Our Commitment to Green


Here at Faithful Companions we believe that being environmentally friendly is an important part of our daily service. We are proud to offer not only the best of services to our clients, but also the best of machinery and vehicles for our daily operations.

Our cremators are specifically designed for our pet cremation service and are state-of-the-art in design and efficiency while emitting no harmful pollutants or emissions other than heat. The design of both the private cremation cremator and the communal cremation cremator keeps our service efficient and uses only the minimum amount of natural resources needed without any waste.


While we know that the cremators are the most important machines in our profession, the second most important is our vehicles. Since we have daily pickups and 24 hour service, we must have a vehicle that is both efficient for driving, but also clean-burning for our environment. That is why we chose to use a Freightliner Sprinter Van specifically built for our needs. It allows us to make multiple stops on a single trip and is also environmentally friendly.

The Sprinter has BlueTEC SCR diesel technology and complies with the strict standards of the EPA. It reduces emissions by filtering the exhaust gases and sending them through a catalytic converter, where they are mixed with the water-based additive DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid). In this process, pollutant nitrogen oxides are converted into harmless nitrogen and water. The result is a substantial reduction in pollutants and soot particles and one of the world's cleanest diesel engines. It is a state-of-the-art engine technology that generates incredible fuel economy (25 miles to the gallon) and a remarkably low noise level.

"Great people! Service was quicker than I could have imagined and I had my beloved pet back the next day. My vet referred me to them because she uses them on a daily basis, and now I know why. I chose to get an urn and they had a room with everything they offer. You can tell that they care and want to help people."

"I just wanted to say thanks again for your kindness and service for Jake. When you have to make the very tough decision ( to put your pet down ), the emotions run very deep. Jake was an incredible friend and family member to us, so cremation was the logical choice. Through all of the turmoil of that day, your class, professionalism and compassion to the matter was " Top Drawer ". It takes a very special person to be in your line of work. You meet your profession with an outstanding attitude! I will recommend Faithful Companions to everyone I know, and meet."
