Some of our fondest memories are the ones we make with our pets. When their time comes, it's only natural that we want to honour their legacy and the impact they had on our lives. Therefore, In this article we are going to help you decide which urn would be best suited for your beloved pet.

Why Choose a Cremation Urn for a Memorial?

The main inspiration for using a cremation urn is to pay respects to your dearly departed, becoming sentimental to you over time. Some people turn to their loved one's Urn in times of remembrance or contemplation, their presence providing a sense of repose and peace of mind during difficult times. Having a daily reminder of your Loved one’s positive impact on your life may inspire strength.

What type of urn should I pick?

We offer a wide range of pet urns at Urns For Angels, ranging from classic to modern designs, from permanent to biodegradable, and in an array of different materials. Below we are going to give you some ideas on what urn for ashes would be best suited to you and your pet.

Urns for Cats

An example of our biodegradable collection is our SandSphere Biodegradable Urn for Pets ashes.
