End of Life and Pet Memorial Services

OHS offers several options for end-of-life services and a final resting place for your pet.


Euthanasia Services

When it is time to have your pet euthanized, we suggest you use your regular veterinarian. However, if you do choose OHS’ euthanasia service, our licensed technicians use the same painless procedure as a veterinarian. Please note, OHS does not offer owner present euthanasia. Fees range from $40 to $150.

Hours: 10:00am – 5:00pm, seven days a week. No appointment necessary. For more information, call (503) 285-7722 ext. 212

Cremation Services

We provide a private cremation services for families who wish to keep the remains of their pet. Private cremations are scheduled as soon as possible, but may take up to two weeks depending on the number of other requests at the time. If you decide to have your pet’s remains returned, we will provide you with a standard container, but you are welcome to furnish a receptacle of your own. Fees range from $100 to $250.

For those who do not wish to keep the remains of their pet, general cremation services are available. Fees range from $40 to $100.
