Should I bury or cremate my pet?

Choosing between burying or cremating your pet depends on several practical and emotional factors. Some considerations include whether you own the property where you wish to bury your pet, local zoning regulations, the size of your pet and any issues involved with direct burial. You also need to consider how you feel about leaving your pet buried in a place where you may not always live, and the relative convenience and portability that cremation affords in comparison to ground burial.

Why might I choose pet cremation over burial?

Today’s society is far more urbanized and on the move. People move from one location to another much more frequently than in years past, due to job changes, economic issues, and other factors. For these reasons, when a pet dies, burial may not always be practical. For many pet parents, cremation may be the only available option.
