How To Honour Your Beloved Pet With Their Final Resting Place


Your pets are as much a part of your family as children, parents, and grandparents which is why it’s so hard to say goodbye. They play an integral part in your life, becoming a much-loved and cherished family member. Losing them happens all too soon and the grief it brings can be overwhelming at times.

Just as you might honour a loved one when they pass, choosing a final resting place for your pet can help you remember them and keep their memory alive. It can also help you through the grieving process and come to terms with your loss.

Choosing The Right Location

When a pet dies it can leave you with a deep sense of loss, so it’s only natural you want to remember them and celebrate their life. When it comes to choosing a meaningful location for your pet’s final resting place, take your time. It could be a pet cemetery, your back garden, or any place that holds significance for you and your pet.

Choosing cremation is the most environmentally friendly option – you can then keep the ashes in a personalised pet urn in your home or scatter them in a special place. If you opt to bury your pet it’s important to make sure it’s done properly, or wildlife may dig up the remains causing you unnecessary distress. It’s also important to make sure that if you intend to spread your pet’s ashes or bury them in a public place that this is allowed.

Adding Personal Touches

Once you’ve decided upon the final resting place you can add personal effects to reflect the unique character of your pet. This could be flowers, plants, a headstone, or a memorial and may include their name, date of birth, date of death, and any memorable quote or special message you wish to be added. You could also add windchimes, stones, or artwork.

What To Do If You Don’t Have A Special Place

If you don’t have a garden or a favoured final resting place, giving money to a pet charity such as the Dog’s Trust can be a meaningful way of honouring their life. Not only do you mark their passing in a way that will have a positive impact, but you also help other animals who are less fortunate.

Personalised Frames

If you have chosen cremation, keeping the ashes in a special pet urn can be a way of keeping them near and protecting their memory too. A memorial frame can also be a fitting way to mark their passing and remember their life. Visit our pet range today or get in touch with one of our friendly team.
