Remembering Our Remarkable Pets

The loss of a pet can be just as traumatic as the loss of a relative or friend. This painful transition should be treated with all the dignity and respect we afford the loss of a human loved one, and the bereavement process is the same. There are simple steps pet owners can take to grieve and start to heal.

* Cherish and celebrate your pet. Keep snapshots around as long as they’re helpful. Have one of them made into a plaque or painting.

* Let friends know – neighbors, fellow pet owners at the dog park.

* Make a donation to a shelter in your pet’s name so another animal will be healthy and ready for a new family. Donate remaining food, treats and medicines to shelters.

* Plan a memorial service. Some pet cemeteries offer private times for these memorials, or you can do this at home or in a special park where your pet loved to play.

* If you choose to place your pet’s cremated remains, toys or other memorials at a pet cemetery, you can visit as often as you need to for loving closure.

* A memorial for your pet symbolizes the lasting bond that will always exist between you and your special companion. You can create a permanent memorial by purchasing a personalized urn to hold the cremated remains, or a custom plaque, garden stone, memory box, park bench, or birdbath. Or you may simply set aside a place in your own garden that holds special memories of your pet.

Since 1951, local pet lovers have gone to 66th Street and 86th Avenue in Pinellas Park to bury or cremate their beloved pets. Through the years, over 7,000 dogs, cats, birds, monkeys and horses found permanent resting spots here. Once known as Happy Hunting Grounds from 1951-1970, then Pinellas Memorial Pet Cemetery and Crematory from 1970-2008, new owners have taken over. The Foster’s, not new to the pet industry, have been a part of the pet cremation service business for 22 years.

Foster’s Pinellas Pet Memorial Gardens and Cremation Services want everyone to know that none of the gravesites will be disturbed. Everyone may be reassured that the pets they put to rest years ago will forever be at peace in their final resting place.

A continual program of improvement and upgrading is underway on our several acres of nicely landscaped grounds.

Family Owned & Operated. Visitations are welcomed at 727-544-1051.
