  • Pet Cremation and Burial: What You Need to Know About Pre-Need Planning

    The days and weeks immediately following the loss of a beloved pet are often incredibly difficult for every member of the family, especially those left with the duty of honoring the pet. Thanks to pre-need planning services from your Fort Worth pet cemetery , it is possible to make arrangements for your four-legged friend while he or she is still alive and none of the chaos and sadness is fresh. Here is what you should know about pre-need planning for pet cremation and burial.

    what you need to know

    Your Cremation and Burial Options
    Although your pet may be well at the moment, you owe it to him or her to show gratitude when the time comes for all of the love that he or she brought into your life. Your Fort Worth pet cemetery professionals can share with you the various options available for both burial and cremation, which include ground burial with a casket and headstone, community cremation, or individual cremation.

    The Planning Process
    The pre-need planning process will vary depending on your election of pet cremation or pet burial services. If you choose to have your pet buried, your pet cemetery coordinator will show you available plots so that you can pick a final resting place for your pet. If you prefer to have your pet cremated, the next step will be to choose an urn that your pet’s ashes can be contained in.

    Ways to Include Family and Friends
    As your DFW pet cemetery professionals will share with you, any friends or family members are welcome for the pre-need planning consultations. It is important that all of those who love the pet and who are mature enough to understand the loss of an animal participate so that they will feel a sense of closure once the pet has passed.

    If pre-need planning is a service that you and your family are interested in, then come visit Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory . Our caring staff will help you learn more about the process and see to it that all of your requests are met. Call (817) 478-6696 to set up a meeting with us today.

  • How Long Do Pets Live?

    If you are like most pet owners, you want to know how long your beloved pet will be by your side. When it comes to a pet’s life expectancy, it depends on your dog’s or cat’s overall health, age, and breed. While indoor cats typically live around 12 years, some cats can live happy and healthy lives for 20 years or even longer. Small dogs actually tend to live longer than larger breeds, and toy dogs can live to be between 12 and 16 years old. In addition, mixed breed dogs generally live longer than purebred animals. To give your pet a long and fulfilling life, be sure to provide a healthy diet and sufficient exercise.

    If you have lost your pet, the compassionate staff at Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory is here for you during your time of need. We understand your need to celebrate the life of your pet. Whether you opt for burial or cremation, a memorial service is the first step in the healing process. Call our Dallas-Fort Worth location today at (682) 597-2324 to learn more about our services.

  • How You and Your Family Can Celebrate the Memory of Your Pet

    The loss of a pet is a difficult and emotional time, and pet owners need time to both grieve and properly honor the memory of their lost loved ones. While nothing can lessen the difficulty of this experience, many pet owners begin their paths to healing by celebrating the memory of their pets . Here is how you and your family can honor the memory of your deceased pet.

    Gather Together
    If you have lost a pet, you may simply want to be alone. But gathering your friends and family together to remember your pet is one of the best ways to honor your dog’s or cat’s memory. Many pet owners find solace in working with a pet cemetery planning their pets’ memorial services, entombment, burial, or cremation. Funeral homes also offer bronze and granite memorial markers so you can go visit your beloved pet at the cemetery.

    Remember Good Times
    Losing your pet can conjure feelings that are difficult to deal with. Just like with the loss of a family member or close friend, the loss of a pet can bring out feelings of sadness, anger, and loneliness. While the grieving process is important, it is just as vital to celebrate the unique and lasting bond between you and your pet by remembering the good times you had together.

    Retain Keepsakes
    One way to hold onto the best memories of your pet forever is to create a scrapbook. Many proud pet owners have hundreds of pictures of their dogs and cats beginning when they were just puppies or kittens and going all the way up through adulthood. By gathering your photos, you will have the chance to relive your pet’s happiest moments. Each time you look through your scrapbook, you can remember how your pet had a special place in your heart.
