Guidelines for packing, addressing, and shipping Cremated Remains can be found in the Publication 139, How to Package and Ship Cremated Remains and on USPS.com
Since Priority Mail Express is the only way for customers to ship Cremated Remains, the Postal Service has a Cremated Remains Animal Kit to make it easier for customers to ship their pet or animal remains from one destination to another. The kit is free and includes a smaller version of the original Cremated Remains box printed with the words “Cremated Remains” in a bright orange color to increase visibility of the shipment. The animal box is designed to be used for the shipment of animal remains or remains of smaller portions. It is reinforced and sturdy enough to ensure the safety and security of the package during processing. Like the Human kit, the animal kit includes all the necessary items needed to bring peace of mind to the shipper that their irreplaceable shipment is safe and will arrive without incident.
The Kit 2 contains:
- 1 Priority Mail Express Cremated Remains Animal box
- 1 Roll of Priority Mail Express Tape
- 1 Roll of bubble cushioning
- 1 Self-Sealing Plastic Bag
- A copy of Publication 139, How to Package and Ship Cremated Remains
Each Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express shipment includes USPS Tracking®.
Made in the USA.
