Loyal Companion Pet Cremation, Inc.

Faced with the impending death of their dog, Cassius, the Newmans began exploring their options and found that the cremation options were limited. The closest crematory that offered truly private cremations was an hour away. Following his death, they learned the need for their family to grieve together and to memorialize Cassius' impact on their lives. Understanding that a loyal pet companion is in many ways a member of the family, the Newmans have recently opened Loyal Companion Pet Cremation, Inc. on January 5, 2012.  The facility is located at 43 Amy Way in Hanover, just off Gittís Run Road.  The office can be reached by calling 717-698-1970 or you can visit the website at

Loyal Companionís dedicated staff is available to answer your questions when the need arises.  They are able to prearrange your requests prior to the death or take care of those arrangements when the death occurs.  

They can transfer your pet into their care from your home or the veterinarianís office, or you may bring your pet to the facility upon appointment.  The cremated remains are returned to you as soon as you desire, without unnecessary delay.

Family is important, so if there are requests of the younger members of the family, please do not hesitate in letting them be known.  The staff of Loyal Companion will do everything in their power to help create an experience that will help you during this difficult time.  


Loyal Companion Pet Cremation, Inc. offers a state of the art pet crematory with a well appointed room for family members to offer a final goodbye.  It has an office to allow for the selection of cremation urns, caskets, grave markers and other items for memorialization.

The staff is available to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to bring your pet into our care.  Pets may be transported from their place of death, whether that be in their home or from the veterinarian's office.  Pets may also be brought to our facility on 43 Amy Way in Hanover by the family and by appointment only.  When confronted with a loss, be sure to insist upon Loyal Companion's local, dignified and affordable service. 

Cremation Options

It is important to know the different options available when choosing cremation for your pet.  Loyal Companion is pleased to offer a truly private cremation when only one pet is cremated at a time or the alternative of a communal cremation.

Communal:  Pets are cremated at the same time along with other pets. Cremated remains are not returned to the family.

Private:  Pets are cremated individually from beginning to end of the cremation process.  This option is performed using the same human industry standards with a guaranteed return of the pet's cremated remains.
