3 Factors to Consider When Choosing an Urn for Your Pet

Dealing with the loss of a beloved pet is never easy and requires you to make important decisions while under a significant amount of distress. That’s why it’s so important for you to take advantage of the helpful services offered by your pet cemetery. Here are three factors that you should consider when choosing an urn for your pet:

counting to three

Where You Will Keep the Urn
Before choosing a material for your pet’s urn, decide where in your home you will be placing it. An urn placed in a room that receives a lot of foot traffic is susceptible to being bumped or knocked over. It is therefore important that you make sure that the urn is made from a durable material, such as metal or wood.

What Shape or Size You Prefer
Many urns can be customized to reflect your pet’s personality and unique character. The most popular material choice to use for a personalized urn is resin, since it can be easily sculpted to reflect different shapes. You will want to speak to your pet cemetery professionals about the proper dimensions necessary to accommodate your pet’s ashes.

Any Plans to Bury the Urn in the Future
If you have plans to one day bury your pet’s urn, you should choose a material that is biodegradable, such as ceramic. Ceramic urns give you the freedom to easily relocate your pet’s remains should you one day change your mind regarding his final resting place.

During your difficult time, you can trust Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory to give you the strength and support you need to say goodbye to your pet. We’re proud to serve pet owners throughout the Fort Worth area with our burial and cremation services. To find out how we can help you deal with the loss of a pet, call us at (817) 478-6696.

A Guide to Helping Your Child Deal with Pet Loss

While the loss of a pet is hard on the whole family, it can be especially difficult for children to try to understand and cope with the death of their favorite animal. By leaving the logistical planning for burial or cremation services to your pet cemetery, you have time to help your child heal the wounds caused by the departure of her pet. Here is a guide to helping your child deal with pet loss:

Assure Children That They’re Not to Blame
As your child pieces together the series of events that occurred preceding your pet’s death, she may feel that she could have done something to prevent it. This feeling of guilt is common and can be alleviated with a few simple words of reassurance that the child did nothing wrong.

Answer Any Questions Kids May Have
If your child is experiencing the loss of a pet for the first time, she is likely to have many questions concerning why the pet died and where he will go after his death. Be patient and compassionate when addressing her questions and concerns, and let her know that you are always available if she has more questions in the future.

Help Them to Say Goodbye with a Formal Service
One of the best ways to help your child say goodbye to her pet is with a service at a pet cemetery. Encourage your child to say a few words about her furry friend and remind her of all of the great times that they shared together. Formal services help bring closure, which is an important part of the grieving process.

What Exactly Can a Pet Cemetery Do For You and Your Family?

Cat and pup

During his/her lifetime, a pet becomes a member of the family and a dear friend. Coping with the loss of a pet after 5, 10, or 15 years of companionship can be very difficult, and adjusting to everyday life without that pet can take time. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by grief, you’ll find that a pet cemetery can perform a number of important services.  

Transferring Remains

You shouldn’t have to go through the painful experience of delivering your pet’s remains to a cemetery. A full-service pet cemetery can take your pet’s remains from your home or veterinarian’s office to our facility.

Cremation or Ground Burial

When arranging the interment of your pet’s remains, you can choose from a handful of different cremation and ground burial options. Meet with a representative of the pet cemetery to find out what these are and which one is best for you.

Entombment in a Mausoleum

If you’d rather not bury your pet’s remains, you can inter your pet in an attractive mausoleum niche. Many people find a mausoleum to be more appropriate for honoring their pets. 

Special Honor Pet Services

If your beloved animal friend was a seeing-eye dog, a K-9 police dog, or another kind of service animal, a reputable pet cemetery in your area may offer special honor pet services. At Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory, your service animal may be interred with no charge for the burial space.

Advanced Funeral Service Planning

If your pet is ailing and you have been advised to put him to sleep, you might consider making advanced pet burial or cremation arrangements. Doing so will afford you more time to grieve in your own way following his or her passing, and give you the peace of mind of knowing that all funeral services have been arranged.

Once your beloved pet passes away, you need all of the support you can get. For help organizing your pet’s burial services, contact Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory. If you have any questions about the above services, call (817) 478-6696.

How to Honor Your Lost Pet

The days following a beloved pet’s death are always extremely difficult. When the time comes to say goodbye to your companion, you might consider honoring his or her memory with a meaningful burial. Here are some thoughtful ways to honor and remember your beloved pet:

Two Dog Grave Stones

Cremate or Bury Your Pet
To honorably put your beloved pet’s remains to rest, you could arrange a professional burial or cremation. Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory offers these services, as well as an idyllic location for your pet’s interment.

Hold a Memorial Service
You might consider inviting family members and friends to participate in a memorial service, where you can share memories of the time you spent with your pet. A memorial service also allows you to embrace the support and care of others as you cope with your companion’s passing.

Create a Memorial Keepsake
After cremation, you could keep your beloved pet’s remains in a piece of jewelry or another type of keepsake. That way, you can carry your pet with you wherever you go and keep his memory near and dear.

Make a Donation in Your Pet’s Name
Though it’s sad to see a beloved pet go, you should take solace in the fact that your pet was well-loved. In order to honor your pet’s memory, you should aid less fortunate animals by donating to an animal care organization in your pet’s name.

Frame a Letter
Writing a letter to your pet allows you to remember the qualities you loved most about him or her. You can have your letter framed alongside a picture of the two, and reflect on your pet’s memory every time gaze upon it.

Have a Headstone Made
A pet cremation service provider may offer a variety of grave marker options to choose from. You could have an image of your pet engraved on the grave marker, and write a loving epitaph that serves as a reminder of what your pet meant to you.

If you are looking for a Dallas-area pet cemetery that offers a full range of pet cremation and burial services, Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory is here to help you through your difficult time. To speak with one of our compassionate and dedicated staff members, call (817) 478-6696.
