Hickory Hill Crematorium aids pet owners
Cass County is now home to a pet crematory, Hickory Hill Crematorium. Owners Dan and Sandy Bergerud built the crematory on their property. “As pet owners ourselves, we understand the special bond that exists between a person and their pet,” the Bergerud’s pamphlet says. “Losing a pet is like losing a member of the family. Hickory Hill Crematorium provides a dignified farewell to your beloved companion.”
According to manager Paula Morris, owner Dan Bergerud, who is a veterinarian at Cass Vet, was unhappy with the slow turnover rate he was experiencing in outsourcing pet cremations. This is what inspired Hickory Hill Crematorium, where you can have your pet’s remains back in as little as week, but no more than two weeks.
