From loving goodbyes
to lasting memories.

Cremation services

Our cremation services are designed to provide families with peace of mind and their pets with the care they deserve. A Best Friends associate will pick up your companion from your home or veterinary clinic in the Albuquerque or Rio Rancho area and transfer them into our care. Or if you prefer, you may bring your pet into our facility during business hours.

Families can choose either private or group cremation, and have the option to schedule a viewing prior to cremation. We will prepare your pet in a private room and you and your loved ones can spend time saying your goodbyes.

Private Cremation: $215

Only one companion is present in the cremation chamber. Cremated remains are returned to the family.

Group Cremation: $115

Multiple pets are present in the cremation chamber. Cremated remains are scattered in a pet ossuary.

Memorialization services

Honor your companion with a personalized memorial service. Gathering together with family and friends to say goodbye can bring great comfort. Best Friends can help you plan a unique and meaningful service that reflects the personality of your pet and the bond you shared.


Keep the friend that never left your side close by. From personalized urns to customizable jewelry, to artwork with your pet’s personal touch, our selection of keepsakes are a beautiful reminder of your friendship.
