There are two types of cremation services available through our partner FurEver After Pet Cremation; Private and Individual. All pets are treated with love and dignity throughout their time in our care, regardless of your choice of service.
Private cremation: the service fee includes guaranteed private cremation, which means that only your pet is in the chamber. The private cremation service includes;
- a complimentary fur/feather clipping
- ink prints of both front feet/paws (where possible, subject to species)
If for any reason you do not wish us to take a fur/feather clipping, please let us know.
Ashes are returned in your choice of a simple silver tin with your pet’s name; a velvet bag with engraved name medallion; or an eco-burial box. Alternatively a range of urns, jewellery and other keepsakes are available to purchase for your pets ashes. We can also place ashes directly in an urn you provide. Ashes are sealed inside a bag to protect them from moisture and spillage. If you plan to scatter your pet’s ashes, please let us know, as we will prepare them accordingly.
Individual cremation: the service fee includes dignified individual cremation with your pet’s ashes scattered in the FurEver garden during a small ceremony we personally conduct. Individual cremation involves the placement of several pets in a shared chamber, but in a dignified manner. There is a small, unavoidable amount of cross-over of ashes between the pets, but all pets in the chamber are being scattered in the same location during the same ceremony. Mementos like fur clippings, ink prints, urns and jewellery can be purchased as additional options to this service. We offer this service to provide an affordable, dignified option for clients who do not wish to have their pets full ashes returned, but want them handled with love and care.
Yes, by arrangement. RIP work with FurEver After Pet Cremation, located in Melton, Victoria. There is an additional fee for viewings, as this requires special scheduling to accommodate. FurEver After offers options including a farewell viewing, being present when your pet is placed into their chamber and being present during the full process.
At this time it is not possible for clients to be in the same room as the cremation machine itself, due to safety policies and insurance. As FurEver After is a small, family operation, same day cremation cannot be guaranteed. Please contact RIP to discuss this option.
We are happy to work with you to coordinate the delivery of your pet to our Northcote based studio in Melbourne VIC. Alternatively we can discuss shipping options with you based on your location. Services are available to anyone anywhere in Australia and transport options will be discussed at the time of your enquiry.
A scattering service is included in individual cremation with ashes scattered in a small ceremony in the FurEver After gardens. This provides a dignified and loving alternative for clients not seeking return of ashes, but wishing for their pet to be treated with love and care, or as an alternative to burial.If you wish to scatter your pet’s ashes personally, private cremation includes the return of ashes to you, specially packaged for scattering. Please let us know you intend to scatter your pet’s ashes.
