Understanding pet cremation

Losing a pet is never easy. Whether it’s a feline friend or a loyal dog, it often feels like they will always be by our side. Even smaller pets become part of the family in no time. Rabbits, birds, rodents and reptiles are just as special as those larger furry friends. When our pets die, regardless of their size, it leaves a hole in our lives that cannot be filled.

Pet cremation is not only a means to honour your pet after they pass, but it’s also a great way for you and your family to deal with the grief of losing a loved one.

All Guide Dogs receive our service free of charge. The Guide Dog registration number must be provided. Please call us on 1300 112 711 to book their cremation.

The pet cremation process

At Patch & Purr, we understand that the loss of a beloved pet is an incredibly difficult time. That's why we are committed to offering you more than just a service. We are here to offer you absolute peace of mind and comfort as you say goodbye to your furry friend.

Our unique Pet Tracker™ technology ensures that the ashes you receive belong only to your beloved pet. Our 7-Point Pet Tracking System has been thoughtfully designed to give you the assurance that your pet is being treated with the same love and care that you gave them during their life.

From the moment you speak to one of our friendly and knowledgeable team members, to the day of cremation, we will provide you with the support and reassurance you need. We understand that every pet is unique, and we will treat your beloved companion with the utmost respect and dignity.

At our South Coast location in Kanahooka, and up north in Morisset, we provide a comfortable and peaceful space where you can say your final farewell to your pet. Our viewing window into the cremation room allows you to be with your pet every step of the way.

At Patch & Purr, we are more than just a pet cremation service. We are here to provide you with the emotional support and understanding you need during this difficult time. Trust us to care for your beloved pet as if they were our own.

Why choose a pet cremation?

Pet cremation is an increasingly popular choice for bereaved pet owners. Scatter your loyal friend’s ashes in their favourite spot or buy an urn to keep your pet in your home long after they have passed.

Before pet cremation, pet burial was a very popular option for families wanting to keep their loved one at home. However, pet burial can become a problem when you move house or situation changes.

At Patch & Purr, we always treat your beloved pet with the care and respect they deserve even after they're gone. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, we can guarantee the ashes you receive are your pet's and only your pet's.
