Losing a pet is devastating for your entire family. Working together to plan your pet’s burial can be cathartic. When you plan your pet’s burial together, everyone will have an opportunity to say goodbye and pay tribute in his or her own way. These tips will help you work together to decide how to bury your pet.
Discuss Burial and Cremation
Although pet burial is a good option for many families, you may also wish to consider cremation. There are a number of different factors to keep in mind as you make your choice, from your budget to the importance of having a specific burial space and marker you can visit at a pet cemetery. Younger children may not be able to understand these options, but teens may wish to be included in the decision making process.
Choose a Casket and Headstone
Typically, your pet cemetery will have a variety of options for caskets that you can choose from, including a number of sizes, colors, and design materials. Caskets are also available in a range of prices to suit different budgets. Personalized headstones are also available in a variety of colors, sizes, and designs. The entire family can work together to design a headstone that can serve as a tribute to your pet and the time you shared together.
Consider Pet Memorabilia
There are a number of memorabilia options you can choose to keep your pet close. You can opt for jewelry that has your pet’s paw print or custom paw print plates to display at home. Paw print memento chests are the perfect place to store beloved photos of your pet and toys or collars you wish to keep. Work as a family to choose memorabilia that is meaningful to you all, or allow each person to choose a memento that has personal meaning.
