There is nothing more painful than losing a pet. Not only is there the stress of losing our best friend, there is the worry about what to do with their remains. When we lost Tristan, and more recently, Ghost and Blackie, we could barely afford the cremation services, let alone purchase an urn in which to keep their cremains. At the time, our options were severely limited.

But recently, we were introduced to PawPods– a unique, biodegradable urn that helps you really cope with the loss of a pet in a way that won’t break the bank.

Paw Pods is committed to green practices and each urn is made from bamboo and rice husk, creating a completely biodegradable, eco-friendly burial pod. Their patent pending process uses all natural dyes, glues, and sealers.

Makes a Great Gift

Each urn comes with a flowering seeded sympathy card. Simply sign the card and offer as a gift to a friend or loved one who has lost their pet. It’s a beautiful tribute and a wonderful reminder that our pets never really leave us. The card, when placed on top of the urn during burial, results in beautiful wildflowers that last year after year.

The pods are large enough to contain your pets cremains and range in price from $19.95 to $149.95 depending on size and shape.  It’s a very dignified and affordable way to memorialize your pets.

Special Urn for Children's Goldfish

One of the urns that we really loved came in the shape of a fish. For children who have lost their beloved goldfish, this is a wonderful way to bury your finned friend and teach them respect in both life and death. It is a lovely reminder that there is a circle of life, and by returning our pets to the ground, we provide new life.
