Keepsake urns hold a small portion of a pet’s ashes. Keepsakes come in many styles and types so there will always be something that will perfectly suit your wishes for a lovely memento of your beloved pet.
Some are designed to keep close by you, as a comforting reminder of your beloved and much-missed pet. Keepsakes can also be a way for members of the pet’s family to share ashes between them as a remembrance. Some people who decide to scatter their pet’s ashes also like to keep a tiny amount to put into a keepsake.
Keepsakes can often be personalised with engraving, photos, paw-prints etc. Others can also hold belongings or mementos of the pet, such as their collar, name tag, a scrap of their favourite blanket, a lock of hair or fur etc.
It’s good to think about what you might wish to do with your pet’s ashes when they are returned to you. If you find you can’t decide right away, don’t feel pressured. It’s better to take your time and make the right choice for you.
