AFTERCARE

At Faithful Hearts, we handle all of our own aftercare via aquamation with our sister company, Furever Faithful Pet Aquamation.  Aquamation is environmentally responsible, energy efficient, water-based cremation.  During aquamation, over a 20-hour cycle water and alkaline salts are used to transform your pet into the same cremains (except you get back 20% more of your pet!) you receive with traditional flame cremation.  

Alissa and Blake currently handle all of the aftercare process themselves, making us the ONLY veterinary end-of-life company in the upstate that offers care from a single team, from in home palliative & hospice care, to euthanasia if warranted or natural death, to aftercare.  We understand that your pet is a beloved family member (we have witnessed this love in its many forms in so many beautiful ways over the years) and we treat each pet with respect and dignity, as we have done with Faithful Hearts Mobile Veterinary Services in the upstate since early 2020.  We strive to make every step of this heartbreaking time a little less difficult for pet families.

*Individual is when multiple animals are each placed in their own container and a cycle is run, so that every pet's aqua-remains stay completely separated and you are able to get just your pet back.  Private is when your pet is placed in the machine and an entire cycle (20 hours) is run with them alone.  While the difference is symbolic, we think that it is important to be transparent with families about this distinction.  

Private Aquamation (any size)*:

Communal cremains are spread in a

beautiful place! The wind rustling through the trees makes it incredibly peaceful and the ashes help the trees grow. We do everything we can to be a environmentally friendly small business!!

Unfortunately as this is private property you cannot visit. In the future we hope to be able to purchase land to turn into a site for spreading communal remains so that families have a place to visit their loved ones. We are picturing a natural pathway through woods with benches and easily accessible for all!

URNS

We know that as a beloved family member, the urn your pet is placed in following their aftercare is important.  That is why we offer a selection of complimentary beautiful urns for the companions we aquamate, with additional upgrade options available as well.  We also have a variety of paw prints, jewelry, and other keepsake items. 

If you do not like any of the options we provide, there is a huge selection of urns on Amazon and Etsy (where you can even choose to have an artist hand make a custom urn).

***Please note that if your pet is too large to fit in the largest size of any chosen urn, we will package the rest of your pet's remains in a velvet bag in order to return your entire pet to you.***

If you are interested in our urn upgrade choices or other memorial items such as jewelry or keychains, please check out our selection on the Furever Faithful website.
