Pre-Need PlanningThe death of a pet brings with it a very difficult decision, one that you may not be prepared to handle if the loss is unexpected. Our Pre-Need Planning can ease the stress of those times.
We thoroughly understand the overwhelming grief experienced by many pet companion parents/families at the time of their loss. No one wants to think about losing their beloved pet companion. Should the passing come unexpectedly, or after a long illness, the death of a Beloved Companion may leave us feeling anguished and confused. Many of our pet companion parents/families have stated: “We wish we would have known about you sooner”.
Consider visiting our Pet Family Center to pre-plan for your pets’ burial or cremation to avoid having to make arrangements under duress. Pre-planning allows you to choose your pets’ burial site, casket, cremation choice, urn, and many other details before the need arises.
By pre-planning your pet companion’s needs, you are:
- Protecting your family from having to make difficult decisions during an emotional time.
- Making your choices ahead of time, thinking about all of your options. Whether you prefer burial or cremation, what types of services or memorial merchandise you prefer.
- Finalizing your pet companion’s cremation or burial pre-arrangements avoiding hastily made decisions and possibly later regrets.
What is involved in pre-need planning for pets?
Pre-need planning is similar to funeral pre-planning for humans. You make decisions about how you will handle your pet’s remains after he or she passes. You can determine if you want cremation or burial, and if you choose pet burial, you can choose the type of plot you want. You can also make decisions about things like urns, memorials, or other tributes you will want for your pet. Your plan can be very detailed, or you can simply make the basic decisions and choose to fill in the details when the time comes.
Why should I pre-plan for my pet’s needs?
The loss of a pet can be a very stressful time. Having to deal with making arrangements for your pet burial or cremation can be overwhelming in the midst of your grief, and you may make choices that you come to regret later. Pre-planning also helps you understand the costs associated with burial and cremation, so you can be prepared. With a plan in place, all you need to do is call the pet cemetery when the time comes, and the staff can implement your plan, so you can focus on your family’s loss and supporting each other.
