At the heart of the Paws to Remember process, is green cremation (also sometimes referred to as bio cremation or water cremation). Utilising alkaline hydrolysis, the process is more like natural decomposition than any other method.
Gentle and Environmentally-Friendly Care after the passing of your pet.
We use a gentle water flow, alkalinity and warm water to accelerate our ecosystem's natural method of breaking down and decomposing organic matter.
Your pet is placed in an individual stainless steel container to ensure that your pet is processed individually.
A combination of 95% warm water and 5% alkali gently flows around the body.
This is a gentle option which mimics the natural process of decomposition.
Due to the gentle nature of the process, not as aggressive as fire cremation, more of your beloved pet's remains are retained and available to be returned to you.
You can choose a velvet bag, a scatter urn, an urn or a wooden box.
Due to the gentle nature 20% more of your pet is returned to you
Zero emissions of harmful greenhouse gasses
Leaves 1/10 of the carbon footprint of flame-based cremation
No group cremations - only your pets remains are returned to you
We are a Canberra based family of true pet lovers and completely understand the very strong bond that we humans create with our pets. They are part of the family not just 'a pet'. We currently have three dogs, two are 'rescues' and sadly at the moment no cats.
Once upon a time we would bury our pets in the back yard but were then upset when we moved and had to leave our beloved pets behind.
We moved on to having our pets cremated so that they could move with us. We love this idea.
Then we were introduced to the water cremation system. We found this to be a much gentler process with the added bonus that it is a natural gentle, environmentally friendly process.
As we understand the strong bond between you and your pet, we guarantee that your pet will be treated with the utmost care and respect. A a friend commented when we were telling her about the process
'it will be done with love'.
Your pet, and only your pet remains will be returned to you.
