One of the hardest decisions when losing your pet is what to do with their ashes. Pets have a character and personality’s all of their own.  For the fur friends in our lives that were adventurous, energetic and a bit of a rascal, you may want to think about scattering their ashes at a special place that you shared, like their favourite park or holiday destination or down the beach. For our quiet, loyal, patient friends that loved the comfy snuggles more so than the dirt and grass, you may want to consider keeping them somewhere safe at home and always with you.

All individual pet cremations are conducted in their own chamber to ensure you will receive only your pet’s ashes. Your pet is identified with their own unique identification and this will only be removed prior to placing into the cremation chamber, after cremation is completed and the cremains cooled the identification is placed back in. We know who we are with at all given times. You can rest assured our staff has performed the entire process with the utmost dignity and compassion and professionalism.

Our crematorium offers only individual cremations of pets and includes a selection of packages to choose from. We personally transfer your pet from wherever death has occurred and return the ashes back to you personally or to your chosen veterinary clinic. View Cremation Services

No we are not able to put your pet to sleep this has to be done by professional veterinary staff.

As we are all aware death can happen when we least expect it. You can call us any time of the day or night. Sometimes we may not get to you for a couple of hours and we can advise you how to keep your pet properly during this time.

We will contact the veterinary clinic to organise a suitable time to bring your pet into our care.

We can help you by talking, but this is a decision only you the pet parents can make. Call your veterinary clinic and get their guidance as they know your pet very well.

At times we can get products that are damaged, we make sure boxes/ urns are checked to make sure you have nothing but the best quality.
