Buying Pet Urns - What to Consider

People often ask if they should consider buying an urn for their pet.  There are many things to consider when deciding on the perfect resting place for your beloved companion.  First, ask yourself the following questions to help make the decision that is right for you.

Do I:
  • plan to keep the cremains until they are one day buried with a loved one?
  • plan to keep the cremains until a "sibling" pet has passed away so they can be placed together?
  • plan to keep the cremains in my home indefinitely?
Once you have decided what to do, you will want to consider which urn to hold their cremains.
