Your veterinarian can provide information on funeral and memorial services in the area.
There are a number of ways to celebrate and memorialize your beloved pet. Whether you decide to hold a simple service, or want something more to celebrate the life of your animal companion, we are here to help you through this difficult time.
The goal of funeral and memorial services are to help pet owners along in the process of grieving for a beloved pet that has passed on.
We all wish our pets could live forever, but unfortunately there comes a time where we have to say goodbye. The grief process varies from person to person, however, many experts believe that holding some type of ceremony or ritual helps us cope with the loss of our treasured animal companions.
There’s no one size fits all to planning a funeral or memorial ceremony. Your ceremony can be as elaborate or as simple as you like it to be. However, there are some common elements that many people like to include in their services: Candle Lighting Ceremonies, Prayers and Blessings, Poems, Readings, Songs, Sharing of Memories, Memorial Photographs and Videos, and a Closing Goodbye.
Depending on your location, your ceremony options may vary. You may be able to hold a simple backyard ceremony at home, engage the services of a pet funeral home, or even a regular funeral home if there’s not a pet home near you. Services may include different burial options (burial, cremation, caskets, urns, and even grave markers).
