4-23-18 VIP Pet Casket Pink or Blue size Medium We ordered this casket for our sweet baby fur daughter last Saturday- she passed away last Monday. We ordered it the Saturday before because we knew it was not long before she passed. This casket came in perfect condition and was absolutely wonderful. It was beautiful, well-made, sturdy, and beyond perfect for our darling little puppy angel. I was so proud of it. Thank you for the time and the thoughtfulness that you put into it- We do not have children and so our fur babies are our life. It was heartbreaking but your casket helped with some of the pain. I highly recommend. Love you all. Michelle

4-17-18 Deluxe Pink Medium Pet Casket I just have to say it is going to be very hard on me and my dear husband to see our little sweet 14 year old Yorkie pass on. She had been so very very ill the pass few months now and it is time to get her little body out of all this pain. It hurts so bad to let her go but it is best for her and I am sure she will understand some how. I have had five dogs and two cats and they are all buried and I was so happy to see y'all had a pink little casket just the perfect size for all the toys and balls and whatever she loved will fit inside with her little sweet chelsea. Thanks for having these great little caskets made for all the sweet little girl and boy dogs and cats out there. We will rest knowing she is in Gods hands and playing with all the other little puppies that have passed on. Rose and Eddie Sutherland

Pet Owners Have Options when a Pet Is Lost

My customers often ask me about options in burying their pets. Sometimes they aren't able to ask their Veterinarian so the pet owners are often confused about what to do. Typically when a pet passes away, there are 4 general options.

Cremation – a pet owner can choose either an individual or communal cremation. Most people choose the individual service, which is more expensive, but it ensures their pet's ashes are not mixed with those of another pet. The ashes are returned to the pet owner in typically 5-7 days and often in a decorative tin or basic urn. There is also communal cremation, where multiple pets are cremated at the same time. Ashes are typically not returned and are often spread over a garden or responsibly handled by the crematory.  Many pet crematories offer private viewings as well. Ask your Vet if this is something your interested in.


Country Burial - This may be called different things in different areas of the country but it’s basically when deceased pets are buried in a mass grave at an approved site. The Veterinarian will usually assist in taking the pet and working with the site owners to pickup the animal. This is a fairly economical option but may not sit well with most folks.  Due to impact on the environment, this is increasingly being phased out as an option but still may be offered in more rural parts of the country.

Burial at a Pet Cemetery – Most pet cemeteries I know do a nice job of setting the animal down and maintaining the plot so family and friends can visit. The cemetery will provide burial options including plot size, location and the type of caskets available. A good pet cemetery should take the time to go over all this information and not rush you through the process. Be aware that this is often the most expensive option. Fees for the plot and casket could range from several hundred to several thousand dollars and many pet cemeteries charge annual maintenance fees. You can visit the IAOPCC website (International Association Of Pet Cemeteries & Crematories) for a list of cemeteries in your area that are part of this organization at

Home Burial – Probably the most common and least expensive option. Pet owners often choose to keep their pets on their property. Many pets are simply set down wrapped in a favorite blanket or in a home made or purchased pet casket. Be aware that local cities and towns may have regulation against such burial so you may want to check with them first before choosing this option. There are many choices in burying at home, providing the greatest level of flexibility in how it’s done. This includes purchasing a wood or non-biodegradeable pet casket, having a burial marker made, planting a memorial garden, etc. It may be a better option when there are small children in the house as well. They can be more involved in the preparation, ceremony and care of the site. This can often help in the grieving process. There are many options for pet caskets. At
http://www.petsweloved.com/, we can help with many of these products.

Don’t hesitate to ask your Veterinarian to explain the current options when a pet has passed away. They have spent years caring for your pets and they should be just as much help when they pass on.
