Dogs’ lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you’re going to lose a dog, and there’s going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can’t support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There’s such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price. R.I.P mate you will be missed.

After our cat passed recently we contacted Resting Pets Cremations who were very helpful and thorough about what could and would happen. They were compassionate, thoughtful and understanding, highly recommended service. Thank you so much.

Thanks for the countless happy times, and fun adventures my Kia. I’ll miss you for the rest of my life.
In one of the worst times of my life, I felt like my Kia was in loving hands straight away. Very compassionate people, very beautiful and a lot of love has gone into this service

Thank you to Jonathan and Susan at resting pets in Moruya,


Hi Susan,
I’ve been meaning to write you since last Wednesday after I picked up Melvin.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I wasn’t expecting anything beyond his two beautiful boxes, but the postcards with his prints and hair, and the two lily pillie’s was a lovely thought and so, so appreciated.
Thank you so much for showing him the care and love he deserved.


Omg Susan,

Thank you thank you thank you.
What we have received is so caring and beautiful. I admit… I read
the testimonials for you guys and thought “yes, maybe for others this
cremation stuff is beautiful” but for me, I was of the opinion nothing
will bring back my fur baby or erase my pain.

Then Buzzy came home. So beautifully. The thought behind your service
was such an unexpected joy. I cried and cried when I got him back,
because the card, lilli pilli, And Buzz himself where obviously loved
and cared for. I have to say, when I spoke to you I thought wow, you sell
a great product…
and you do. But I can see your passion and love for what you do
shining every time I look at my little mate.

Thank you
Again and kindest regards,
Chay xxoo

We would just like to say thank you so much for the personal touch regarding the death of our cat, Missy.
We moved to Tathra from Melbourne 3 years ago with four pets, two dogs and two cats. They have now all moved on.
The previous cremation service was no where near up to your standard.
We have a beautiful Golden Retriever who we hope will be with us for a while.

Thanking you again
Best wishes
Anne and Ken

You are both such Beautiful caring souls. It’s not often in today’s world you get the Privilege and Pleasure to meet people like you both and I’m so thankful and grateful we did.

Everything you did for Gb is absolutely perfect and so beautiful and that I can never thank you enough for. You went above and beyond for her when we weren’t able to.  The love you showed to not only Gb but to our family will never be forgotten. Thank you so much again for all the love and support .

Love the Gapps Family xxxx

Gb I love you forever and will for the rest of time/life my littlest lady baby of mine. You showed me love like no one else and for that I thank you. You helped me through my darkest days and made the sun shine with your presence and loving eyes. You never judged me my sweet little Geebz. My diggity dog.

Your spirit and fight was so strong you never gave up you always held on.

You’re are forever embedded in my heart. There will never be a day we won’t be apart .Even though I feel I’m breaking I know its your paw prints scarring deep inside my heart and forever that is where they will stay, nothing will ever take them away. Until that special day we meet again.  I’ll dream and remember you this isn’t our end. I wish we could have stay together forever, but sadly we couldn’t you had to go, your time had come and that I know. If you could have stayed I know you would, but know now more then ever our spirits will never part and you’ll always hold a special place within my heart.   

I love you for ever and a day always will my little lady. Now rest my precious girl you’ll always be with me and that is a promise I’ll keep for eternity .Love you always and for ever Gb xx

My little Diggity dog                   Warmest love Yvette, Chris and the kids xxxx 💗💗💗


I recently lost my little best friend puss after almost 14 great years together I was a complete mess my partner organised to have her cremated so she could be with us forever, i felt so much comfort knowing my little girl was with such kind people we really appreciated your phone calls informing us that u where looking after puss, the plant was a beautiful touch and it’s growing strong.

Thank you

Joe and Darren

Mika you were a beautiful girl and very cheeky to boot. We have still not come to terms with you leaving and miss you everyday. You were a pleasure to raise and your soft personality won many hearts. Even though you had to go we were so happy that Resting Pets took such care on your final journey. They are special people who understand the important place losing a pet has in our hearts. Sleep well Mika girl and remember we love you.

My Heidi girl came to her new home at Woodford from the RSCPA Katoomba on the 22-12-2001.

Heidi was so tiny and cute the runt of the litter…and what a delight she was to the household, from 2001 to 2013 this was god country for my Heidi. The memories will never leave me. Her ears and tail were bigger than her; she was loved endlessly with an attitude.

Christmas 2013, Heidi moved south aged 13yrs, and this was her second home. Heidi loved Bermagui, the relaxing life. Now at the age of 17yrs Heidi had 5 yrs in this beautiful coastal town.

Christmas 2018 Heidi developed a tumour in the bladder. I knew the time was coming to an end soon for my Heidi girl…I was given a card RESTING PETS…This was going to be Heidi’s final journey. I spoke to Susan and wow…how professional, understanding and the warmth in Susan’s voice, I knew Heidi would be looked after.

On the 25-1-2019 Heidi took her last breathe and then we both met Susan. So compassionate, understanding and helpful. I think Susan felt my pain, my fur baby of 17years and 3months has gone to heaven. Heidi left her paw print in many people’s hearts, but mine will never leave me…I miss her quirky ways. Her eyes were so amazing, filled with love. Wow 17yrs 3mths for a cat is such an achievement, no other cat will replace my Heidi poo, love you forever my baby girl.RIP.
