While the concept of a pet funeral is relatively new, the value of holding a commemorative event to aid the healing process goes back to our most primitive roots. Whether you choose burial or cremation, your approach can be true to your views. The only right approach is the one that helps you and your family say farewell to your pet.
More frequently pet funeral homes and pet loss centers are helping families plan meaningful services. These funeral homes/centers are staffed by people who understand that pet loss may be just as painful as losing a human family member. They offer burial, cremation, and freeze-drying services, provide caskets, urns and grave markers designed especially for pets.

Is Your Pet’s Body Care Important to You?
For all the years that you shared your life with you pet, your secrets, movie night and even the bed. You were giving them respect, dignity and love. In death you should be asking how is my pet taken care of. As it our pets are put into bags, put into freezers, stacked on top one another, waiting for a truck route to come around for disposition of the body. Pet Parents leave with nothing and suffer alone. Most of the Vets and their techs are not comfortable with this, but it is the way it is.
Now you have an option in your pets aftercare: Paws To Angels gives back to our pets the love, respect and dignity they so deserve. Pets rest in caskets swaddled in blankets, they rest individually, and the transportation of your pet is with in one hour and transports to the center with no other pets. Our human companions receive such respect and dignity why shouldn’t our pets? They are family too.
Visitation with my pet after death, should I?
This is a way to help you move through your grief journey. When our human companions die we visit them. Visitations and Funerals are not for the deceased they are for the living. Let us remember the love, share in the memories.
Tell them we love them one more time, pet them, kiss them. Give us the chance to say goodbyes in a safe comfortable place.
To often car accidents happen, death occurs during surgeries, a disease has plagued the body and if only we had the chance to spend just another minute with them. This option is available to you now. For families some can struggle with this idea, but every family that has chosen to have visitation they are so glad they did. Paws To Angels offers this complimentary with using their services.
A Guide To Planning Ahead
You should consider preplanning for your pet’s aftercare, just as many people do for themselves. This saves precious energy and time just when you feel the most grief. Preplanning can also offer financial advantages. Also remember that, just as preplanning final arrangements is easier to accomplish before a loved one passes, the same is true for preplanning a service for a cherished pet.
” I’m like you, I don’t want to think, or talk, about the death of someone we love. But, as your Pet Loss Professional , it is my responsibility to make sure that I’m giving you all the resources that you need to be a good pet parent that I know you are. (request your free “Guide to Planning Ahead.”) This guide is a piece that will guide you in all those questions and things that you will need to think about on that fateful day.
Again, something we don’t like to think about, but much like thousands of people do in our area every year, its planning ahead for the inevitable.” Cherie
