FAQ's

Our urns cater for pets weighing from 1kg up to 65kg’s and are suitable for holding the ashes of cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, mice, birds and small reptiles.

Determining the quantity of ash you will receive from the pet crematory is difficult as crematory service processes vary. A general guide is one cup per 9 kg’s. We freely exchange if you need a different size pet urn but it must be unused and returned in its original condition. Alternatively, we recommend that you buy the next size up if you are unsure.

To determine the appropriate pet urn volume capacity needed for a pet, the average guide is that 2.2 kilo of body weight (during a healthy state) = one cubic inch. For example, a 20 kg pet would require an urn with at least 44 cubic inches volume capacity for remains. This can vary slightly.

Size Volume Capacity (weight of pet)
Standard Urn: (vase style)
6” small 44 cubic” up to 20kg
7” medium 88 cubic” up to 44kg
8” large 140 cubic“ up to 65kg
Circular Urn: (jar style)
 small 30 cubic” up to 14kg
 medium 40 cubic” up to 17kg
largeFigurine Urn: (statue style) 85 cubic” up to 38 kg
medium 26 cubic” up to 12kg
large 35 cubic” up to 16kg

Keepsake Urn:

Keepsakes are designed to hold a token of your pet’s ashes to remember them by. Many people like to scatter their pet’s ashes in a special place and keep some as a memorial tribute to their beloved pet.

 

Example of Dog Breed Size (weight):

Toy dog breeds 4.5 kg’s or less
Small dog breeds 4.5 to 11.4 kg’s
Medium dog breeds 11.4 to 23 kg’s
Large dog breeds 23 to 34 kg’s
Very large dog breeds 34 kg’s plus

Cremation has become the standard in caring for a beloved pet that has passed. Our hope is to ease the process by offering a wide variety of pet memorial urns for a more personalized touch and help keep the memories alive forever.

All living organisms have life energy, cremation is a means to set it free.  Energy can never be destroyed, it can only change forms. Hence the explanation for releasing the spirit or soul by fire has been the practice for thousands of years in most human cultures.
