We are a husband and wife team, based in Sheidow Park, South Australia.
After a negative experience
Our journey began in 2008
After a negative experience with a pet cremation service, Mel was left holding an urn containing ashes she could only trust were those of her beloved cat, Oakley-Bean. With her sense of peace shattered, she wanted to provide pet owners with the peace of mind and comfort that had been taken away from me, with a guarantee that you will receive all and only your pets ashes.
Melanie established Angel Ashes in 2008 offering pet cremations and memorial products to help you honour the life of your pet. We are on call 6 days a week for all the support you need.
Personal and supportive service
Only a family team can provide
Your pet will be collected from your home or vet and after an individual cremation, the ashes returned to you along with a memorial package to help you say goodbye with love.
With every pet we cremate, we always have our Oakley-Bean in the back of our minds, and therefore treat your family member as if they were our own. We’re long-time vegans and take great pride in being able to dignify the bond between animals and people with Angel Ashes.
Our support system
Helping owner’s grieve
Many of our clients expressed a need for some kind of emotional outlet where they can talk about how they are coping with their loss to people who are experiencing the same devastation. So in addition to Mel’s one-on-one support, we started a Pet Loss Support Group on Facebook, for our clients and their families who need to find others who understand exactly what they are feeling.
After all these years, we still get affected by the pets we see every day, yet helping the owner’s grieve and offering them a support system (something we never had) allows us to continue highly emotional work.
