We offer multiple cremation and personalized memorialization options to honor your pet in a unique and special way. We provide three core cremation options as well as the ability to pre-plan and pre-purchase your pet’s arrangements.

Witnessing Cremation

This is an opportunity for the family to help perform this final service for their pet by being present at the beginning of a private cremation. With a witnessing cremation the family receives their pet’s cremated remains on the same day.

Communal Cremation

Multiple pets are present in the cremation chamber, but they are grouped together. The cremated remains are scattered in our pet ossuary, which is located in Best Friends Forever Cemetery at Sunset Memorial Park.

Private Cremation

Only one pet is present in the cremation chamber.

Pre-Purchase Pet Services

This selection allows families the opportunity to plan for and purchase services and merchandise ahead of time, at current prices.
This option relieves the family of the burden of having to make decisions and gather funds at the time of need.

All pre-purchase services and/or merchandise require a 20% down payment and up to 90 days to complete the payment. Full payment must be made prior to Best Friends providing the requested services and/or merchandise. If the selection is unavailable at the time of need, an item of equal or greater value will be substituted.

Transfer Services

If you are unable to bring your pet to us, we can take your pet into our care from any vet clinic in the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho area during business hours Monday through Friday at no additional charge.

Best Friends also provides in-home pickups for an additional charge. The in-home charge for the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho area during business hours Monday through Saturday is $100.00 and after hours and Sundays the charge is $175.00.

Making Online Arrangements

You can make an online arrangement in our online store. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We do not take American Express or Care Credit.
