  • Creative Ways to Memorialize Your Lost Pet

    Pet deaths are always devastating, but memorializing your pet can help to ease some of the pain. Many people are comforted by finding ways to memorialize their pets to honor the special relationship they shared. In addition to pet burial or cremation at a pet cemetery and the use of granite pet markers, there are many creative ways you can memorialize your pet in a way that feels personal to you and your family.

    Keepsake Jewelry

    One way to keep your pet close to you is to choose keepsake jewelry. This type of jewelry allows you to carry a small portion of cremains or pet hair with you in a necklace, pin, or other jewelry item. Keepsake jewelry is unique and lets you always keep your special pet close to you, wherever you are. You can choose discrete jewelry that no one will know contains a memento of your pet but you, or you can opt for a piece that either has an animal theme in the design or that is engraved with your pet’s name.

    Decorative Accents

    If you choose to have your pet cremated, you aren’t limited to an urn if you choose to keep the cremains at home. Glass ornaments are just one example of the decorative pieces that can you can display at home that incorporate your pet’s cremains. You can even have a piece custom designed to commemorate your pet in truly unique and personal way.

    Memento Chest

    Keep a collection of your pet’s favorite items in a memento chest so you can pull them out any time you want to remember. Memento chests can be engraved with your pet’s name and come in different sizes to accommodate things like your pet’s favorite toys, his or her collar, favorite photos, and even an urn with your pet’s cremains.

  • Should You Choose Cremation for Your Pet?

    After the loss of a pet, individuals are sometimes unsure about how to proceed with the remains. In many cases, the best choices for people are either a pet cemetery burial or pet cremation. There are several reasons why pet owners frequently choose cremation over burial.

    Cremation is often less expensive than burying a pet in a cemetery plot. Additionally, this option allows the pet owner to scatter the ashes where they wish, or to keep the ashes in a pet urn. If you would like to scatter or keep your pet’s ashes, then you will need to select a private cremation. If you do not choose private cremation, then your pet will be cremated along with other pets, so the ashes cannot be returned to you.

  • What to Do if Your Pet Is Lost

    Despite their keen animal senses, it’s possible for pets to get disoriented and wander far from home. No matter the reason for their disappearance, it can feel as devastating as a pet’s death when your furry friend is lost. To help increase your chances of tracking down your pet, use these tips:

    Make posters to put around town.

    As soon as think that your pet could be lost, start the process of finding her by making posters. Keep your posters simple, use a large font, and make a decent amount of them so that you can post your lost pet signs throughout your neighborhood. Include a brief description of your pet, including her size, coloring, breed, and name. Also, offer a reward while not stating a specific amount and include your phone number.

    Talk to your neighbors.

    Even if you haven’t seen your pet in days , she could still be somewhere nearby. To increase the chance of you locating your lost dog or cat, speak with each of your neighbors individually. When doing so, pass out notecards or additional posters that include your contact information and a description of your pet.

    Call your pet’s name.

    Hearing your voice and her name can be enough to help her find her way back to your house. Dawn and dusk provide the best chances of your pet hearing you and of you spotting her, so use these hours to scour your area, either by foot, bike, or car, and slowly circle back over each location that you try.

    Check animal shelters and clinics.

    It’s not uncommon for lost pets to end up in local shelters and veterinary hospitals. Call clinics that are both local and out of your area. Also, it’s important to visit, rather than call, local pet shelters every day and look through the animals.
