End of Life Services available at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter

🐾 Caring compassionate handling of deceased companions.

🐾 Cremation of beloved pets performed with integrity, dignity and respect.

🐾 Private cremation allows for the guardian to have their pet’s remains returned to them in a temporary urn.

🐾 Communal cremation is where multiple pets are cremated together and the cremated remains are scattered on shelter grounds.

🐾 Personalized clay paw prints allow you to hold your pet’s unique paw imprint forever.


Solidified Remains:

We have partnered with Parting Stone, a local company, that can take your pet’s cremated remains and turn them into Solidified Remains. The purification process transforms standard cremated remains into beautiful stones that can be kept or scattered. For more information about Solidified Remains, click here. If you have animal cremated remains that you are interested in having turned into Solidified Remains you can work directly with Parting Stone here.

Honor a Life, Save a Life:

In honor of the pets we love, lost, and those we’ve yet to meet, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter has a beautiful Pet Memorial Labyrinth, located on the shelter grounds. With a $100 gift, we will create a personalized heart-shaped tag with your pet’s name on it that will be displayed along the labyrinth wall. The tag will read: Supporting SFAS in memory of (your pet’s name).

If you would like to purchase a personalized tag in honor of a companion please click here. Your gift will support the mission of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter to support animals, save lives and spread compassion.
