CONT

L'incinération collective constitue-t-elle un service de second choix? Ce type d’incinération est pratiqué quand un propriétaire ne souhaite pas récupérer les cendres de son compagnon; l’animal est alors traité avec tout le respect et la dignité qui lui sont dus. Ce service vient remplacer l’équarrissage autrefois en vigueur.

OBS

incinération collective; incinération commune : termes couramment utilisés. Cependant, on tend à privilégier «crémation» plutôt que le terme «incinération» pour exprimer le lien affectif du maître pour son animal.
