For those of us located in the south-west of the country, and who wish to receive their pet's ashes back after cremation, be it to keep them in an urn or to scatter them in the pet's favourite place, I would like to recommend the services of Pets To Rest in Cordal, Castleisland, Co. Kerry. Over the years, Eddie has looked after four of our dogs and we think he provides an important service to the pet lovers' community.
You can choose to have your pet colleted from your vet, or your home, or drop it off at the crematorium yourself. You can then choose to have your pet cremated communally (with other pets, if you don't want the ashes back, which is cheaper), or individually (just your pet, if you do want the ashes back). Eddie returns the ashes to you in a scatter tube, or a durable urn made of wood or metal, bearing your pet's name, if you want to keep its ashes in your house. It takes approx. one week to have your pet's ashes returned to you.
