End of Life Services
Our pets are a valued part of our family, and when our journey with them comes to an end, the APF knows how important it is to trust the place you turn to for end of life pet services. We are here to offer affordable, quality services to our community members. Following are the current services we provide:
The APF recognizes how difficult it can be to decide that a beloved pet is in need of humane euthanasia. If you are considering using our affordable end-of-life services, please call us at (518) 374-3944 ext. 101. One of our representatives will answer any questions you have about our process to ensure you and your pet receive the appropriate care and services. The chart below outlines the cost of euthanasia by a pet’s weight.
Please keep in mind that due to limited staffing, APF’s humane euthanasia service is available by appointment only. Please note that we are not able to allow pet owners to stay during the procedure.
If your pet is in need of emergency attention, please take them to your local Emergency Animal Hospital.
Your pet’s terminal illness, age, prognosis, or general well being should be discussed with your veterinarian prior to making an appointment.

The APF offers affordable private and group cremation services, with several options for packages. Cremation services at the APF are provided by Adirondack Pet Care, a locally-operated and trusted company.
Private Cremation: This option provides you with the opportunity to keep your beloved pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When you choose this option, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet. This option includes a wooden walnut urn at no additional cost. A Wooden Walnut Photo Urn is available for an additional $20
Group Cremation: With group cremation, your pet is gently placed into the crematory together with other pets. Because no cremated remains are returned to you when you choose a group cremation, you may wish to consider one of our personalized memorial paw prints as a timeless remembrance.
Pet Memorial Package: For Private Cremation clients, this package is available for an additional $60. The Pet Memorial Package includes: a personalized votive memorial candle, pawprint in clay, snippet of pet’s fur, cremation certificate, sympathy card, framed copy of “Rainbow Bridge” in decorative bag.

We know how hard it is to lose a pet, which is why the Animal Protective Foundation hosts a free Pet Bereavement Support Group every third Wednesday of the month at 6PM.
The group is led by Estelle Giles-Monroe, MSW, LCSWR
This group is made possible by the generosity of Dr. Roger Blankfein, owner of In The Comfort of Home. Dr. Blankfein provides an in-home pet euthanasia service to make your most difficult situation as peaceful and relaxed as possible – for both you and your pet.
For more information, email email@example.com or call the APF at (518) 374-3944, ext. 150
This group is free and open to the public
