Burial & Cemetery FAQs

At the time of your loss the emotions of the moment can make it easy for you to misunderstand your options. Most clinics offer a burial option but you can’t be present and will never know where your pets’ final resting place is. Typically there are multiple pets buried in one grave in a farmers’ field.
I have pet insurance, does it cover burial?

Check with your policy provider, some plans cover aftercare cost and aftercare means final disposition of the body whether it be cremation or burial.

Do I need casket to bury my pet?

No, we allow natural burials or pet wrapped in cotton, wool or silk blanket.

Can I provide or build my own burial container?

You are welcome to provide or build a container for your pet. The container must be 100% biodegradable, and the appropriate size for the pet. If you are not sure, please ask us for guidance. We will not accept pressure treated wood, plastic or fiberglass containers.

How long can you keep my pet at your location before burial?

We recognize that this is an emotionally difficult time; therefore, arrangements can be made to keep your companion for a reasonable amount of time while you weigh your options.

Can I bury my pet with its’ favorite toy?

Our pet cemetery is environmentally friendly. As such, we welcome biodegradable toys such as sticks, wool blankets, or rawhide bones. Toys made of synthetic materials or rubbers will not properly biodegrade, and may not be buried with your pet. Toys left as tokens on the burial site will be removed after a week or two.

Can I bury multiple pets in my plot?

Yes, but the pets must be buried at the same time. 

With your all-inclusive price can I choose the plot location?

No, plot allocation is assigned by cemetery staff.

Can I provide my own plaque or head stone?

Yes, you are able to provide your own plaque or headstone, provided it has been approved by Resting Paws.  We do not allow wood markers or makeshift cement markers.

When can I visit my pets’ grave?

You may visit your pet’s final resting place whenever you wish. However, please keep in mind that snow is not cleared in the grave area in winter.
