Cremation Services

Pet Loss - CSW Farms

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton’s cremation services, available to all pet owners, are administered by the caring staff of CSW Farms. The organization is an equine and pet crematorium and memorial specializing in thoughtful, dignified cremation of all creatures, great and small. 

General Cremation

CSW Farms maintains a pristine nature preserve along the banks of the Big Darby Creek in Galloway, Ohio. Within the nature preserve is an organic tree farm developed as a memorial to honor the memory of cherished animal friends. All cremains from general cremations are placed in the tree farm, to become part of this living memorial. 

Private Cremation

Pet owners may also choose private cremation, in which their pet’s ashes will be returned to them in a wooden memorial box with an engraved plaque. Additional fees apply for the return of ashes and are based on the pet’s weight. Please call us at 937/268-PETS (7387) for more information.
