DID YOU KNOW?

Pets grieve & some even bury their loved ones!​

  • Gorillas, dogs and elephants have been known to display grieving or mourning behavior & some even bury a deceased family member or mate
  • Magpies hold "funerals" where several of their own gather and distribute leaves over the body of the deceased​​
  • Dolphins have been observed to hold their deceased young for as long as 30 minutes before releasing the body into the water

We share so many fond memories with our pets, for so many of us, our pets are like family.  To honor our pets through memorialization when a loss has occurred helps us mourn the loss and provide an eternal resting place to visit and reflect.  Even some animal species are known to bury and mourn a loss of a deceased family member.  

Woodmere has a pet crematorium and several of our sister cemeteries provide separate areas devoted to pet interment.  

We provide several ways to memorialize your pet for eternity.  The following are just a few of the many ways we provide to inter your beloved pet's remains:  

  • Flush memorials in granite 
  • Cremation benches & monuments
  • Cremorials (flush memorials)
  • Niches within a columbarium in a private or community mausoleum
  • Urns

 Just as we pre-plan for ourselves, we recommend pre-planning for the inevitable for your pet(s) as well.  Click to set an appointment to pre-plan and pre-pay your pet's burial costs. 


NOTE: Pets may be interred via full body or cremains.  Pets are not permitted (by law) to be buried with owners or any other humans.
