    Default Interesting Business Opportunity

    Now you would have to be an animal lover and a compassionate person without being a sop in order to run this business, but it is ultimately quite lucrative.

    The people who run the pet crematorium up here are thinking of selling up. They're getting older, there are health problems etc.

    I was down there yesterday to pay off a little more on the dogs and they were cremating - I always imagined it would stink - it just smelled like smoke.

    It would take a special sort of person to take on that sort of business I think

    Don't know if it would be the job for me. But someone needs to do it. I believe the right person needs compassion for both people and animals.

    I remember getting asked when going for a job with animals, do you like people?
    My answer was yes.
    Because they said, with animals comes people.

    Definitely. Someone who would be able to console people without being condescending. Someone who wouldn't go nuts after day after day of dealing with dead pets. I don't know if I could do it.

    actually very interesting ..... i wonder how you go about doing it though, the crematories.
    i have always considered getting an animal cremated, with burying , sometimes you move etc.

    its expensive though, right?

    It cost us $275 to cremate our Labrador last year. I guess that is quite expensive. Amongst all the other medical expenses at the time it didn't seem too much.

    Just wanted to add that they were wonderful though. They let us know when Holly had arrived there, from the vets. They told us exactly when she would be cremated so we would know when to think of her. And the delivered her ashes personally the next day. Included with her ashes was a card with a lovely poem in, Holly's paw print and you had the option of having some of her fur included - we chose not to do this.

    I have a clipping of hair from all dogs aside from Cappy - and that is the fault of the crematorium he went to - the one in Geelong - bastards!

    Anyway - this one - in Barnawartha - is brilliant

    The basically heat the dogs at a temperature that turns bone to ash - in this case it's in a shed away from the main house.

    It's cost me $1600 for all three dogs - but that including cremating two, boxes with laser images for three, jewellery for three so it is exxy
