Pets

Whether you want a pet cremation urn for yourself or helping a friend to choose one, there are a variety of urns to choose from in the market. Urns a great way for a pet owner to hold the pet’s memories close to heart. Once the pet is cremated, the ashes are contained in the urn and placed wherever one pleases.

Several things need to be considered when selecting pet cremation urns.

  • Foremost consideration is the type of pet owned. Many urns in the shape of cat or dog toys, bones, balls etc. are available. The shape of the urn is a great way to remind the owner of the pet’s playfulness.
  • Vase urns are the ones that are made of brass, stone or marble. These can be customised with a writing on a metal band or with a photograph.
  • A lot of inexpensive urns are available too. Urns made up of clay and lesser quality materials are good to keep or gift to a friend on a recent pet loss.
  • The size of the animal plays an important part when buying an urn. Some animals weight less and so will the weight of their ashes. Larger pets would definitely need bigger urns.

A lot of online stores offer pet cremation urns in varied materials, price options, customisation options, colours, shapes etc. Some of them would even guide you with articles on their website on cremation process, whom to contact and how to purchase the urn.
