Burial is the most common disposition for the human loved ones we lose, so this makes it a natural decision for many pet families to consider.
Burial is for pet families who want a permanent location as a resting place for their beloved companion. Families who tend to move homes or relocate periodically, will need to consider the limitations burial imposes on your ability to move your pet’s remains.
Kentucky residents may bury close to home, however, the law requires burial to a minimum of four feet deep with the body covered with two inches of quicklime and at least 3 feet of earth. In addition, the site must be more than 100 feet from any watercourse, sinkhole, well, spring, public highway, residence, or stable (Kentucky Statues – KRS Chapter 257.160). Faithful Friends Pet Memory Center carries sealed caskets to protect your pet.
Ohio residents do not have the option to bury their pets on their residential property.
Pet Cemeteries are available for those who do not have a burial site close to home or live in an area which prohibits burial in residential areas. Pet Cemeteries require the purchase of a grave site, a casket and also charge for opening and closing the grave.
