HOUSTON — A Houston company that already sends human remains out of this world will offer the same memorial space flights for four-legged loved ones.
Celestis announced this week that rockets carrying the cremated remains of dogs and cats will start this fall.
Spokeswoman Pazia (PAH’-zee-uh) Schonfeld says the cost will be about the same as for human remains sent into space and returned, starting at about $995.
Celestis Pets is working with a California company, Into the Sunset Pet Transition Center of San Diego, for pet cremations.
