Throughout the uncertain times ahead we will be continuing to take care of your beloved pets as part of the essential services for as long as we are able to safely operate.
We have however had to suspend our engraved urns and photo urn service due to those businesses temporarily closing (plain urns are still available). Although if you wish to order these, this is possible but you will need to be aware that you may not get your pets ashes back for some weeks.
Please stay safe and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. From Walter and Gemma
We at Furever Friends understand that your pets are part of your family and are your loved companions. Being pet owners ourselves we know that losing them can be difficult, upsetting and at times overwhelming. Our objective is to provide a professional, caring, personal and stress free pet cremation service for the after care of your beloved pet.
We are a local family owned and operated pet cremation service operating in and around the top of the south island. We offer individual cremations which eliminates any contamination or confusion between pets' ashes. Each pet has its own unique cremation log number that will follow your pet right through the cremation process from the vets or your home and back to you.
Every pets' ashes will be returned in a black cardboard urn, unless you wish to choose from our beautiful mahogany, pacific rimu and pine wood urn range that are hand crafted in New Zealand - these can be viewed in the Urns page.
If your pet passes away at home or you wish you take your pet home after being euthanized at the vets, we offer a same day home collection service and the ashes of your pet shall be hand delivered back to you within 7 days (This service is only available in Marlborough. For all other regions, cremation can be arranged through your local veterinary clinic).
We offer communal cremation for those who do not wish to receive their pets ashes back, these are then scattered around the beautiful grounds where our crematorium is located.
We additionally offer an engraving service which we can arrange for you to be done on all our wood urns. There are 2 engraving services - either printed plaque or laser engraving. We also offer photo plaques that can be placed on our urns.
Our pacific rimu urns have the option of a printed plaque or laser engraving at no extra cost to you. Both of these options can also be viewed in the Urns page.
We treat all pets with compassion, respect and dignity throughout the cremation process and are brought into our home until they are returned to you either at home or your vet clinic.
If you have any further queries please contact us or speak your local veterinary clinic.
