    you cannot dispose of animals at the local tip around Melbourne, you pay the vet to do it as a special company has to pick it up and dispose of it at an approved site. Unless you have the space to bury it yourself, vet or cremation/burial service is the only way to go.

    Mate....i feel fore ya.

    I'd be getting him cremated...find a nice place Jack loves and on a windy day open that bag up and let him fly.

    It's easy to say...i know, i still have the bag closed. Cant bring myself to do it yet.

    Theres also pet cemetery's around here and there....but burial isnt a option for me. I just dont like it.

    Good luck mate...and i'm hoping this thread is all in vain.

    'mymatejack' - really really sorry to be reading this.

    You have been given most of the choices that are available from the comments above. There are Pet Cemeteries - which also could be an option.

    But - what do you want to do ?

    I am pleased that you are looking at options now and not leaving decision making to be made under very emotional and stressful times later on.

    I really like newfsie's idea of using someone's property. Do you know someone with a bit of land that could help you ?

    My last 2 pups I had cremated, and they now reside in their posh little wooden boxes in a bookcase in my computer room.

    Take care and look after yourselves !

    I like the idea of burying a dog under a fruit tree - make up for all the blood and bone she's eaten out of Mum's garden.

    For me - I was thinking I'd get cremated - mixed into a concrete pot or hollow brick mould and put out at sea for the fish to live in. Or a garden gnome...

    Jack is a beach baby, isn't he?
    Probably not legal to bury him there, but as Sean suggested
    releasing his ashes to the wind and ocean would be a peaceful sendoff.

    I hope he has another "ace" up his sleeve and gets through this. Hugs.

    So sorry to read this post. Hope Jack proves them wrong.
    We as a family buried all our past pets at my parents place. 3 dogs, 2 cats and two horses.
    The only bad thing about this is that my parents sold the house and now i can't go and see any of my deceased mates.
    They always marked the spot where they buried them with either a tree or statue and it saddens me to think that the new owners wouldn't know that. It also worries me that they may be accidently dug up.
    Also having moved from Queensland to Tasmania i can't pop out and see them anyway. I think when the time comes for my old girl i will definetaly be cremating her and keeping the ashes for the quiet times i just want to sit with her and feel like she's near me.

    Ring the council, they will have some arrangement in place. Where I am you are not supposed to bury them in your suburban yard.
    Any vet will dispose of a body for a cost. When I had my cat PTS the vet offered to. If he is suffering it may be the kind option.

    Rang the council this afternoon and they said there were no rules .. i.e you can just place the body in the general rubbish(not an option!) if you want, but that contradicts what nehkbet has said ... and i'm sure nekhbet would know. I grew up on a farm and all our pets were buried on the farm, general livestock was usually "cremated" on site.

    Thanks everyone for your kind messages

    Huge big hugs for Jack

    We buried our dogs in our back yard, then planted beautiful trees there...

    Sometimes - when it comes to councils - it's best not to ask. Especially not the receptionist. Highly unlikely that person will know all the bylaws. So the default answer is you can't do it. Whatever it is.

    I did ask the council about scattering ashes in council parks - apparently - that's fine. But if you want to get married in a council park - you need a permit and permission from council. Sigh.
