Where to Bury a Good Dog

An 86-year-old poem that rings true today

Julia Kamysz Lane | April 12, 2012

Taken From

There is one special place for every good dog.

A friend sent this poem to me, knowing how much I miss my beloved Desoto and Shelby. I had been holding onto their ashes, unsure of where to bury my good dogs. Shall I scatter them into the Louisiana swamps that Desoto loved to explore? Would Shelby be happiest under the big tree, watching for squirrels? This poem tells me they're already in the right place.

 After Death Pet Services

Losing a dear friend is never easy. We understand that the passing of a beloved pet needs to be handled with dignity and compassion. Through years of caring, compassionate companion animal care, we understand the emotions encountered when a pet passes.

Determining what to do with your pet's remains is always a difficult decision to make. Our goal is to help you make the right decision for you and your family and to provide you with a sense of closure. Our staff is dedicated to making this difficult time as easy for you and your family as possible. If there is any way that we can help, please let us know.

Pet Cremation Services

If you choose to have your animal cremated you have two options; if you choose a private cremation your animal will be cremated alone and all of their ashes will be returned to you. If you choose a group/mass cremation your animal is cremated with other deceased pets and no ashes are returned.

Private Cremation

Your pet is cremated by itself with no other animals. All of the pet's remains (ashes) are returned to the owners. We return the remains to you in a memorial container.

Mass Cremation

Your animal is cremated WITH other animals. There is no way to place more than one animal in a crematory at a time and the remains not contact the other animals. Due to the air flow particles will be blown around. No ashes are returned to the owner because there is no way to guarantee which pet they are from. Some places will place each animal in individual trays or place dividers between animals, there is no way to 100% guarantee that remains aren't mixed when multiple animals are in the chamber at the same time.

Cremation Services

The James A. Brennan Humane Society is equipped with a crematory and services the Fulton, Montgomery area. You can bring your deceased pet to us directly and we will perform either a private or group cremation. Our rates are as follows:

Fee with Tax

0-20 pounds

‘Your Canine Guardian Angel‘ Poem

I know that you must miss me,By the tears rolling down your face.But believe me, when I tell you that,I’m in a very good place.

There are meadows here to run in,And plenty of rabbits to chase.There are other dogs to play with,To frolic with and race.

So please don’t worry about me,My spirit feels light as can be.There’s no more pain to plague me,I’m young again and free.

And I’ll be watching over you still,of that you can be sure.I’m your canine guardian angel,And my love for you remains pure.
