At Yadkin Valley Pet Funeral Services, we know that losing a pet is never easy, and we do our best to offer comfort and support through your grief. When dealing with the loss of a loved one, many people find mementos such as photos or urns to be a source of the comfort they need. Our team offers a range of beautiful pet urns to help you commemorate your beloved companion, but we also offer alternative options to those whose tastes run in a different direction. In this article, we’ll go over some of those alternatives to help you get a better sense of your options and choose what’s best for your family.
- Cremation Jewelry- One increasingly popular alternative to traditional pet urns is known as cremation jewelry. Put simply, this is a type of jewelry designed to let you keep a portion of your pet’s ashes close to you at all times–some options are essentially small containers into which the ashes can be placed, while other options incorporate the ashes into glass pendants or lab-created gemstones. If this option sounds like it would bring you comfort, our team at Yadkin Valley Pet Funeral Services can provide the selection you’re looking for.
- Plant a Tree- Another option for commemorating your pet is to plant a tree in their honor. You can choose to bury your pet or their ashes, then plant a tree on that spot. Caring for the tree and watching it grow year after year is a good way to feel close to your animal companion and keep their memory alive in your heart. We at Yadkin Valley Pet Funeral Services offer specialized kits to help your memorial tree thrive.
- Scatter Their Ashes- Our last alternative to pet urns is not a new product, but a similarly established tradition. Namely, you may want to consider scattering your pet’s ashes in a location that was special to you both. Most parks will allow you to scatter ashes as long as you ask first and choose a location away from crowds, so it’s an idea that’s worth looking into if you want to remember your pet enjoying their favorite place.
