Although pet cremation has become the popular choice in recent years, many people prefer to give their animal a proper burial in the yard of their home. This is especially true for houses that have been in the family for a long time and will likely get passed down to the next generation. Some people are also fortunate enough to live in an area that has a pet cemetery. Either way, pet gravestones are a necessary component.
Do You Need Pet Gravestones?
There is not a written rule that requires pet gravestones for burials however, they are a beautiful way to honor the life of the animal. Here at Say it in Stones, we offer them in an array of shapes and sizes; some stand up while others are placed flat on the ground.
Most people who choose to bury their pets do so because they want to be able to visit them, just as they would a human family member or friend. It only makes sense to have a stone to mark the area where they rest.
