Burial & Cremation
Since the after-life care for pets is our only business, we are especially sensitive
to the needs of the families we serve. Our services are designed to dignify the
after-life care of pets while providing support and understanding. Because each
family’s needs are different, each has the option of choosing any one or all of our
services that lovingly and appropriately help you memorialize your cherished pet
in a way that is most comfortable and suitable for you personally.

Communal Cremation and Scattering of Cremains
The pet is cremated with other pets and the cremated remains are spread on the
cemetery grounds, in the Prairie View Garden, at Rolling Acres.
As pet parents become more aware of the options for the after-life care of their pet, they
are taking the responsibility of deciding what options they want for their beloved pet
ahead of time. To save you the anguish of having to make painful decisions immediately
following the death of your beloved pet, we also offer pre-arranged plans. Once a person
has pre-arranged, the price will never go up, no matter how many years go by before the
plan is needed. Many people have told us they find it is easier to make decisions
regarding their pet's final arrangements before the time of loss, a time when they are
experiencing a great deal of stress and grief. We have payment plans available,
according to one's needs. We invite you to visit Rolling Acres Memorial Gardens for Pets

CLINIC PICK-UP SERVICE
Our regular free pick-up service at the veterinary clinics in the Kansas City Metropolitan
area is on Tuesdays and Fridays, although we do provide free pickup services as needed
any day of the week. Residential pick-ups have a minimum $85.00 fee during business
hours; additional charges will apply after business hours. *
Decorative urns are available, starting at $30.00.
Attended Cremation: Includes a visitation with their pet prior to the private cremation plus
the family can sit comfortably in our witnessing room and observe the cremation process.
There is no charge for the Attended Cremation; however there may be a fee for preparing the
pet for the visitation.
The pet is cremated privately, all by him/herself and the cremated remains are
returned in a basic urn, unless a decorative urn is selected, along with a
Certificate of Cremation, the Rainbow Bridge poem, information on coping with
the loss of the pet and our Pet Grief Recovery Group.
Our cemetery is run in a manner very similar to a human cemetery. Each pet is buried in its
own private grave. Detailed records are kept in the office. The cost of a burial starts at
$419.00, for the space and the interment fee, and goes up from there depending on what the
family selects. We offer caskets, granite or bronze memorials, viewings, committal services
and memorial services. We have caskets available, but the Cemetery does not require one. It
is up to the family whether or not they want a casket. If a casket is not selected, then we bury
the pet in a cadaver bag. Our cemetery spaces are 3' x 2' and start at $324.00. A portion
(20%) of each space price goes into our care trust fund. The interment fee (the fee for
opening and closing the grave) ranges from $95.00 to $290.00. Our small caskets start at
$90.00 and go up in price depending on the size and the style of the casket. The family may
also wish to have a viewing and a committal service. The committal service on weekdays is
$75.00, on Saturdays $175.00. Preparation for viewing includes bathing the pet and brushing
him/her out. The charge for this service starts at $50.00 and goes up depending on the size
of the pet.
Another burial option is to bury the cremated remains of your pet in our Rose Garden, which
is an area only for pets who have been individually cremated and then buried. The Private
Cremation as well as a bronze memorial, and all services necessary to inter the pet's
cremains, are included in the price. This is the only "package" item we have. A 6" x 6" bronze
memorial is required in the Rose Garden.
