Family festivities are not the same without a beloved pet's attendance. Many of pet parents would be comforted to know that their pets might attend their own funeral. Having the pet of the one who has passed at their funeral or memorial service brings the surviving friends and family comfort, as a pet represents a special part of their loved one’s life and happy memories.
Pets provide emotional comfort, which not only cuts through tension,
but also lowers anxiety at a funeral. Pets are especially comforting to
children and make a welcomed distraction to some of the more emotional moments
of the service.
A formally clothed pet shows respect for the deceased and his/her
surviving family. Although funeral attire is no longer limited to just
black, somber colors are generally considered more respectful than
flashy, bright colors. We offer a selection of dressy formal attire for cats and dogs. All outfits shown are funeral appropriate.
The goal of bringing a pet family member to the funeral or memorial is to
represent our animal companions, as they should be -- important members
of the human family.
