Why Choose Dog Cremation?

Not only is a cremation a respectful way to honour your dog, but it’s also a great way for you and your family to deal with the grief of losing a pet.

Our helpful staff will support you through every stage of the process, so you will feel informed about what is happening to your family pet in their final moments.

After the cremation, you will receive the ashes of your pet alone. It’s up to you what you do with ashes, but we recommend scattering them in your dog’s favourite outdoor spot or keeping them in an ornamental urn in your home.

Dog Cremation Prices

We offer a variety of pricing plans to match your budget and needs. Dog cremations can vary from community cremations, where your pet is cremated alongside other pets and you receive a share of the ashes, to private cremations, where you only receive your pet’s ashes.

The cost of a dog cremation varies depending on your dog’s weight and what level of service you require, including home visits and urns. Take a look at our pricing plans page to learn more about the cost of cremating a dog.

Call us directly on 1300 112 711 or contact us via the booking form and a Patch & Purr team member will be in touch as soon as possible.
