Saying the final goodbye to our beloved animal family members isn’t something any of us wants to think about, but having a caring, dignified, and reliable service makes all the difference.
Flaura Pets offers a compassionate and professional pet cremation service with collections from your home or veterinary practice.
We’re an environmentally conscious company, specialising in eco-friendly solutions. We offer a range of urn options, as well as ashes in glass – custom-made jewellery and tea light holders containing a sprinkling of your beloved pet’s ashes. Our basket urns are completely biodegradable and are hand-woven in willow, with a calico cotton liner inside. We also laser engrave a bamboo name plaque with your pet’s name and date of cremation thereon.
We were established in 2011 after a conversation I had with my veterinary practice whilst waiting for my own dog to be vaccinated. Once the idea’s seed had been planted, we started by approaching local veterinarians in Somerset West and have grown from there, providing our services to Cape Town, the Boland, Helderberg, Overstrand, Garden Route and West Coast areas. A decade later, we’re proud to have helped so many clients at such a difficult time in their lives.
Our offices are based in Somerset West, where we have a viewing room for clients wishing to have that last goodbye with their pet before the cremation takes place. We also offer coffins as an alternative to a bag so that your pet can have a completely dignified experience. We’re currently in the process of establishing our own pet crematorium, and, by October 2021, we’ll have a facility where you can witness the cremation process and await the ashes so as to give you reassurance and peace of mind that you are, in fact, receiving the correct ashes.
We know how important it is to our clients that they’re completely satisfied with our processes, and for this reason we operate in an open and transparent manner. Our facilities are always available for inspection, and we’ll go the extra mile to provide you with whatever reassurances you need.
For our veterinary clients we offer medical waste solutions and can take care of the disposal of all medical waste. We’re fully registered with the Western Cape Government and comply with all the protocols surrounding the collection, transportation and disposal of medical waste. We can also supply replacement containers for the various forms of medical waste.
We offer generous discounted rates for animal welfare organisations and would be happy to discuss our services with you. Flaura Pets has many satisfied customers and organisations willing to provide testimonials about our work. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and reliability, which are at the core of how we do things.
