Pet Cremation Services Near Rochester, NY
A few years ago, there were some very malicious, untrue accusations made about most of the pet cremation services in the Rochester area. Rush Inter Pet, Inc. has been operating for over 40 years and performing pet cremations here in Rush, NY for over 35 years. As experts in the pet cemetery and crematory business, we have always run our business according to New York State law, following our state’s regulations and terminology.
All pets are very carefully labeled from the moment we receive them, and we keep all of the information with the pet until the final processing and packaging of the cremated remains is completed.
Cremation as an Individual
Our crematories at Rush Inter Pet are actually for human size cremations, and the interior measures 8 feet from front to back. Because the inside of the crematory is so large, we can carefully separate pets from each other using more than adequate space and stainless-steel dividers.
Operating the crematory in this way saves energy and helps us keep costs down. We make a diagram showing the placement of each pet within the crematory, including the body tag information provided for each pet.
Separating pet cremations in this manner within the larger crematory units is standard practice in the pet cremation industry. However, we feel that we have always gone a step above and beyond by using the dividers, which have to be replaced every two weeks because they deteriorate in the 1800 degree heat, running from 4-5 hours per cycle.
With private cremation, only one pet is in the large, human size crematory. For over 40 years, we have offered this type of cremation at the request of clients, but it is growing in popularity. This service is more expensive, costing more than “cremation as an individual”.
If a family wants to attend the cremation, they may make an appointment with us to do so.
