Pet Cremation & Memorials

We are animal lovers at Hansen-Spear and are a pet friendly environment. We have food and water bowls available and can have a large kennel available, with advanced notice. Sonoma, one of Jeff and Theresa’s Irish Setters, used to spend her days in our pet office. If you would like to bring your family dog to the visitation or to be with the family for the family viewing, we can help you. Please ask us how we can help accommodate your pet needs at the visitation or funeral service.

Our pets are an important part of our lives and hold a special place in our hearts. When a pet dies, we grieve just as we would if another member of our family has died. This is both normal and healthy. We have information and literature on pet grief to help you.

If you would like information on pet cremation, memorialization, keepsakes, paw print jewelry, custom artwork of your pet by Theresa Spear or brochures and literature on pet loss and grief, please contact us.

At Hansen-Spear Funeral Home in Quincy, Illinois, we are here to help families who love and cherish their pets as members of their families. We are here to help you.
