I don't know much about this, but learned (when Cathryn's cat died) that NYC banned cremations of animals (and people?) a few years back. The old crematoria ship the bodies of animals out to Long Island to be cremated.
Maybe a google search of cremation NYC will turnup info.

sources would be welcome.
