Equestrian Cremation

At Saint Francis Pet Crematory, we realize the decision to cremate your pet should be made with careful consideration. The right choice is one that requires careful thought and with the best interest of the horse in mind.

End the Trail Respectfully...
We all wish for our animals to live happy and healthy lives and experience a peaceful end. If we consider what we would do in the event of an emergency or how we would react if the life of the equine became painful and long suffering, we can prepare ourselves for the end of the trail.

In 1994 Saint Francis Pet Crematory was the first to recognize the needs of equestrians when dealing with the loss of a proud animal. We are the first crematory to introduce large animal cremation in the United States. We are fully licensed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture and Environmental Protection Agency.


Transportation/Pickup- All horses are treated with respect and dignity.

Saint Francis offers transport services through Brier Hill livestock enterprises at a separate rate from cremation fee.

Urns - Tasteful wooden urn is available for $225 or basic cremains return for $50.
