We are pleased to be able to offer a legal option of burial to our clients. Republic Services in Apache Junction works with Heavy Hearts to make this legal option available to our clients. Republic Services is diligent in doing a good job, not only for the environment, but also to serve its customers to the best of its ability. The burying of large animals such as horses is regulated by state and environmental departments. The staff that we work with have helped us provide a nice resting place for our animals. They prepare an area for us upon our arrival at the facility and immediately cover the animal. We are very comfortable with the service that Republic Services provides.
Many people choose individual cremation. We will provide full service to facilitate the cremation of your loved pet. When planning for end-of-life care with your veterinarian, let them know you would like cremation and they can help to make the arrangements through us. If your pet passes away at home please call or text (928) 965-8800 to schedule the pickup. The cremation company offers the following options:
- Individual cremation with return of ashes in a urn
- Communal cremation with no return of ashes.
Heavy Hearts is available to provide deceased pet removal to veterinary clinics and diagnostic laboratories, including the University of Arizona and Midwestern University. Animals are often taken to these locations for postmortem testing for insurance and personal diagnostic reasons.
Independent rendering is also available to our clients. Some people want their animal to be used for the purpose of making useful products. If this is the service that you choose, call us with that special request and we can make the arrangements to transport your animal specifically to the rendering plant.
