Pocket pet cremation

Under 2kg | $210.00

 

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.

Patch & Purr offer pocket pet cremations across New South Wales in Sydney, Central Coast, Southern Highlands and Blue Mountains.

 

For pets over 2kg, please book here. For horses, livestock, or animals over 100kg, please request a quote here.

The Pocket Pet cremation service is for pets up to 2kg, such as a small rabbit, budgerigar, mouse, small reptile, etc. Every pet that comes into our care is handled with the utmost respect and dignity and privately cremated. 
Each pet is provided with the Pet Tracker 360™ system, giving you peace of mind that the ashes returned home are of your pet, and only your pet.

Inclusions

  • Guaranteed private cremation
  • Our unique tracking system (Pet Tracker 360™)

  • Your beloved pet's ashes returned in a drawstring pouch

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. In this case, we will recommend one of our local vet partners you can take your loved one to, who will care for them until we can bring them into our care.

The pocket pet cremation process

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 and Lake Macquarie locations offer 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.

Why choose a pocket pet cremation?

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.
