They may be tiny, but small pets can have big personalities. At Patch & Purr, we recognise that the bond with a small pet is strong. When they die, it's just as difficult as losing a cat or a dog.
Whether it’s a beloved reptile, a chatty bird or a fluffy rabbit, the loss of a small pet is never easy. The death of a small pet will not only affect the human family members, but other pets will undoubtedly grieve too.
Pet cremation is an important part of the grieving process for all family members, human and otherwise. You will take time to remember the small pet and the difference they made to your life. It’s also a positive way for children to say their final farewells to their little friend.
At Patch & Purr, even small pets are treated with the care and respect that they deserve. Unlike the traditional pet cremation procedure, your pet will be cremated alone. Our unique Pet Tracker 360 technology guarantees that you will receive the ashes of your pet and only your pet.
Our friendly team members will help you in every stage of your small pet’s cremation, from selecting the right pricing package to choosing an urn or scatter spot.
Our South Coast location offers a private and comfortable space to say your final goodbyes to your pet. There’s even a viewing window into the cremation room, which many people find comforting in the final moments.
Pet cremation is an increasingly popular choice for bereaved pet owners. Even small pets like birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles and rodents can be cremated. It’s up to you what you do with the small pet’s ashes.
For many years, families have opted for burying small pets. However, pet burial can become a problem when you move house or choose to carry out a spot of gardening. Pet cremation means you can say goodbye to your small pet in a respectful way.

If your pet passes away suddenly at home we will always endeavour to get to you as soon as we can, however there are times when we are just not able to get to you as quickly as we would like.
