Our Mission

After a negative experience with a pet cremation service, I was left holding an urn containing ashes I could only trust were those of my beloved cat, Oakley-Bean. With my sense of peace shattered, I 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.

I established Angel Ashes in 2008 offering pet cremations and memorial products to help you honour the life of your pet.

Our Values

I have been an animal lover all my life – a strict vegetarian and then vegan from the age of 15 – and I always wanted to do something that would help animals. Now, not only do I get to do this every day, but I also get to help their people, too. 
 
I service the Adelaide community 7 days with a highly personal service that is specific to Angel Ashes. Every pet is treated as if it were my own and I am available directly to you for questions or just an understanding shoulder.

About Us

Angel Ashes is locally family owned, and operated here in Adelaide. My husband, Jason, and I run the business from Sheidow Park where we raise our family of children, dogs and cats.

Jason came to Angel Ashes in 2010. Also a passionate animal lover and vegan, he became the backbone of the company and helped it to grow and expand, increasing the amount of people who can benefit from being able to say goodbye to their pet in such a loving way. He spends most days as a stay-at-home-dad and working for Angel Ashes behind the scenes while I visit clients.

All proceeds stay here in South Australia, and help raise our children – both human and animal. At this time we support SA Dog Rescue with monthly donation.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beloved family member’s final journey. 

Warmest regards,
Mel Salter
