Pet Funerals: From Dignified To Weird?

I think the pet funeral industry is the rising giant of the pet consumer market. And for a good reason. With the housing options limited and the attachment to pets rising, then old way of burying ‘Fluffy’ under the apple tree no longer applied.

That being said, some of these funeral options are a little on the cooky side:

“There are the expected high-ticket items, like bronze grave markers ($1,765) and velvet-lined caskets ($1,135). But there are also unconventional options, like freeze-drying and embalming. “My dad really perfected the art of embalming pets,” Shugart-Bethune says. Business has been so good that the operation recently moved to a two-floor, 8,000-square-foot building with enough room to accommodate multiple pet funerals.”

Do you really want ‘Fluffy’ turned into a life-like statue? I must say, that option is not for me.
