Those who have pets love them like their own children and its loss can be very tough to deal with. Pets become an inseparable part of our lives and offer unconditional love. We at Tindall Funeral Home have seen that people are inconsolable when they lose a pet.

Ways to Help

If you know someone that is in this situation, here are some ways in which you can help them:

  • It’s important that you respect the person’s grief and pain. Many people that have never had pets are unable to understand the sorrow that those with pets feel about losing one. Some feel the need for companionship while others prefer to left alone when they are grieving. You should be able to judge what the person wants and console them accordingly.
     
  • You can help them plan a memorial service, as it will provide them some peace and comfort. You can invite other friends or family members that are fond of animals and pets to the event.
     
  • Most people opt for cremation of their pets, which can be very challenging to deal with. However, if a loved one or friend is cremating their pet, you should consider accompanying them. If you are at the crematorium with them, it will offer them some solace when they have lost a pet dear to them.
     
  • You can also help them create a Facebook page in memory of the pet and people you know can leave their condolences.

It’s crucial to recognize that the loss of a pet is akin to the loss of a family member and being there for the person is important. Offer all the support you can at this difficult time. We, at Tindall Funeral Home, provide comprehensive funeral services and arrangements required for your needs.
