World Pet Memorial Day
June 9th is World Pet Memorial Day, an extra special day to take time to remember, honor, celebrate, and look back on our beloved pet(s) who have crossed over to the rainbow bridge.
I was 29 years old when I first experienced this, my German Shepherd Ranger, having him cremated and his ashes home with his family (where he’s supposed to be) made his passing a little easier.
There is a very special place you’ll want to know about.
They believe that pets should be treated just like family.
They offer many services, such as
- individual cremation, communal cremation
- funeral services
- private viewings
- burials in their pet cemetery that is located on their property
- special caskets for burial and markers to honor your pet
Their cemetery was actually started by a local minister. It’s a beautiful and peaceful area to go visit your departed pet,
They understand that any animal is family…
There are different funeral services offered with costs starting at $155. They work with both clients and local veterinarian offices in different situations that may arise with your pet. They do any and all pets from snakes and gerbils to dogs and cats because they understand any animal is a part of your family.
I spoke with Jim Burns Sr., owner and funeral director. I truly enjoyed our conversation that day. We laughed, shared stories of life and animals, and he was full of facts, history and information. He loves and takes pride in his business and he has such compassion for helping families during the hardest time that owners face with their pets. Their staff does everything they can to make it a little easier on your family. Burns Pets Remembered is located at 10101 Broadway Crown Point, In 46307 and can be reached at (219)-663-6750. Their website is: Burns Pet Remembered
Pets are family and at Burns that’s how you will be treated.
