Always make sure that you are selecting and making
arrangements with a pet cremation facility
with proven experience and extensive knowledge
in the pet death care industry.

Ask to see their facility,
their license to cremate a pet and ask to
see the crematory operator’s certificate to operate a crematory

and ask to see the directors license as a
” Certified Pet Cremation Arranger “.

Do some research and look into the cremation facility before you choose because
his is an UNREGULATED INDUSTRY and therefor

with no recourse of the cremation of a pet.

You should be informed and know exactly
who is handling something as important
as the care of your cherished family companion
because not every facility maintains current
certifications in this business nor certifications
to operate crematories.

Don’t settle for a business who has NO experience
with the funeral industry.
Make sure the business you choose has
been consistent in the pet death care business for years,
who has a proven record of
quality and reliable dedicated service to our community

knowing that your pet is being taken care of by

How Do You Really Know If Your 

Pet Is Cremated Individually ? 


Here’s how you know with us and our

Electronic Pet Tracking System

Jacksonville Pet Funeral Home and Pet Cremation Center
would like to introduce you to

“Pet Trax”

a state of the art electronic individual pet cremation tracking system.

We developed and use the ONLY individual pet electronic cremation tracking
system in N.E Florida and S.E. Georgia
to prove beyond a doubt that your pet
is cremated individually.

“Pet Trax” is a electronic individual pet cremation tracking system
developed by James Hughey, our pet death care director

that provides you with a detailed tracking report called the
Individual Cremation Data Report or “ICDR”
that specifically tracks your pet’s EVERY movement
and all phase’s of the death care of your pet while in our care.
It tracks specifically from the moment we receive your pet in to our care,
every step of the individual cremation used to cremate your beloved pet,
right down to the exact crematory, one of our three crematories,
which ALL 3 are located here on premises.
“Pet Trax” record’s the date, the time,
the duration of the cremation procedure
and when the cremation procedure is completed.
It is exactly that detailed with each movement
of your pet while in our care.

“Pet Trax” time stamp’s the date and time of exactly every phase
of your pet’s movement while in our care proving
that it truly is your pet being cremated INDIVIDUALLY
and NOT being cremating with multiple pets
where the ashes of your pet are co-mingled and mixed up with other pets.
We developed this program in the January 2014
and tested this system from August 2014 until December 2014
when it was ready
to be introduced to our pet community and implemented ! 
It is a very specific electronic tracking program!

Now it is time for us to make this a part of your
cremation experience so you will have the
peace of mind knowing you are receiving your pet’s ashes !
We are here for you to make sure you get
YOUR beloved pet’s ashes back and not those of another……. PERIOD!
This is our commitment to you !

You exceeded my expectations in providing all of us pet families with a truly heartwarming service.  Thank you so much. 
I know how much work goes into an event such as this and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 
I still miss both of my pets (Rooney and Blue) very much, but your event was
an opportunity for me to give them the respect and show my love.

Thank you so very much.
