If You Want to Send a Sympathy Gift For the Loss of a Pet, Here Are Some SuggestionsWritten by Tara Pearce
If a friend of family member has just lost a pet, it’s natural to want to send them a sympathy gift. The hard part isn’t pulling out your credit card to buy though – it’s deciding what to send. It’s a sensitive time and you don’t want to upset someone who’s close to you. That’s why we’re here. We’ve been on both sides of this terrible time and can guide you in terms of what to send.
If you have a tight budget, for less than $50 you can get following items:
- A book that helps pet owner through their grieving. - A memorial stone for backyard, engraved with pet’s name, date of birth or a nice poem. - A figurine of pet’s breed is always nice. - A necklace with a bone or a dog pendant. - A picture frame and put a picture of pet in it.
If you have a little more to play with, for under $100 you could get:
- A granite pet marker with text of your choice. - A portrait frame urn for a keepsake or cremains. - A memorial stone with a beautiful saying: “If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven and bring you Home again”

When I first laid eyes on my little ball of black fluff at an adoption fair, I knew there was no turning back. My husband and I had been looking for just right dog for months, and all research and networking had finally paid off. There was no doubt in my mind that we had found most perfect, precious four-legged family member in world.
As luck would have it, adoption fair was right around corner from our home, this gave us a great opportunity for a home visit at end of event. I ran home, scrubbed and cleaned and did everything I could to make sure our home was ‘puppy worthy’. As soon as she arrived with her foster mom, puppy made sure to let us know she was in right place…but more about that later.
