Athens Pet Cremation | Athens GA funeral home and cremation

Welcome to Athens
Pet Cremation 

Athens Pet Cremation is in partnership with Lord & Stephens Funeral Homes. Lord & Stephens has been serving families since 1989 and we consider pets to be an important member of the family. With over thirty years of serving the Athens community we recognized a need for local pet cremation. In 2020 we established a locally owned and operated pet crematory, Athens Pet Cremation. We are Athens first pet crematory ready to serve you with excellent care and sincere compassion right here in your hometown.

We guarantee that your pet will be handled with care at our pet crematory. We can bring your pet into our care from your home, vet, or at our crematory by appointment. Since we are local we are able to bring your pet into our care and return their cremains to you much sooner.

Sometimes our pets pass unexpectedly but usually we know when the end is near. We offer pre-arrangement so that when the time comes to say goodbye, you won’t need to worry about the details. Contact us and we’ll make sure the final days with your pet are free of any arrangement worries. Athens Pet Cremation in partnership with Lord & Stephens is here to care for your entire family.

Why choose us?

During this difficult time, we extend to you our excellent care and sincere compassion. We are locally owned and operated, which means we complete the entire cremation process right here in your hometown, from bringing your pet into our care to returning their cremains to you. The families we have served have expressed how much peace and comfort they have in knowing their pet was cared for locally . 

Here is what the families we have served have to say…

“We have used Athens Pet Cremation in the past and will continue in the future. The staff is so attentive and caring. They are beyond efficient and will guide you through the process from start to finish.”

“We didn’t expect to find a place that treated the loss of our furry friend, the same way they would if it was one of our human friends. They made handling our loss much easier.”

“The care and special touches given to our senior dog were above and beyond our expectations. The staff treated him like a beloved member of their family. And treated my wife and I the same way. I highly recommend Athens Pet Cremation in your time of sadness and need.”

How it works?

A service representative will bring your pet into our care from your vet, home or by appointment at our crematory. The cremains can be picked up at our location or returned to your vet or home.

Every pet is assigned a one-time use QR Code which accompanies and tracks your pet in real-time through the entire cremation process, ensuring 100% accuracy.

We offer three levels of cremation to meet the needs of every family’s budget.

Your beloved pet’s cremains will be returned in a memory container or you can select a personalized urn or keepsake. The package will also include a celebration video and any additional memory options selected.
