Hi COTH friends! I work with some pet cremation providers, and we are exploring the possibility of expanding resources to assist with pet and equine loss grief. I feel this is an underserved area, as we are often made to feel “weak” for grieving our beloved pets and horses by people who don’t get it. We all know that pet grief is VERY real.
In addition to developing grief resources and material/counseling help as needed, I hope we might be able to connect grieving horse and pet owners with memorialization options. Any recommendations? From horsehair pottery to jewelry to shadow boxes, to something for your cat and dog you find special, please let me know your favorites! We are particularly interested in the most meaningful options, at all cost ranges. The more unique, small business/artisan, and personalized the better.
Thank you for any suggestions and for your thoughts! Feel free to PM me if you prefer not to post publicly.
