Our Prices

Price transparency is important for us! We know it is not always easy to compare pet cremation services to prevent being caught by a surprise invoice in the end. Therefore, we provide an overview of the costs of cremation, additional services and optional offers for you.

*the total weight will be calculated from the weight of your pet, the compulsory cremation bag and optional grave goods, like the favourite blanket or toy of your pet. The weighing in the pet crematory is decisive.

Important note: due to the massive increase in energy costs, the pet crematory has increased its prices for the 3rd time already this year. So far, we have absorbed the increase, but we now have to pass on at least part of it to you. Until further notice, we will therefore charge an energy surcharge of 15.00 € per pet.

Included in the cremation costs is a certificate of cremation. The price of the individual cremation includes the return of the ashes and the personal handing back to you at our office, too.
