Remember Your Pet with These Beautiful Keepsakes

Remembering a Friend

The passing of a beloved family pet is an incredibly emotional and difficult experience. If you choose to have your pet cremated, there are a number of beautiful keepsakes to help you remember your pet. Here are a few examples:

  • Memorial Urn

If you decide to store your pet’s ashes in an urn, you will have several options to customize the urn. If you select a traditional concave-shaped urn, for example, you can choose to engrave the name of your pet, a short epitaph, and a paw print or some other graphic that symbolizes your pet. Another option is an urn in the shape of a heart or oval, which also provides you with opportunities for inscription.

  • Teddy Bear

Another popular keepsake option for the storage of your pet’s ashes is the teddy bear cremation urn. Your pet’s cremated remains can be interned inside of a fluffy teddy bear whose clothes you can personalize in honor of your beloved pet.

  • Photo Frame

Go through photos of your pet, and choose a favorite that you would like to display on your pet’s urn. You can then meet with a cremation professional to take a look at the variety of photo-frame urns that are available to you.

  • Jewelry

Ideal for families with members living in different households or cities, choosing to store your pet’s ashes in jewelry capsules allows you to spread out your pet’s ashes. This way, several members of your family can carry the keepsake at any time. Pet cremation jewelry is available a variety of shapes, styles, and materials. Many pieces of jewelry with cremated remain capsules can also be engraved.
