The loss of a pet can be so painful. If you’ve lost an old friend, please accept our sympathies. Whether you plan to bury or cremate your pet, you can create a fitting memorial for your furry friend. Pet urns that honor the personality of your pet are available, as well as pet memorial stones that can be placed in a memorial garden or flower bed.
There are many types of pet urns on the market today. What you choose depends on your style and the kind of pet that died. Some of the more common cremation urns for pets include:
- Figurine Urns: One of the more popular types of pet urns, this type has a figurine of the type of pet you lost on top of a wooden box that holds the ashes. Many companies offer engraving on a brass nameplate on the urn as well.
- Digital Photo Urns: These are typically small wooden urns with a digital photo screen on the front. The urn holds the ashes, and you can upload your pet’s pictures and play them when you like.
- Rock Urns: Normally placed outdoors in a garden or under a tree, a rock urn is made from a durable granite mixture that typically stands up to the different weather elements. These come in various sizes, depending on the pet’s size.
- K-9 Cottage Urns: Shaped like a small dog house, this wooden urn not only holds your pooch’s ashes, but a picture as well. They typically come in one size but different colors of wood.
- Candle Urns: There are several types of candle urns, but they usually are a small or keepsake urn that serves as a candle holder.
- Life size Urns: These figurine urns are usually around the size of the pet that died and can include a food dish or even a doghouse! These urns can be placed indoors or out.
Displaying Your Pet Cremation Urn
Urns for pets can be displayed anywhere you want: The living room, bedroom, den, or even outside in a garden. Where ever you decide, just make sure it’s where you feel comfortable having it presented. Remember, if you have small children in the house, place the urn in a location out of their reach.
