Rabbit Cremation Options

Dog cremations and cat cremations are more widely known about. However, some people do not know that you can also have smaller animals, such as rabbits or guinea pigs cremated.

We offer two cremation services for rabbits and other small animals. If you want your pet’s ashes returned to you then you should opt for our individual cremation service. Alternatively, you can opt for communal cremation.

Costs for individually cremating rabbits and small pets

If price is a consideration when choosing a pet crematorium, you should be aware that many companies quote for just the cremation and then add on the cost of a casket or urn. The price is unlikely to include collection of your pet or the return of their ashes.

The most cost effective method of individual rabbit cremation is for you to bring your pet to us and wait for the ashes.

To provide you with a base line cost, our price for the individual cremation of a rabbit or small animal starts at £138.00, which includes a presentation box for the ashes. This price does not include collection or return of the ashes. To return your pet’s ashes we would apply a delivery charge; for a small pet, the delivery charge would be £13.74.
