Most pet cremation provided by Vets is performed using Semi-Private cremation, and advertised as "only your pet's ashes", verify that your vet or provider is using a "single pet" private cremation.

Austin Pet Memorial Center is one of those businesses that you never want to have to use. But when the time inevitably comes, you'll be glad you went with them.

Our 14 year old cat, Itsy-Bitsy passed away this past Tuesday evening. I Googled & called the vet. The vet was $185, but they contract out, so it would have been 4-5 business days (said the receptionist). Since today (Friday) is the 4th of July, it probably would have been a full week before he was home again. Your mileage may vary, but having him sit in a freezer just didn't feel right for us. So we decided to go with APMC, which offered 24-48 hours return time (on their website) for $189.
Chuck was very kind from the start. He came to our home within an hour of me calling to pick up our little guy. He was very respectful, and thoroughly explained the process to my husband & me. Pickup was at about 10 AM on Wednesday morning, and he called at 5:30 PM the same day to let us know that Itsy was ready to come home. We couldn't make it out to Buda that day, but Chuck assured us that the next day wouldn't be a problem.
So we drove out yesterday (Thursday). The place isn't hard to get to or find - they're right on the I-35 southbound access road. When we picked up, the office guy (didn't get his name) was also very kind. He made sure that we had everything, and showed us how they label each pet's items with a sticker that has their name & a QR code to ensure that you are definitely getting the correct pet & keepsakes. The keepsake paw print is lovely. They also gave us a clipping of his fur, a heart-shaped flower seed remembrance card, a reusable tote bag, and a sympathy card & grief info. The paw print & other keepsakes were not offered by the vet's cremation service, by the way, so the extra $4 was more than worth it to us. The box that Itsy's ashes are in is a lovely little wooden box, secured on the bottom with a screw.

I wish I could say that we won't have to use this service again, but with 4 more cats & a dog, we will eventually. When that sad time comes, we will absolutely call Austin Pet Memorial Center again. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for making this difficult thing so much easier.
