Cremation Services

We do receive some requests for cremations as some pet owners prefer to take their pets ashes home with them. EarthPet does offer the cremation option for those clients who wish to receive a return of ashes. Please note that to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible, there will be no mass cremations available.

Return of Compost (ROC)

Similar to our return of ashes option from cremation, we now offer a return of compost option to pet owners who would like the compost their pet’s remains contributed to. The remains will be labelled and wrapped in a mesh covering which allows EarthPet to trace the compost at the end of our process. The remains are then placed into our bio-chamber on a bed of wood-shavings and will undergo the natural composting process. After the process has been completed, we will retrieve the compost that your pet specifically contributed to and return all of it to you, mixed and packaged in 3-layer brown paper bags. This compost can then be mixed with soil and used in whichever way you feel will honour your pet’s memory. EarthPet will provide the seeds of Bladder-nut, Black Monkey-Thorn or Wild Olive trees to pet owners upon request.

Please note – due to the nature of our process the return of your pet’s compost will take anywhere from 3 to 5 months. This is due to the fluctuating volumes in our bio-chambers as well as the length of time allowed for the decomposition process to take place.
