What do I do in the event that my pet dies?

After your pet has died, ideally it would be best for it to be placed into refrigeration.

In the event that refrigeration is not an option it would be best for it to be kept in a cool dry place such as a balcony, garden, or room with air conditioning, wrapped with a sheet or in a dry container.

After having contacted our management we will come to retrieve your deceased pet, or you may bring it directly to the cemetery.
