What are Pet Urns in Australia?
For many years the only option for many pet owners was to bury their beloved pets in the backyard. If that wasn’t an option many pet owners likely had to allow the vet’s office to dispose of their pet.
In recent years, however, cremation of pets has become increasingly more popular among pet owners.
Cremation of our furry friends allows us to have more options of honouring our deceased companions.
Whether you want to keep your pet’s ashes on your fireplace mantel, in the garden or scatter most of their ashes, there is something out there that will meet your needs.
Pet urns give you as the surviving owner of your beloved pet one last way to honour him or her.
