Pet Cremation: Honouring Lost Pets

  • Sat, 11 May 2013 22:06:00 -0500

Pet cremation is one of the most effective ways for modern people to honor their lost pets. When you cremate pets, you get to keep them with you for the rest of your life. You don't have to worry about moving away, and you don't have to pay the high expense of purchasing burial plots.

 

In addition to cremation, though, you can ask your friends and relatives to honour your pet in other ways.

 

Making Charitable Donations

 

Ask people close to you to honor your pet by making donations to charities and non-profit organizations that contribute to animal welfare. Perhaps you adopted your dog from a specific rescue, so you would like everyone to send that organization some money. Maybe your cat died from an incurable disease, so you want everyone to contribute money to a research organization searching for a cure.

 

There are many ways to choose a charitable cause. Just think about how your pet affected the world and how you can give back.

 

Encourage Adoption Over Purchase

 

There are so many lost dogs, cats, and other animals in the world that no one needs to purchase pets from a breeder.

 

Use the loss of your pet to get everyone's attention, and make sure they understand that adoption is always the best choice for animals. If you adopted or rescued your pet, make sure everyone knows it. If they liked her, then they might change their mind about adopted animals.

 

Ask Friends to Contribute Their Time

 

Once you have found a fitting place for your pet's cremains, start letting people know that they could benefit the local animal population by volunteering at shelters. You can also organize volunteer efforts that bring several people together to work on one project for a local shelter.

 

If working directly with animals doesn't feel right, then organize a fundraising effort.

 

These actions will honor your lost pet's memory while making the world a better place for all animals.
