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.

Packages and pricing are as follows:

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.
