Creating a Memorial for a Lost Pet

In a society where pets are highly valued members of the family, seeing them pass on is often difficult and painful. However, taking the time and making the effort to create a lasting memorial to the animals you have loved is an excellent way to ensure the memory of your special pet is never lost.

Physical Memorials

Honoring the memory of a lost pet is an important part of healing for the humans who loved and cared for the animal. Many families opt to bury or cremate a pet and mark the spot with an engraved stone, much like we do when humans pass on. Others take a somewhat different approach after cremating a pet by displaying the ashes in their homes or having them turned into a diamond that can then be attached to a special piece of jewelry. Of course, there are many other options available for the physical remembrance of your pet, each as a unique as the animal that has recently passed.

Written Memorials

Magazines for pet owners, veterinarians and sometimes churches often provide spaces for the publication of written memorials for a pet lost to illness, accident or old age. Dog and cat memorials of this kind typically include photos, special memories of the animal and even poetry, making it a great option for those looking for an affordable or free way to honor their lost pet. Regardless of the style of the written memorial, it is an amazing way to remember the animal while helping the owner begin to heal from the loss of their beloved cat, dog or other pet.

Healing Begins with Remembering

While the loss of a pet is extremely painful, taking the time to create a special way to remember that furry family member is an incredible way to both honor the animal and begin the healing process. While many memorial choices are somewhat costly, there are plenty of other options available to those who are on a tight budget. Plan your memorial today to ensure that your beloved pet will be remembered.
