For most of us, our pets are like family. When they pass away, we believe in saying goodbye in the same respectful, caring, and dignified manner as any other member of the family.
At Strode Funeral Home’s Pet Care Center, we offer a variety of cremation service packages to fit most needs and budgets, and we can accommodate most household pets regardless of size or weight.
All packages include transfer of your pet to our facility from any Stillwater-area veterinary clinic, necessary refrigeration and cremation of your pet in our dedicated pet-only facility. Your pet’s ashes are then scattered at Sunset Memorial Gardens Pet Cemetery or returned to Strode Funeral Home for family pick-up.
Our staff is available 24-hours a day to take your calls, with local pick-up service available from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. seven days a week. We can also receive your pet at Strode any time with advance notice. After-hours and out-of-Stillwater pick-up can be arranged with an additional charge.
We know your pet is very important to you, and we will treat them with care and respect. We are a local, family-owned and operated business, and are here to help you any way we can.
Thank you for placing your trust in us.
