Welcome to Sacramento Pet Aquamation

Gentle alternative to flame cremation

Aquamation is also known as alkaline hydrolysis. This gentle form of water-based pet cremation is an environmentally friendly process that uses the peaceful flow of water, low temperature, and alkali to mimic the natural decomposition that occurs after burial.

Aquamation is simply an advanced technology that accelerates this natural process. Unlike fire-based pet cremation for dogs, cats, other small animals, aquamation does not release harmful greenhouse gases into our environment. After the aquamation process, only the pure mineral ash of the bones remain

  • A flameless process that uses water instead of fire
  • A gentle responsible and respectful process
  • Over 90% energy savings when compared to flame-based cremation
  • No burning of fossil fuels
  • 20% more ash remains returned to the family
