Services for Pet Owners and Veterinarians in Maine
Ashes to Ashes Pet Crematory provides pet cremation services for dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles and most other pets, including some farm animals (see below for more information).
The differences between a private and a semi-private (partitioned) service are described on this page.
You are welcome to bring your deceased pet directly to us, or we can pick up at your home, Veterinary facility or other convenient location. (Mileage fees will apply.)
You will be notified that your pet’s cremains are ready as quickly as the selected process allows.
If you want a decorative or more permanent option for your beloved pet, we carry a selection of decorative urns and remembrance jewelry onsite. We are happy to assist with placing a special order for engraving, color, shape, style and breed specific items through catalogs available at our office and on-line.
Your pet’s remains are handled with dignity and respect at all times; our identification and tracking processes ensure that only your pet’s cremains are returned to you.
We respect and support the amazing working animals that make so many lives better with their eager, dedicated, loving service. Our cremation services are offered at NO CHARGE to certain licensed K-9, service and rescue trained animals. If you know someone who works with these special animals, please let them know we are here should the need ever arise.
Cremation is “the process of reducing the body involved by exposing it to intense heat.” The body is reduced to its basic mineral form. Although processed remains are commonly called “ashes,” the proper term is “cremains.”
We accept payment by cash, credit card or debit card.
Farm Animal Surcharge
Because most farm animals require substantial additional fuel for the cremation process, there is an additional fee, depending upon the type and weight of the pet. This applies to sheep, goats, alpacas, llamas, pigs, etc. You must contact Gene at 207-943-6474 to discuss.
For Private Cremations, transportation to and/or from our facility is available for a mileage fee. Pricing is $1 per mile driven, both ways. For example, if we are picking up at a location 25 miles from the shop the transportation fee would be $50.
Subject to change and availability.
POCKET PET PRICING!
We don't think you'll find this service anywhere else for a total cost to you of $35. If you have a pet that is 2 pounds or less, you can now select the service "Pocket Pet".
Now we can process your smaller pet like a hamster, gerbil, goldfish, bearded dragon or other small beloved pet for a TOTAL COST OF $35.
Please call us if you have any questions. (And remember, if your pet is too large for the Pocket Pet Price the next level of service is a Semi-Private for just $65.
In a private cremation, your pet is the only pet in the cremator. A complimentary urn is included. Cost is $110 plus $1 per pound. Available for pets up to 200 pounds.

Available only for smaller pets (up to 35 pounds). In a semi-private (partitioned) cremation, your pet is placed in a defined section of the unit and is handled carefully and individually. A firebrick/beam is placed between pets. There is no commingling of matter. A complimentary urn is included. The cost is $65 plus $1 per pound.
