How to Look for Pets Urns and Memorials

Pet lovers always want nothing but the best for their pets. And even after their passing, these people always go out of their way to find the best resting places for these special members of the family. One of the best ways that they can lay them to rest is through pet runs and memorials.

If you go out looking for urns and memorials today, you’ll actually find a lot of choices in stores. One of the very first and the most important factor that you need to keep in mind is the cost. Although there are a number of relatively inexpensive memorial urns available today, some of these items may not have the same kind of craftsmanship as the other pricier products. But remember, there are plenty of beautiful and top quality urns that are not that expensive at all. It all boils down to finding the right store that can give items at bargain prices. So be ready to invest some time in shopping.

Another very important factor that you need to keep in mind is the size of the urn. Pet urns and memorials now come in various sizes and shapes. Some are made for different kinds of animals, some even for different breeds. For instance, there are pet memorials that are made especially for cats or for dogs. So if your pet is relatively large or small, make sure to keep this in mind as you shop.

After setting your budget and the urn dimensions, you can now start deciding on the style and material to use for your pet urns and memorials. Luckily for you, there are many kinds and styles available as well.

One of the newest kinds of memorial urns today is the figurine urns. The design usually has a small figurine of a certain animal breed perched on top of a rectangular urn. This is now a very popular choice with pet owners because it allows them to customize the urn by making real-life figurines of their pets.

One other very popular material used for pet urns is wood. Wood gives memorial urns a sense of warmth with its natural colors and textures. Wood is also very durable and a very versatile material that can make perfect display items. However, if you do not like wood, there are natural stone urns available as well.

For those of you who plan to scatter your pet’s remains, you can opt to get a smaller keepsake urn which allows you to keep just a small amount of the ash to remember your pet by.

There are many places that you can go to buy pet urns and memorials. But for wider variety and more choices, the best place to shop is online. If you want to have your urns customized, there are some online stores that can do this for you as well.

If you do plan to buy pet urns and memorials online, make sure that you get them from legitimate and reputable retailers that deliver the product as promised. Aside from that, it would be an added plus to purchase items that have good return and exchange policies in case you want the item replaced.

What to Look For When Choosing a Pet Urn

Cremation is a common choice when it comes to deciding what to do with the remains of your pet. Many pet owners are still reeling from their loss and looking for a way to memorialize their pet through the storing and/or distribution of the ashes. However, a pet urn is the best way for pet owners to store the remains of their pets in a manner that is creative and tasteful.

However, how do you know where to go to find a pet urn and furthermore, when you do locate a retailer, how do you know which one to choose? In the midst of your grief, coming up with the answers to these questions can be challenging and somewhat frustrating.

These days, the process is easier than ever before. The place to go find a pet urn is through an online retailer. Choose one that specializes in pet urns and can provide virtual assistance in finding the best one for you. A reputable retailer will have a variety of sizes and colors from which you can choose, so pick one that not only reflects the décor of the place you will sit it, but also the personality of your pet.

The size determination will depend on the size of your pet and the resulting ashes from the cremation process. You can consult with the crematorium that cremated your pet to find out what the best size will be for your pet urn, but the standard measure to start from is 1 cubic inch of space for each pound of live weight when your animal died.

Once you determine the size, then it’s time to wade through the variety of colors and styles to find the one that best represents your pet’s personality. If your pet was serious and quiet, then you might choose a pet urn that is simple and austere. If your pet was crazy and full of life, choose a urn that is more colorful and bright. The choices are yours, but remember that when you display your pet urn, you may often be asked to talk about your pet, so you might want to choose something that is in line with the type of personality displayed by your pet.

Don’t spend more than your budget allows on your pet urn, either, as it is not necessarily about the type of urn in which you display your pet as it is about telling your family and friends and visitors the impact your pet has had on your life. Keep this mind when choosing a pet urn; pick the one that represents your pet for the price you can afford.

As you grieve, just remember that all of the steps you take to honor your pet through pet memorials are ways to assuage your grief and help you get through this rough time. With this in mind, remember that a pet urn is a representation of your pet’s life, but it is up to you to keep the memory of your pet alive.
