Animals are wonderfully agreeable friends. They ask so little of us, and give so much love in return. When it comes time for you to let go of your animal companion, making the decisions on how to care for their physical remains can be heart-wrenching.
As caring members of the community, the staff at Faithful Friends provides its services with great compassion. We feel that pets are important members of our families and therefore, we treat each and every pet as if it is one of our own. We offer families a number of different cremation options, pet urns, memorials and keepsake products to help families express their feelings and pay tribute to their companions.
Faithful Friends offers Decatur’s only pet cemetery, Isle Of Assisi Pet Cemetery. For more information on any of these services please contact our office at 217-429-5439 or visit http://www.faithfulfriendspetservices.com.
A private cremation means your pet is placed in the cremation chamber alone. Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremated remains are removed from the chamber, and returned to you, in an urn of your choice.
In a partitioned cremation, your pet is cremated along with others but each companion is separated by a partition. Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremated remains are removed from the chamber, and can be returned to you, in an urn of your choice.
In a communal cremation, your pet is cremated along with a number of other pets, and the cremated remains are not separated. No cremated remains are returned to you. It is common practice for these cremated remains to be scattered on private land by one of our staff members.
