Because every animal deserves a respectful passing
Passing Paws is the only pet cremation company to offer funeral services for pets. Funerals are an accepted part of the grieving process for humans and we believe that the same principles apply to the loss of a beloved pet. Losing a member of the family is heartbreaking and in some cases, traumatic. We need to allow our grief to surface so that we can be supported and begin the process of healing and acceptance. A funeral service allows family members to join together in a safe and appropriate place, and to show and share their feelings about their cherished pet. We want families to be able to get the closure they need and to remember their loved one in a way that best suits them.
A Celebration of Life
To assist families wishing to hold a funeral service or celebration of life for their pet, we offer a range of options that can be customised and tailored to your specific requirements. As a family business we embrace diversity. We understand and respect that different cultures may include traditions and rituals that give comfort and closure to families who have lost a loved one. At Passing Paws we work closely with families to ensure that arrangements are made according to your wishes and without stress, allowing you to focus on what’s important – your pet and your family.
The Process Explained
When your family gathers together to say farewell to your beloved pet, we will take the stress out of planning by collecting your pet from Passing Paws in a specially made casket, picking up flowers and transporting your pet to the family home in a luxury car.
Once there, we will allow you some private time with your pet in the back of the vehicle before escorting the cortege back to Passing Paws for your pet’s funeral. You are welcome to follow us in your own car or accompany your pet in our vehicle if you prefer.
Our Garden of Rest is often commented on by the families we care for as a calming and beautiful setting to farewell a much-loved member of the family. This privacy and comfort ensures this distressing time is made a little bit easier. From a simple candle lighting ceremony to a full funeral service with a celebrant, we will work with you every step of the way to perfect your pet’s final journey in the way they deserve
