About Humane Euthanasia

Euthanasia is a humane way of ending the life of an animal who is suffering from chronic illness, irreparable injury or old age. Euthanasia is not painful to pets but is simply a sensation of falling into a deep, restful sleep. We offer a peaceful, private environment where our caring and certified euthanasia staff will help you, your pet and your family through the process. This service takes place at our Intake Department located on the lower level of our shelter. For your convivence, please park in the covered parking garage.

Services Offered

  • Euthanasia
  • Cremation
  • DOA Disposal

We offer Humane Euthanasia for $95.00* per animal. If you would prefer to take your pet home to bury instead of cremating, let us know and our staff will kindly wrap them for the ride home with you.

You may choose to do a Private Cremation if you would like to have your animal’s cremated remains. Cremation prices are:


  • $140.00 for pets under 40lbs
  • $170.00 for pets 41lbs to 100lbs
  • $210.00 for pets over 100lbs


All private cremations include a lovely wooden box urn. We also offer a clay paw print for an additional $30.00.
We are here every day to assist you with this procedure and  no appointment is necessary. Simply arrive between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm at our Intake Department, located in the lower-level of our shelter and we will take care of you.  We are here for you when you need us.
