Eco -Friendly Pet Cremation
By Dr. Kristi Freeman
Whether you desire to receive
your beloved pet’s ashes,
respectfully scatter the ashes,
or just want us to gently remove your
pet’s body, we can help. Here at Graceful
Departure Pet Center, we know how
heart-wrenching it can be to face losing a
member of the family, especially when it
is a beloved pet. The bond we form can
be very deep. Our aim is to make that
journey the least painful and as smooth as
possible for both the pet and its people.
Dr. Kristi Freeman is highly recommended and
respected in the veterinary community. She was
also the first to start in home euthanasia.
Not only is Graceful Departure, the Nation’s
1st Fear-Free End of Life Clinic, but we offer
San Diego’s first eco-friendly alternative
to flame based cremation called Alkaline
Hydrolysis (AH), also known as Aquamation.
What is Aquamation?
• Aquamation is a water based cremation
vs. traditional flame based cremation.
• Over 90% of energy is saved when
compared to flame based cremation.
• No burning of fossil fuels.
• You get 20% more ashes back.
