    Pets' final resting places

    Mount Pleasant Pet Cremation Centre was the first to offer pet columbarium services here, having started it around 30 years ago. It has the capacity for 300 niches at its Whitley Road facility and another 1,000 at its new expansion in Mandai Pet Sanctuary.

    The Pets Cremation Centre has two columbaria, one at Pasir Ris Farmway 2 and another at Ubi Road 1. The former can hold more than 300 niches, while the latter can hold "a few thousands" as it can be expanded further, says Patrick Lim.

    The Pet Hotel was the other major player that offered columbarium services for pets, but it ceased its services last year and provides only cremation services now.
