Rainbow Bridge Funeral Services


Rainbow Bridge Funeral Services

offers a simple, natural

pet funeral service,

tailored to your own needs.  


I have experienced the devastating loss of a pet so therefore I understand some of your grief.  This service has evolved through my losses and other life changing experiences .

Whether your pet has been or is being buried or cremated Rainbow Bridge Funeral Services can offer a non denominational, personalised, respectful and friendly memorial service in your own home,  whatever the species of animal.

When a pet dies, we’re often left with a devastating feeling of loss. There’s a giant pet-shaped hole in our heart, and if your pet was the only pet you had, the sound of the silence in your home can be deafening after they cross over.  If you have other pets, there will be a shift in the pet hierarchy. Submissive pets may become dominant and quiet pets may become more vocal as they re-establish their place in the home.  Pets can grieve just as we do for their lost companions even if they are of a different species.

Although your heart will hurt, you may like to recognize and mark your pet’s passing with a short service or by saying a few prayers as a way of bidding your animal companion farewell.

Adjustments, can be made to my service, based upon what sort of pet you had, the manner of their death, and your personal preferences.  I can offer a service in which all family members can participate.

I make no charge for this service but a donation is required to cover costs.

Coping with Loss

If you’ve lost your dog, cat or other animal – whether it was sudden and traumatic, or following a long illness – it can be hard to cope.

The most important thing to remember is that grief takes time. You will always miss your companion, but things will get better.  At first, there will be more bad days than good. Then, you will find that the bad and good days are even.  Soon, you will have fewer bad days, and it will be easier to focus on the happy memories with less sadness.

Sometimes you may see a sign that your pet has reached Rainbow Bridge safely.  A feather, a bird, a glimpse of something out of the corner of your eye, a certain smell …

If you wish to put their story and pictures on our Remembrances page we would be pleased to read them and there is also a link to a pet bereavement counsellor if you feel you are unable to move on from here.
