​​​​​​Dignity in death for pets

Bangalore’s first pet crematorium ready
By Atul Chaturvedi, Bangalore Mirror Bureau | Oct 22, 2014, 04.00 AM IST

The city's first pet crematorium has been completed. And it was done so in record time, 15 months, at the cost of Rs2.35 crore. The crematorium is near Sumanahalli on Magadi Road. The crematorium will begin operations in November and makes Bangalore the third city in the country, after New Delhi and Mumbai, to have a crematorium for pets. Official said, "The crematorium has two incinerators, one for small pets like cats and dogs and a bigger one for large livestock. For the religiously inclined, the crematorium will offer a facility for rituals to be done to dispose of a pet's ashes."Per day, up to 20 animals can be cremated. Veterinary doctors will be stationed at the facility to conduct post-mortem on animals that die due to disease. The BBMP is yet to work out cremation costs but its officials say the fee would be less than what some private operators are charging.

According to sources, the cost would be less than Rs1,000, an official said.

Four years ago, BBMP proposed a crematorium on a five-acre plot in Medi Agrahara, Yelahanka. But the project didn't take off as the civic body failed to create an alternative road to the crematorium. However, the crematorium site at Sumanahalli is well connected. They also are preferred by many communities in Karnataka that cremate their dead and would also prefer to dispose of their pets similarly.
