Pets are often viewed as key members of the family or trusted confidants. Pet memorials and mementos have existed for centuries as a means of commemorating these furry or feathery family members. These small ash containers are popular with anyone who wishes to keep a small, portable reminder of a pet and all the memories you shared.
What are urns for pets?
Pet urns are small receptacles that hold a nominal portion of a pet’s ashes or personal items, including locks of fur, a collar, a leash, or a favorite chew toy. Our collection of pet memorials provides a special way for sharing a memento with other family members and friends. These keepsakes come in a wide variety of colors, designs, and shapes.
Urns for pets are designed to hold a few cubic inches of cremated ash. Compartments for ashes can hold between 25 to 145 cubic inches on average. Our urns are available in five different sizes to accommodate all breeds and weights, ranging from extra-small to extra-large. Small pet urns are most often made to complement a larger urn or collection of various urn sizes. Some keepsakes are designed to resemble miniature cremation urns. Due to their smaller size, miniature urns are ideal for sharing a portion of a pet’s ashes or memorializing in several locations.
The popularity of pet memorials is due, in part, to a family’s desire to celebrate all the loving years they had with their bird, cat, dog, guinea pig, or rabbit. Although keepsake urns are designed to hold cremated ashes, some choose to preserve hair, flower petals, or dirt from an ash scattering or a memorial ceremony.
In addition to traditional urns, we also offer pet cremation jewelry as one way to keep a treasured companion close. Our biodegradable urns for pets offer a sustainable and eco-friendly way to honor your cherished companion. These urns break down in soil or water and are made of nontoxic materials.
Personalizing a keepsake with a professionally etched engraving is one way to make a lasting memorial that can be appreciated for generations. Many of the urns in our collection can be personalized with an engraving to give it that extra sense of intimacy you desire.
