Animal Mummification Costs

[Dog & Cat Mummies]

It is through donations that Summum is able to provide this spiritual service. The cost of mummifying an animal can run anywhere from $9,000 to well over $100,000 depending on the size of the animal and the type of Mummiform you choose.

Understand that Modern Mummification is a highly comprehensive process requiring five to ten months to complete. It requires great attention to detail and involves very meticulous work. Because of the lasting protection bronze provides, our standard practice is to use bronze for the Mummiform.

Summum reserves the right to refuse Modern Mummification services under certain conditions.

To determine whether your cat will fit inside the small Mummiform, measure your cat from its nose along the back to the base of the tail. If your cat measures 20 inches or less, it will fit inside the small Mummiform. Otherwise, we will need to place it inside the large Mummiform.
