About Stone Memorials For Pets
Pet memorial stones are one of the most popular ways to honor a pet that has passed away. Whether you are looking for a stone plaque to hang on your wall, a customized garden stone, or a granite marker to indicate where a pet is buried, Perfect Memorials has a great selection of stone memorials for pets at affordable prices. Many of our stones include meaningful poems or sayings, including quotations from the famous Rainbow Bridge poem or a simple “Our Beloved Pet." You can also choose a personalized stone memorial that includes your pet's name and dates.
It's often difficult to say goodbye to a beloved pet, and a pet stone can give you a way to remember them with love. If your pet loved to play outside or nose around in the yard, there are a great selection of pet memorial garden stones that let you mark a special place outdoors. These stones are made to be exposed to the rain and sun, so you won't need to worry that they'll fade or be damaged as soon as you put them outside. It's not uncommon to bury a pet in the garden or yard, so you may want to choose a pet headstone or grave marker to mark the burial spot. These pet memorial stones not only honor your pet, but they also help ensure that the gravesite won't be accidentally disturbed.
Customized Pet Memorial Stones
In addition to the many standard stone memorials for pets, you can also find many personalized options. If you choose a personalized pet memorial stone that you intend to place outside, it's important to make sure that it's designed for outdoor use; some memorial stones with a place for a photo should only be used indoors. Many customized stones include a small plaque with the pet's name and dates inscribed, although some have space for a quote or short message. Stone pet urns that look like rocks are also available.
Caring for a Pet Memorial Stone
If your memorial stone is made to be used outdoors, then care should not be difficult. You may want to check the stone every so often to make sure that it's not excessively dirty or that nothing is growing on it. While these stones often have a protective coating, they can still wear down from constant exposure to snow and rain. If you notice that your stone is showing signs of wear, you may want to move it to a more protected location.
Pet memorial stones can be displayed indoors as well, where they typically only require regular dusting to keep them clean. It's always a good idea to keep any memorial in a location where it won't be subject to bumps or being knocked over. Stones that are made to hung on the wall should be attached firmly so there's less risk that it might fall and be damaged.
