You do not have to make the decision yourself, you can lean on us to help you make the best decision for your family. However, if you do want to be in charge of what happens to your pet’s body, there are home burial, pet cemetery burial, and cremation options for you to choose from. No matter what you decide upon, the right decision can only be made by you.

 

Cremating Your Pet.

In today’s society, cremation has become one of the more popular ways to handle a pet’s body. The process turns your pet’s remains into sand-like particles that can be secured in a small urn, keeping them close to you wherever you choose.

 

Can you bury your pet at home?

You must know the laws in your area before making a decision to bury your pet at home. If you choose to bury your beloved pet at home, you must put the body in a heavy-duty plastic bag and encase it in a secure box that is placed at least three feet deep into the ground.

 

This method will prevent any other animals from digging it up, and allows you to stay close to the site of your pet.

 

No matter what method you decide to go with, the memory of your pet will always be close to your heart.
