How to choose pet cremation urns

Forever Loved Stone Angel Cremation Urn

When a pet dies, usually you have three choices.  You can either allow the vet to take care of the body, take it home to bury in your own chosen location, or have the pet cremated so that you have something to remember it by.  Many people choose the last option because it feels comforting to have something to remember their pet by in their home.  However, if this is the right choice for you then you will need to take an additional step and look at wholesale pet urns and choose a unique pet cremation urn in order to place the ashes in a notable structure.

The first thing you need to consider is the size of the cremation urn you have in mind.  For the most part, the size of the dog is not going to impact the size of an urn given the fact that ashes are still only minimal, but if you have a very large breed you may want to ask for advice.  This aside the size requirement is more dependent on where you plan to place the urn and overall what type of urn you would like to memorialize your pet.

Many people chose to purchase a personalized urn that may have a statue of the dog as the actual urn with a matching frame to hold a picture of your cherished pet.  The same type of pet cremation urns is also available to cat owners as well.  Some people choose a simple urn that is simply a statue that resembles their pet or that they have had commissioned to look like their pet from a picture.  The choice of style is completely up to what you feel will be appropriate.

Other considerations to keep in mind are if you want stone, glass, or wood keeping in mind that certain materials are required if you plan to place an engraving on the urn.  Many people choose an inspirational poem that represents the spirit of their pet while they were still alive.  The main focus of your search should be to find an urn that will allow the spirit of your pet to continue to shine through your home even after its passing.

    I bought an engraved brass urn for my cat. I engraved his name, date of birth and death, and a special Jorge Luis Borges poem i used to read for him. He would sit quietly on the bed, looking at me read, and i would start reading out loud. I could tell he loved it.

    No son más silenciosos los espejos
    ni más furtiva el alba aventurera;
    eres, bajo la luna, esa pantera
    que nos es dado divisar de lejos.
    Por obra indescifrable de un decreto
    divino, te buscamos vanamente;
    más remoto que el Ganges y el poniente,
    tuya es la soledad, tuyo el secreto.
    Tu lomo condesciende a la morosa
    caricia de mi mano. Has admitido,
    desde esa eternidad que ya es olvido,
    el amor de la mano recelosa.
    En otro tiempo estás. Eres el dueño
    de un ámbito cerrado como un sueño.

    We started making personalized pet urns because our neighbor had several plain wooden boxes that held the remains of her dear kitties.
    We made her a ceramic urn, with her cats photo on the front and she was so thrilled with it that we decided to start making them for others.
    We are HUGE animal lovers, and we love our pets deeply. We know how sad it is to lose a beloved pet.
