Paw Pods would like to share some ways to help observe National Pet Memorial Day:
- >>Take time to reflect, and share favorite memories you shared with your pet.
- >>If you buried your pet, visit the site and think about happy times together.
- >>Consider a donation in your lost pet's honor to an animal welfare, shelter or service group.
- >>Find a unique way to memorialize your pet with a peaceful spot by planting a small flower garden or tree.
"Coping with the loss of a pet can feel, at times, impossible," said Ben Riggan, managing partner of Paw Pods. "A day like National Pet Memorial Day is a positive reminder to all of us that taking some time to remember a lost pet is therapeutic and healthy."
Paw Pods was founded in 2013, and offers 6 sizes of pet burial pods and 3 styles of urns each made from all-natural, biodegradable materials such as bamboo and rice husk. Their products are 100 percent eco-friendly, and can hold the smallest goldfish, to an extra large dog breed or a cremated pet's ashes.
Additionally, each pod and urn comes with a sympathy card and seeded leaf that can be planted with the beloved pet and will bloom beautiful wildflowers year-after-year as a living memorial. The sympathy card can be a cherished keepsake for the family.
Paw Pods range in price from $9.95 to $199.99 depending on size, and style, and three urn sizes (large, mini and heart shaped urns) range from $19.95 to $49.95. Paw Pods can be purchased online at PawPods.com.
