About Pet Urns
Pet urns offer a personal connection with a pet even after passing. Only an animal lover can understand the sadness of losing a pet. People tend to view their pets as part of the family, with personalities and charms as distinct as any playful child, eccentric aunt, or curmudgeonly grandfather. So, when a pet passes, the grief is often just as real and the sorrow as acute as if a human family member had passed away. Pet urns are one way to help deal with sorrow in the loss of a pet.
Like cremation urns for people, pet urns come in an assortment of designs, materials and sizes. Following are descriptions of some popular types of pet urns offered by Perfect Memorials.
