CREMATION SERVICES THROUGH BALTIMORE HUMANE SOCIETY
Cremation care is always local and private. Proceeds support the life-saving work of our animal shelter.
Please see our hours of operation for contact information. Please give us a call before you arrive.
Personalized and unique to every family’s needs, our cremation packages are designed to provide you with choices that you can feel comfortable with. We know how important your final moments are with your pet. If you need help or have questions, we are always here.
The return of your pet’s ashes may include an optional memorial service and a PAWbits listing at no cost.
PACKAGES & PRICING
Pre-planning is available with a small deposit to allow weekly or monthly payments.
Payment arrangements can be set up for pre-need only. We partner with Afterpay for immediate need.
Afterpay is a payment service that allows you to make four equal installments on your pet-loss services.
Please let us know if you would like to use Afterpay for your cremation and memorial services.
For more information about pre-planning, see our Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park FAQs.

Just as there is no wrong or right way to grieve, there is no wrong or right way to say “goodbye” to our loved ones. Not all families require their pets’ ashes be returned to them.
When this is the case, communal or “shared” or cremation is an option. As the name suggests, in a communal cremation, a group of pets are cremated together and their ashes are inseparable and are not returned to their families. Communally cremated pets’ ashes will be buried in our private pet cemetery.
Pets under 25 pounds, $40
Pets between 25 and 100 pounds, $65
Pets more than 100 pounds, please call for pricing.
Ink paw or nose prints: $15. Your pet’s nose or paw print inked onto keepsake cotton paper.
Fur clipping: $10. A small clipping of your pet’s fur returned in a small decorative glass jar.
Clay pawprint or nose print impression: $45. Your pet’s nose or paw print impressed into clay and then baked into a durable permanent keepsake.
Cremation and Interment
Cremation and Interment package: Includes the Individual Cremation services above and Private Permanent Interment (burial of pet’s urn and ashes) and Funeral Services in our serene, private Memorial Park with a personalized 6 X 6” custom engraved memorial stone for the pet’s resting place.
Many families ask if their own cremated remains can be interred with their pets in our cemetery. Absolutely! Please call or email our director to make arrangements.
Interment of existing cremated remains
Some families keep their pet’s ashes for years until they are “ready” to release them, or are where they plan to permanently reside. As we get older, we worry about what will happen to our pets’ ashes and urns when we ourselves are no longer around to care for them. We welcome your pet’s existing ashes — even those of multiple pets.
We have dedicated sections, such as our beautiful bird sanctuary, specifically set-aside for existing cremated remains.
Our package includes our 6″ X 6″ or 6″ X 12″ custom-engraved memorial stone.
Interment of existing cremated remains with custom memorial stone, $250
