Above & Beyond Cremation

Email us at:

The special bond between humans and animals can only be described as unconditional love. We understand the loss of a pet is a very distressing time for you and your family. We also realize that it is important to you that your beloved friend is handled with care and compassion after leaving this world.

Above & Beyond Cremations is unique because we offer partitioned cremation services, meaning your pet is cremated individually. Through our process, you can be assured that your pet is handled with dignity and the respect he or she deserves. While we specialize in partitioned individual cremation, we also provide a convenient support service for the communal cremation of deceased pets whose owners do not wish to keep the remains. Cremated remains are spread in our memorial garden located at our facility. We created our memorial garden dedicated to our loved ones who have passed. As the spirit continues on, the ashes become part of our surrounding environment...forever enriching our lives as memories and emotions.

Above & Beyond Cremations has been operating with integrity since 1999. Our pet cremation facility is located in the High Desert area of Southern California and is open for your visit and inspection by appointment upon your request. We provide pick-up and delivery weekly with remains returned in seven days. We provide a Certificate of Authenticity, paw print, poem and angel pin with each pet and return cremations in a complimentary aromatic cedar box at no additional charge.

Let us provide a memory that will last forever. You may also chose from several styles of urns with the option of customization in which to store your pet. For items with engraving, you can add up to four lines, 25 characters per line. We have several options of urn styles:

  • Photo Engraved Wooden Urns;
  • Ceramic Photo Sublimation Urns;
  • Paws Odyssey Collection in pewter, copper, and bronze; no engraving
  • Photo Tall displays in walnut, oak and cherry; free engraving
  • Memorial Garden Rocks; free engraving
  • PAWS Dream Tower in pewter; free engraving
  • Marble and Wooden Plaques

With great respect…
