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, unlike traditional pet cremation, your pet will be cremated alone. Thanks to our unique Pet Tracker 360 technology, you will receive the ashes of your pet, and only your pet.

From the initial conversation with one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members to the day of cremation, you will feel reassured your loved one is being cared for just as you cared for them in life. 

Our South Coast location in Kanahooka and up north in Morisset offer a comfortable and quiet space to say a final farewell to your pet. We even have a viewing window into the cremation room so that you can be by your pet’s side each step of the way.

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.
