Rainbow Bridge Services

What is Private Pet Cremation?

Rainbow Bridge offers private cremations. 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. Because we do each creamtion individually, our cremation turnaround can average three to seven business days.

How do I use the services provided by Rainbow Bridge?

We work with all veterinary clinics in Omaha, Council Bluffs and the surrounding area. Please let your veterinarian know you are choosing Rainbow Bridge for aftercare of your pet. Your veterinarian can contact us to arrange transportation of your pet to us for Rainbow Bridge Cremation. If you prefer, you can bring your animal to our main building at the Nebraska Humane Society during business hours. No appointment is necessary. Simply tell the desk attendant you need Rainbow Bridge services.


  • Monday through Friday: Noon to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
