Burying Your Best Friend
Losing a beloved pet who has provided years of unconditional love and companionship is one of the hardest things any of us can face in life. When a pet dies, or is nearing death, our thoughts turn to how we can memorialize this pet that has meant so much to us. There will be questions about burial versus cremation, and what type of urn or marker is the most appropriate expression of our feelings.
Many people want to know if they can bury their pet in their yard. If you live in a rural area, this is a possibility. However, most city ordinances prohibit this. Before burying you pet on your property, please check with the appropriate local authorities about laws regulating this matter.
If you want to have a traditional burial for your cat or dog, a pet cemetery is a good option. Most major cities now have at least one pet cemetery operating there. Some of these cemeteries are memorial gardens that only allow burial of cremains, but most offer complete burial services for those who want to honor their best friend with a permanent resting place. Many pet cemeteries now offer a full service that is presided over by a minister.
