How do you decide on a suitable urn?

Think first of how you will display the urn. There are several ways pet owners choose to use an urn to honor their departed cat or dog.

  • Display the Urn - You can place the urn wherever you feel like in your home; some people prefer to place them on bookshelves or fireplace mantles. Traditional materials such as wood, brass, or marble work well in this case.
  • Columbarium Service - This is a collection of small niches in a wall or structure to provide a permanent memorial. To determine what size urn is needed, you need to discern the size of the available niche or niches.
  • Miniature Urns or Cremation Jewelry - This is a good fit for a family who wants to share the ashes.
  • Scattering the Ashes A biodegradable material would be suitable for the urn in this case; it can be recycled afterward.
