If you are unable to prearrange your pets funeral service, in cases such as accident or other unexpected death, many pet cemeteries do have financial arrangements and payment plans available. Taking advantage of these plans, if pre-need arrangements are not possible, prevents you from being forced to decide on your pets final resting place based solely on cost. Even if payment arrangements are not advertised, ask about them before assuming they are not available.
Do not be afraid to include your children in your pets funeral arrangements. Many times children have a particular idea about how they would like to see their pet memorialized, but may be concerned about upsetting you by discussing it. Let them know that you would like their input, but do not insist on it if they feel uncomfortable discussing it.
