Australia has been recently having troubles with the burial space in the country, which is predicted to prove inadequate sometime around the 2050s. As such, there has been a shift in how Australians handle the cold truth of death, as people seek out new ways to respectfully mourn their dead and bury what remains of the dearly departed, looking through funeral urns in Perth and other places, and sparing no expense regardless of whether or not the dearly departed is a relative, or a pet.
It is truly a sign of the times in Australia, when a pet cremation service has managed to win the country’s 2017 Australian Small Business Champion Awards for Pet Services. The family-ownedEdenhills Pet Cremation managed to snag the award this year, showing that the Australian populace are now becoming more and more open minded to alternative methods of honouring their dead.
In the past, pet cremation was not popular; practically unknown, as most pet owners preferred to dispose of their pets’ remains on their backyards or on any of their property space. But as space in the country for burials shrinks, and as more Australians are now moving into apartments, pet burial is becoming less and less practical. The pet cremation industry was born from the need and demand to provide a proper way to dispose of the deceased companion animals whilst acknowledging the issues of space in the country. The industry has only been growing and evolving, becoming more professional as time passes; it might not be long until pet funeral urns in Perth become widespread.
Lance Stringer, owner of Edenhills Pet Cremations, made a statement, saying that he was glad that their team had been given the proper recognition in contributing to Edenhills’s development as a leader and hotspot in the pet industry. He credits his team and his vet staff for the success the business has experienced.
He adds that he has spoken to many practice managers, animal nurses and vets over the years, doing what he can to learn about the whole process, including the minor details, since he believes that, like cremating a human being, it’s important to take note of the little things.
Edenhills is one of the few pet crematoriums in Australia that provides entire horse cremation. The business also procured a new, M6 cremator, which allows for the simultaneous cremation of six individual pets.
