While nothing can truly erase the pain of losing a beloved pet, memorializing your pet can help you cope with the grief. Below are just a few ways that bereaved pet owners can honor and celebrate the lives of their pets.
Create an Online Pet Memorial
Share your pet’s unique story online by creating a website to honor his or her life. A blog or tribute site allows bereaved pet owners to add to their tribute over time, and share thoughts and memories with dear friends and family.
Eternalize Your Pet’s Paw Print
At Paws, Whiskers & Wags, your pet crematory, we understand that our pets leave paw prints in our lives long after they’ve left us. For each pet, we create an individual paw print to memorialize the impression that these pets have left in the hearts of those that loved them.
Donate Your Time to an Animal Rescue Group in Your Pet’s Name
One of the best ways to honor your pet’s memory is to donate time or money to a local animal rescue shelter. In the Atlanta area, there are many pet rescue groups that rely on the love and compassion of local animal lovers to shelter and care for abandoned pets. Here are just a few of the animal rescue shelters in metro Atlanta and beyond:
- Furkids, Inc., Georgia’s largest no-kill animal shelter.
- Atlanta Pet Rescue, a no-kill shelter for cats and dogs.
- PAWS Atlanta, a no-kill shelter that offers pet wellness clinics.
- Atlanta Humane Society, an animal rescue center with locations in Atlanta and Alpharetta.
Choose a Unique Urn or Pet Memorial Keepsake
For pet parents who choose cremation, the selection of a unique urn can offer a way to celebrate and honor a beloved pet’s life. Paws, Whiskers & Wags, your pet crematory, features a selection of beautiful bronze, cloisonné, wood, marble, and cat and dog-specific urns for pet owners to choose from. If you wish to keep your pet’s memory closer to you, we also offer memorial keepsakes and jewelry that can hold a small portion of your pet’s cremains.
