For many, the death of a dog is like losing a close family member. Dog cremation is just one way to honour your four-legged best friend, who was always there for you, even at the end. Once your loyal pet dog is no longer around, you will be faced with the difficult decision of what to do with your pet’s body. At Patch & Purr, we offer dog cremation services where your pet will be treated with the care and respect they deserve.

At Patch & Purr, your beloved pooch will be cremated alone. Our unique Pet Tracker 360 means that you will be sure that the ashes you receive will be those of only your pet. We guarantee full transparency in every part of the dog cremation process.
Visit us and meet the friendly team, who are experts in delivering outstanding pet cremation services. Take advantage of our comfortable and spacious facility on the South Coast to say goodbye to your loyal friend in your own time. Our facility even has a viewing window into the cremation room, so you can be by your dog’s side until the very end.
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.
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.
