A pet funeral ceremony is similar to that of a person. It can include all the same components such as tributes, poetry, readings, candle lighting, reflection, memorabilia and music. Ceremonies can involve the other family members as much or as little as required. This can be especially helpful for children who maybe experiencing a first painful loss of a loved one and seeking ways to come to terms with it.
Saying farewell in a meaningful way is very important, and losing a pet can be as devastating as losing a person. A ceremony is a chance to mourn your companion’s passing, and, significantly, celebrate your pet’s life. No matter how large or small your pet and no matter how long he/she was on this earth, they mean something uniquely special to you.
