Goodbye Good Boy pre-paid funeral service just for pets

When it was time to say goodbye to 12-year-old Labrador, Tess, it came as a total shock. James and his family accepted that Tess was slowing down in her later years, but they were financially and emotionally unprepared to say goodbye to their beloved companion.

“I couldn’t fault the good intentions of the veterinary staff guiding us through the process, but Tess’s end-of-life experience didn’t feel like an accurate reflection of the love and care we had provided throughout her life,” James said. 
“We wished we had the means to do things differently.”
James knew his experience wasn’t unique. He wanted an option that gave all pet owners the freedom to choose how they say goodbye to their pets, whenever the time comes.

“We consider our pets to be part of the family and we know that other pet owners feel the same way. When we lose a person we love, there are so many funeral options available including the option to pre-pay, but there are no services available to say goodbye to our beloved pets. That’s why we started Goodbye Good Boy,” he said.

James is a co-founder of Goodbye Good Boy, Australia’s first pre-paid funeral service just for pets. The pet end-of-life provider is independently owned and operated by pet lovers, for pet lovers.
“A pre-paid pet cremation gives dedicated owners an opportunity to say goodbye in a way that feels right by their beloved pet." 
"Pre-paying can also provide families with peace of mind, knowing they are prepared to say goodbye when the time comes,” he said.

The end-of-life experience often happens quickly, or in conjunction with other expensive veterinary bills or personal costs. Owners are usually unprepared emotionally and financially to choose how they say goodbye to their pet. Instead, Goodbye Good Boy provides a caring, affordable and loving way for owners to prepare a befitting farewell for their fur child.

“If your pet was to pass next month, next year, or in five years’ time - whenever the time comes - we are there to support owners and their animal companion,” James said.

How a pre-paid pet cremation works

A pre-paid pet cremation with Goodbye Good Boy gives dedicated owners the freedom to pay in small monthly or fortnightly instalments. All pre-paid service funds are held in a separate financial facility, meaning owners are protected by a 100 percent money-back guarantee.

By pre-paying your pet’s cremation, you also lock in the price of your service and Goodbye Good Boy guarantees you will never pay more than your agreed amount, no matter when the service is needed.

When your pet passes, all you need to do is make a phone call and your dedicated arranger will take care of everything.

What does a pre-paid pet end-of-life service include?

“Most importantly we believe every pet is unique and we tailor our service to the owners wishes. Some may choose to have their pet cremated with the pet’s favourite toy or in their blanket, and we support them in that,” James said.

The pet cremation service includes transferring your pet from your home or chosen veterinary clinic within four hours. All services include a guaranteed individual cremation, updates at every step your pet is in their care, one-on-one grief counselling and ashes hand-delivered in a personalised memorial box.

A Cremation Memorial Service costs just $37 per month, for 12 monthly payments. It includes collection from your home or veterinary clinic, dedicated end-of-life arranger, pawprint and lock of fur, digital memorial portrait, one-on-one grief counselling and ashes hand-delivered to you in a personalised memorial hamper.
