For Your Information:
We understand that the years shared with a pet are full of endless joy, enchantment and unconditional love. Because of this love, the inevitable death of a pet is painful. Responding to the death of a pet in a meaningful manner is the best way of commemorating its life. Our selection of remembrance products includes an extensive line of cremation urns crafted in a variety of sizes and materials, specialized keepsake jewelry to hold a small portion of your pet's cremains, several styles of caskets and alternative containers for burial or cremation, grave markers, memorial plaques and an assortment of personalized engraving options.
Cremation is defined as the process in which a body is reduced to its basic elements in a short period of time using intense heat and evaporation. It is a means of preparing a body for final placement and memorialization.
Product Selection Guidelines
Volume capacities regarding the amount of cremains (ashes) are stated in cubic inches. To accurately determine the appropriate volume capacity required for an individual pet, please use this general guideline:
1 lb of Body Weight = 1 Cubic Inch of Volume
Thus, a 50 pound dog would require an urn with at least a 50 cubic inch volume capacity. Keepsakes are intended for use when a pet owner chooses to retain only a small portion of the pet's cremains (usually less than 10 cubic inches). Keepsake Jewelry is designed to be worn casually and usually holds less than 1 cubic inch of cremains (it is suggested to remove jewelry prior to sleep).
