How to Plan a Pet Funeral

What Are the Activities That Can Be Done During a Pet Funeral?

1. Sharing of memories– When a pet passes away, you can hold a simple ceremony where you and your family members and friends can share the memories of your pet. This activity can help you share your emotions and allow you to reminisce about all the good times you have spent with your beloved pet.

You can also use a guest book or cards that will allow everyone to write their thoughts and they can freely share their feelings even when they are not willing to share them out loud. This is a great way of honoring the great times that you shared with your pet so that the last impression you have of your pet is not a sad one.

2. Candle lighting ceremony – Lighting candles to commemorate the passing of your pet is also a great option to choose for a pet funeral as it can easily set the mood for the guests to reflect and it will allow everyone to reminisce the memories of the beloved pet that passed away.

You can set a specific area in your home where guests can light a candle to honor your beloved pet. The candle lighting ceremony can be performed while your guests share a treasured memory or two of your passed beloved pet. A simple prayer can be offered, a special song can be played, or a poem can also be recited during the ceremony.

Important tip: Do not allow small children near the candles. You can also use artificial candles that do not burn to avoid burning candles unattended which can cause accidents or injuries. Electric candles are a great option for this as they can be handled with little to no risk.

3. Pet memorial stones – When a pet passes away, you can opt for pet memorial stones that will honor the life that your pet has shared with you.
