Choosing to put a loved companion animal down can be a very difficult decision. Humane Society Silicon Valley provides a humane, painless and dignified death for your pets and you are welcome to be present during your pet's euthanasia. You can choose for us to care for your pets final resting or have them returned to you through Koefran private cremation services.

Cremations are returned in a finished cedar urn accompanied by a memorial card for the pet owner.  Private cremation clients can request a paw print impression plaque for an additional $60.  Your pet's paw print is hand painted with an inscription of your pet's name. The print is glazed and kiln fired, leaving an everlasting story to be shared. Your pet's hind foot will be used for the imprint unless otherwise requested.

Our Customer Service department can be reached during business hours to answer any questions, please call (408) 262-2133 x 110.
