres Pet Cemetery & Crematory were wonderful and we will certainly use them again.

    Chicagoland Pet Cremation
    Although our 16-year-old cat, Huckleberry, had kidney failure and thyroid issues, she was managing to do reasonably well.  So it came as a complete shock one day to discover that she had suffered what the vet called a stroke--and it seems that strokes in animals are a bit different than in humans.  In Huck's case, it meant that in the blink of an eye, something happened and she was no longer able to support herself on her hind legs.  We saw the vet and, long story short, learned that although they might be able to help her, she would not recover the use of her legs.  And given her other medical conditions, they wouldn't be able to add much time to her life. So we made the wrenching decision to put her to sleep.  Our vet was terrific--he came quickly and visited our home, putting Huck to sleep with no pain and no suffering.  In anticipation of the event, I had contacted Joe at Chicagoland Pet Cremation.  He was thoroughly professional, completely understanding, and very supportive.  We contacted him in the afternoon, the vet came at 7:30 pm, and Joe himself came--long past business hours--at 9:15 pm that night to pick her up.  Considering his home and business is in Bloomingdale and we are in Evanston, that kind of devotion speaks volumes about a business owner.  He let us take us much time as we needed to say goodbye to Huck, offered to explain the process (we were too overwrought), and answered all our questions.  He promised to bring her ashes back quickly--and did.  There was no upselling (the company also offers urns and other items for sale on its website), nothing except complete professionalism at a terrible moment in our lives. We cannot imagine dealing with people in our position day in and day out but Joe did it in a manner that shows that this is not so much a job to him as a calling.  His website explains how he came to be in this business (an industry giant handled his own pet so callously as to inspire him to do this work).   I cannot imagine a harder moment in the life of a pet owner but I am so terribly grateful that we found Joe.  Although I hope not to have to need his services again for many years, I have no hesitation to say we would use him again and recommend him without any reservation whatsoever.
