Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society 

Afterlife Services

We understand how valued pets can be to their family. With that in mind, the Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society offers aftercare arrangements to families whose beloved family members have passed away. There are a few different options available.

Private Cremations

The Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society offers private cremations to pet owners. This means that one pet at a time is cremated in our private crematorium. Each pet is hand placed into the crematorium.  Once cremation is complete the ash is hand collected and placed in a container of your choice. Because of this you are assured that the ashes you receive are indeed those of your beloved friend. We perform private cremations on a daily basis and cremate in order of arrival. Our cremation turnaround is generally three to seven business days. You will receive a phone call once the ashes are ready, and you can pick them up at the rescue league.


Many people don't know this, but you have a choice of where your pet is cremated. Not all crematories are the same and we encourage you to look into your options. The Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society strives to always exceed your expectations and offer you the same quality of service that we would expect for our own beloved companions.


  • You may bring your animal in person to the Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society.
  • No appointment is necessary; you may come in anytime during business hours.
  • We also work with most veterinary clinics in Jasper County. You can talk directly with your veterinarian and his or her staff about your aftercare arrangements. If you choose to use the Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society, after your pet is euthanized your veterinarian can contact us to arrange transportation of your pet to us for cremation.
