Burying a beloved pet at home can allow owners to remember them by planting a tree or establishing a commemorative garden in that special location at home.
Sunshine Coast Council allows burial of pets that have passed on private property. Their requirements are as follows:
- Must be buried so the pet is under a minimum of 30cm of compacted soil (we recommend at least 50cm)
- Must not cause any odour
- Must be at least 100m from any waterways
- Must not be buried in non-biodegradable coverings/plastic bags
For other regional councils you will need to find out your local obligations as not all councils will allow home burial of pets and may have other rules.
We can arrange a basic biodegradable covering for your pet with prior arrangement and there is no additional charge for this.
