The first question that you will have to ask yourself is do I want burial or cremation for my pet. There are some factors that will influence your decision; such as if you are going to bury your pet, where will the burial be? Some of the areas of consideration with this decision are:

Will this town/county/development allow pet burials?
Will you always live in this area or have access to this burial ground?
Do your religious preferences guide you in one way or another?
Did your pet like the outside or the inside? Will that influence your pet’s final resting place?

Lastly, if you are burying, there is also the opportunity to place your pet in a casket. Many people will use a casket to not only protect their pet’s body but to also protect the ground where the pet is buried.
