About Benson Brook Pet Cremation Services


My name is Gary Smith and I’m the owner of Benson Brook Pet Cremations. We are a family-owned and operated business located in Parsonsfield, Maine. We serve local clients, as well as out of state clients who chose to bring their animals to us for cremation care. I am involved in all phases of operations and will work side by side with all customers, addressing concerns and honoring your wishes.


As a pet owner, I know how hard it is to deal with the death of a pet. My most recent pets, Gretchen, a Rottweiler, died 19 years ago and Walter, a Bull Mastiff passed seven years ago. Thinking of them still brings a smile to my face and happy tears to my eyes.


We take pride in both our new buildings and equipment and encourage pet owners and veterinarians to visit us.



Our Promise To You

We know that losing a pet can be like losing a member of the family. You have every right to expect that whoever cares for your pet respects your wishes.


It’s our mission as well as our business. We’re longtime, loving pet owners too and respect your loss. We provide personal and respectful care for your pet. You and your pet deserve that.


We provide a respectful place if you would like to be there when we care for your pet. We are committed to providing a level of personal care far beyond the industry standards of any commercial providers, including out-of-state providers used by many local veterinarian offices. It is important to contact us ASAP and to let your vet know that you have chosen Benson Brook Pet Cremation Services to handle your pet's aftercare. 


The Benson Brook Pet Cremation Services facility is located in Parsonsfield along the Maine/New Hampshire border in the western foothills of Southern Maine. If you are using GPS to find us, please call us ahead to verify the directions.


Our service area covers all of Maine and New Hampshire and we occasionally get calls from Massachusetts and Vermont.

"As one of my alpacas was gravely ill, a plan that I thought was in place for final arrangements fell apart at the last minute.

I was lucky enough to find Benson Brook Pet Cremations on the web, and Gary was immediately responsive to my situation. He was at the farm within hours of my call. I'm thankful that he was there, as he made this difficult time for me so much easier."
