When a precious companion passes away it is hard to make the decision as to what to do next.

Here is some information on cremation that may help you:


Why Cremate

There are many reasons why we choose to have our beloved pet cremated over burial.

If you rent, have a small property, or are likely to move in the future, then consider having your pet cremated.

You may like to keep your pet’s remains on your property, but do not have a place to bury them, then cremation might be the best option for you. This way you can safety keep your pet at home with you.

Once your pet has been cremated it will be returned to you for burial, scattering or preserving.


Your Options

Once your much-loved pet has been cremated and returned to you there are a few options.


You may wish to bury your pet in their favourite garden, beside your other buried pets, or at a friend or family members place.

Scatter the ashes

You may wish to scatter your pet’s ashes in their own yard, over their preferred swimming hole, under their favourite tree, or just into the wind.

Pets Everafter are happy to personally scatter the ashes of your companion on your behalf if you are unable to.

Some say that scattering a pet’s ashes symbolises setting your pet free on their final journey.

Preserve the ashes

You might like to preserve your pet’s ashes by keeping them in one of our beautiful memorial urns and you may like to place a memorial stone in your pet’s favorite garden. Preserving your pet’s ashes rather than scattering or burying them is a way of keeping them with you even when you move house.

We have a wide range of products available including memorial beads, urns, memorial stones and memorial crosses.


The Process

Cremation is the process of exposing the remains to extreme heat, causing the body to be evaporated and reduce to skeletal remains or cremains.

These cremains are then processed further to reduce them to small fragments nearly resembling dust.

The cremains are then placed in a sealed bag.

They can then be packaged and labelled with your pet’s name, or placed in one of our beautiful memorial urns, scatter tubes or a container of your choosing and then returned to within a few days.
