Paw Pods Provides Tips on Observing National Pet Memorial Day, September 14


Established by the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories (IAPC), National Pet Memorial Day is a day for which pet owners are

encouraged to celebrate the lives of their lost, beloved pets. Falling on the second Sunday in September every year, the day is an opportunity to help bring closure and remembrance to grieving pet parents.

Paw Pods would like to share some ways to help observe National Pet Memorial Day:

  • >>Take time to reflect, and share favorite memories you shared with your pet.
  • >>If you buried your pet, visit the site and think about happy times together.
  • >>Consider a donation in your lost pet's honor to an animal welfare, shelter or service group.
  • >>Find a unique way to memorialize your pet with a peaceful spot by planting a small flower garden or tree.

"Coping with the loss of a pet can feel, at times, impossible," said Ben Riggan, managing partner of Paw Pods. "A day like National Pet Memorial Day is a positive reminder to all of us that taking some time to remember a lost pet is therapeutic and healthy."

Paw Pods was founded in 2013, and offers 6 sizes of pet burial pods and 3 styles of urns each made from all-natural, biodegradable materials such as bamboo and rice husk. Their products are 100 percent eco-friendly, and can hold the smallest goldfish, to an extra large dog breed or a cremated pet's ashes.

Additionally, each pod and urn comes with a sympathy card and seeded leaf that can be planted with the beloved pet and will bloom beautiful wildflowers year-after-year as a living memorial. The sympathy card can be a cherished keepsake for the family.

Paw Pods range in price from $9.95 to $199.99 depending on size, and style, and three urn sizes (large, mini and heart shaped urns) range from $19.95 to $49.95. Paw Pods can be purchased online at
