I am just emailing to say a huge thank you to all your staff that took care of our beloved pet and her cremation and delivery of her ashes today. I would also like to thank you for your kidness and compassion in my time of grieving. Through all the worries I had at the time you allowed me to take my time which took a huge weight off my shoulders when I needed it most. Thank you again.
Step By Step Guide To Pet Cremation
Losing a pet is a difficult time, and not knowing the process of what happens during the cremation process can make it even more upsetting. With understanding the process and knowing what options you have; you’ll be able to make a more informed decision through your grieving time. Here are the steps of pet cremation.
Step 1: Collecting Your Pet
If your pet has passed away at your vet, they will be able to give you the information about contacting a pet cremation centre. Whether the pet has passed away from an emergency or scheduled euthanasia, our caring staff will be able to guide you through their process of collecting your pet.
If your pet has passed away at your home, the same process applies, and our professional staff will be able to come to your home immediately.
Step 2: What Do I Need To Do?
Once your pet has been collected, the staff at our Gold Coast pet crematorium welcome you to be involved in the process as much or as little as you like. They will guide you through the process, and you can expect to be able to collect the ashes of your pet within 72 hours in normal circumstances. This time frame allows for the collection, the cremation, the cooling, the processing and placement in the selected urn and/or keepsake.
Step 3: Group or Individual Pet Cremation
Choose what type of cremation. You will be given a choice of either group or individual cremations. You’ll need to decide if you want your pet cremated with other animals at the same time, or on their own.
If you decided on a group cremation, there is no guarantee the ashes you received will only be of your pet. Individual cremations ensure the ashes you receive are only from your pet, and they are safely returned to you. At Pet Haven, we specialise in individual pet cremation
Step 4: Special Requests
If you’ve decided on an individual cremation, you can also have special requests granted. This could be something like removing something from your pet such as a special collar, a lock of hair for a keepsake, or even requesting a paw print of your pet to have framed later. Our team will not charge for this additional service. We welcome you to discuss any queries and/or concerns you may have.
Step 5: Pet Urns & Keepsakes
You may request to be onsite during the cremation, or you can be informed when the process is completed. Your pets’ ashes will go into a temporary urn until you have decided on the type of urn you’d like.
When picking an urn, you’ll need to take into consideration:
- The weight & size of your pet
- The design of your home or garden
- Where you want to place the urn
- Your budget
Step 6: Scattering Your Pets Ashes
Once you’ve taken home your pet’s ashes in your urn, you can decide with your family if you’d like to scatter the ashes, keep them in the urn for a later date or keep them permanently in the urn. Some ideas of where to scatter the ashes could be:
- Favourite bush trail
- Favourite beach or creek
- Favourite bush trail
- Favourite dog park
- Private gardens
- Your backyard
If you do decide on scattering ashes on private land, it is essential to get permission from the owner of private land or the Trust of Parks and Reserves or the location council for parks and beaches. The scattering of ashes may contravene the provisions of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 in terms of air or water pollution. Disposal of ashes without consent could result in legal proceedings. To ensure the scattering of your pet’s ashes is peaceful and trouble-free, get in touch with the landowner ahead of time.
If you decide you or someone in your family may need grief support during this time, several resources can assist. The team at Pet Haven are available for contact 24/7 at 1800 789 567, and we can send out professional staff to your home or your vet immediately.
