We saw the need for an aftercare company that transparently gave respectful and personal care to our orphaned cats & kittens. When we came down to it, we wanted to be a company run by cat lovers for cat lovers. We also felt that, in today’s world, being environmentally responsible is an important part of honoring our feline friends and protecting the Earth. So, we created Homeagain Aquamation to take care of your pets in the exact same way we want our own pets to be treated. And we decided to use the technology called aquamation. Aquamation is water-based and 100% green, providing huge benefits over fire-based cremation. It replicates and accelerates the natural process of decomposition, making it the most natural aftercare available. Homeagain Aquamation has become a local leader in setting a new standard for the care of your pets.
Many pet owners haven’t heard of aquamation because it has only become available to the public in the last few years; however, it has been the preferred method of aftercare for universities and large organizations for decades. It is not only a 100% green, water-based system, but a far gentler process than fire-based pet cremation. It works by replicating what happens to a body when buried and is, in fact, just an acceleration of what Mother Nature does. Your pet’s ash is returned in a decorative urn and includes a personalized, laser engraved paw print on an elegant round of bamboo. As pet owners, we know what it’s like to have to grieve such a difficult loss. That’s why we make the process friendly, seamless, and loving, because we understand you want the best for your pet’s aftercare. Few, if any, companies go to the extent we do.
Alternative to Cremation
Aquamation is the newest, safest and most natural process that you can have done for your pet. As an alternative to traditional cremation, it is far superior in almost every way. Cremation requires enormous amounts of energy and, consequently, releases tons of toxic, green house gases into the atmosphere. Aquamation only uses 1/20th of the energy that cremation does and has zero toxic emissions.
In fact, Aquamation’s entire carbon footprint is only one-tenth of what fire-based cremation produces. It also:
- Cuts natural gas use by 90%
- Cuts carbon dioxide emissions by 90%
- Cuts electricity by 66%
- Is 100% mercury free
For pet owners who care about the environment, Aquamation is by far the safest and only choice. Read more about the process of Aquamation.
As with any new process, there can be some confusion as companies try to capitalize on it. There are three choices for a pet’s aftercare: Aquamation, cremation, and burial. There is no such thing as cremation by water, water cremation, or aqua cremation. Cremation is an oxidative process, meaning it reduces a body by incinerating it. Aquamation is a gentler, water based process, far from cremation.
You might be asking “what is Aquamation?” Aquamation is the natural process known as alkaline hydrolysis. Using water flow, temperature and alkalinity, it is more like natural decomposition when compared to any other method. Following both the Aquamation or cremation process, only the bones remain. Unlike cremation, Aquamated remains resemble fine sand and contain no black, carbonized ash, and no large bone fragments. We’ve found that seeing the clean, pure sand makes it easier to hold on to the precious memories of your pet.
