The time when we have to say goodbye to one of our four legged family members is one of the most difficult that we all have to face. This page is only to offer suggestions in different ways you can remember your special friend.
Pet urns offer a personal connection with a pet even after passing. People tend to view their pets as part of the family, with personalities and charms as distinct as any playful child, eccentric aunt, or grandfather. So, when a pet dies, 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.
Pet urns come in an assortment of designs, materials and sizes. The following are descriptions of some types of pet urns offered:
Wood pet urns - Natural wood urns come in a variety of finishes, including maple, cherry, oak, mahogany, and walnut. From elegantly crafted classic shapes to dog houses, heart-shaped photo frames, and wooden trophy bases displaying animal figurines, wood pet urns convey a beautiful, rich warmth.
Stone pet urns - Alabaster, granite, marble, and onyx pet urns are available in an array of shapes and sizes, including classic vase, obelisk and monument styles as well as graceful angel, dolphin and dove figurines.
Metal pet urns - Bronze, brass, pewter, and copper are some of the metals used to make pet urns in all shapes and sizes. From traditional urn styles to a statue of St. Francis, metal pet urns feature finishes in polished and brushed metal as well as cloisonne, mother-of-pearl and enamel.
Ceramic pet urns - These delicate pet urns feature diverse, artistic imagery in designs limited only by the imagination-- from timeless urn shapes, to exquisite figurines, to a red fire hydrant with an engravable plate.
Cultured pet urns - Cultured pet urns are formed from manufactured substances, cold-cast and fashioned to look and feel like stone, ceramic, or other traditional materials. Cultured pet urns are available in traditional styles as well as in the shape of garden rocks and dog or cat figurines representing various breeds.
