Pets have always been an essential part of our family. We have grown up and lived our lives with pets in our home and hearts. We have experienced the enjoyment, the friendship and the sorrow that this special relationship brings. Our desire to start Australian Pet Cremations grew from wanting to show our appreciation for the joy and happiness that our special companions brought into our lives.
We feel that each and every pet should be farewelled with the compassion, kindness and friendship they showed us. APC offers a caring, compassionate and professional service for those who have lost their special companions. That’s why we are committed to first-class service and maintain the highest professional standards in our work.

People choose cremation for many reasons. Some choose cremation so they can keep the ashes of their beloved pet with them at home. Your pet can stay with you at this home or the next. Others prefer to have the ashes prepared for scattering at a meaningful location.
We understand pets are family and therefore treat all pets with the utmost integrity. Pets have always been a special part of our lives and we treat each and every pet with same care you would treat a family member.
Each and every pet is cremated individually. Our staff are dedicated to providing professional and compassionate care to all animals placed in our trust. We perform each cremation ourselves at one of our own state of the art facilities, so you can be assured that cremation has been completed in a professional way.
A pet’s body is placed in the cremation chamber where, through heat and evaporation, the body is reduced to its basic elements and referred to as cremated remains or “ashes”.

We as a family want to sincerely thank you for the obvious care you took of Bailes. When we saw how you prepared his ashes for returning to us we knew that you had treated him in the way we always treated him, with great respect. The card enclosed with the beautiful poem helped ease our sorrow. We scattered his ashes at the base of a weeping maple. Like our Vet and his team we will recommend you to all our friends and family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
No words can ever express the depth of gratitude we most sincerely owe you. Your wise advice and gentle counsel helped make our hard decision easier. David in particular, would like to thank you for the care and compassion you showed his beloved buddy, he now lives in our hearts free and unburdened. You have touched our hearts.
