The Living Urn® for Pets

The Living Urn for Pets gives families the ability to grow a beautiful and enduring living tree memorial for their beloved pets. This patented pet bio urn and planting system comes with everything you need to grow a memorial and includes a special bio urn, a proprietary soil additive, wood chips, and detailed planting instructions – all of which come packaged in an attractive bamboo cylinder case. The Living Urn offers over fifty tree options from its award-winning nursery broken down by zip code to the ones that grow best in each area. These trees come 2-4’ in height and are delivered directly to your doorstep on a date of your choosing, fresh and ready to plant with The Living Urn for Pets!

Eco Scattering Urn for Pets

An alternative option that’s growing in popularity is the Eco Scattering Urn for Pets. This special urn is made entirely from bamboo – an eco-friendly material. It has a long cylindrical design (which helps keep the ashes away from the person scattering). The urn comes with a unique open and close mechanism on top that helps you scatter with control and secures the ashes in place during transport. This special scattering urn for pets is available in two sizes – a small for pets up to 50 lbs. ($49) and large for pets up to 100 lbs. ($59).

Eco Water Urn for Pets

If you’re looking to scatter your pet’s ashes in a body of water, another option is to use the Eco Water Urn for Pets. This special urn floats in the water like a buoy for a short amount of time before gracefully scattering a pet’s ashes from the bottom part of the urn and into the water. The water urn comes packaged in a bamboo cylinder container, an attractive case that also helps to securely transport the urn and your pet’s ashes to the scattering location.

Whether you prefer The Living Urn®, Eco Water Urn, or an Eco Scattering Urn, each comes with the ability to have your dog’s name, dates of birth and death, and a sentiment laser engraved on the urn or its bamboo casing! There are several engraving options.

The Living Urn Indoors/Patio for Pets

The Living Urn® Indoors / Patio for Pets is made from high-quality porcelain and comes in three colors – white pearl, celadon blue, and sunshine yellow. It can be used to grow a bonsai tree or houseplant from the center of the urn indoors or on the patio. Alternatively, the center of the urn can serve as a vase to place cut flowers, providing an array of colors to your home year-round.

The Living Planter for Pets

The Living Planter was designed by an artist committed to providing dignified memorials for our beloved pets. This special indoor cremation urn is handcrafted from premium rescued California Sycamore and FSC Certified Black Walnut with smooth surfaces displaying the grains and natural beauty of the wood. It includes a ceramic pot on top that holds a small succulent or other plant. Rare earth magnets are embedded in the wood to hold the urn together and give it a dignified, finished look.

Living Glass Hearts for Pets

With the Living Glass Hearts for Pets, you can create a one-of-a-kind keepsake by infusing your beloved pet’s ashes with glass. A skilled glass blower will start by taking the molten hot glass and adding a color of your choice – lily green, ocean blue, or peaceful sunset. While in this liquid state, your pet’s ashes are lovingly infused with the design. The hot temperatures burn the carbon from the ashes, which results in a stunningly brilliant white streak. This special memorial can be placed in a prominent place, such as a mantel, bookcase, windowsill, or desktop.

Custom Pet Cremation Pendant

Another beautiful way to honor your pet is through cremation jewelry. The Custom Pet Cremation Pendant allows you to hold a small portion of your pet's ashes, soil from the burial site, or soil or water from the scattering site in a small glass vial. That vial is lovingly secured within an elegant stainless steel vial, which can be customized in a number of ways. Engrave your pet’s name, birth and death dates, and either a short sentiment or their resting place coordinates. With its 30” beaded chain, you can keep your beloved pet close to your heart wherever you go.
