Keep Their Memory Alive
For many of us, our animals are more than just pets—they’re members of the family. And when they pass on, we grieve them intensely; their absence leaves a huge hole in our hearts. While your deceased pets may no longer be with you physically, you can still keep their memory alive. If you’ve lost a dog, cat, bird, snake or any other kind of beloved animal, you’ll want to explore these seven creative ways to memorialize a pet.

1. Display a Favorite Photograph
One of the best ways to memorialize a pet is to display your favorite photo of them. Whether you keep the photo ar your desk or on your mantel at home, it’s great to have a visual reminder of your best friend. It may be hard at first to look at the picture, so don’t display it right away. However, when enough time passes and you’re ready, you’ll see that picture and smile and that sweet face.
2. Commission Artwork
Why not take the first tip up a notch and have an original artwork commissioned? A professional artist can take your favorite photo of your pet and turn it into a life-size painting or even a sculpture. Artwork is certainly one of the grander ways to memorialize a pet.
3. Make a Shrine
Devote a small table or corner in your home to your deceased pet using special objects and keepsakes. You might create a shrine using their food bowl, collar, a few photographs, and a candle. This area could also become a great place to meditate or simply contemplate life.
4. Make a Paw Print
This requires a bit of forethought before your pet passes. Consider having your pet step into a square of cement in your backyard (or use a clay kit to make a more portable mold) so you can have his or her paw immortalized. Some vets make paw prints of pets that have been euthanized, so don’t forget to ask if that’s a keepsake you’d like to have.
5. Keep Their Tags
Consider wearing your pet’s tags on a necklace or bracelet. You can also keep their tags in your jewelry box for a subtle, tangible reminder of his or her life.
6. Celebrate Their Birthdays
Each year, you can honor your deceased pets by continuing to celebrate their birthday. Say a few words about what they meant to you and perhaps buy or make their favorite treat—you can share it with your new pet or a friend’s pet as a way of marking this special occasion and showing that you still have love to give to other animals in your life.
7. Donate in Their Name
One of the easiest and most impactful ways to memorialize a pet is to pay it forward to animals in need by choosing a cause that’s important to you—like your local humane society or the World Wide Fund for Nature. Give what you can in your pet’s name. You can also schedule regular donations! This certainly allows your deceased pet to leave legacies that go beyond your family and help other animals enjoy better lives.
