Pet Grave Markers
People having beloved pets as part of their family is nothing new, but what has changed over the last decade or so is the care and expense people go to when it comes time to say goodbye to them. As loving owners we must make arrangements for our pet’s remains. While cremation seems to be the predominant method, many owners still choose to bury their companions. This has led to a growing need for quality pet grave markers. The pet grave marker business continues to grow and evolve and has even caught the attention of traditional monument makers who now along with their “human” markers will make a custom pet grave marker for you family.
Granite Pet Grave Markers
Our most popular pet grave markers are made of granite. The granite pet grave markers are generally a smaller version of what might be placed at a human grave site. These sturdy pet grave markers can be made of black granite (our most popular) gray granite or red granite. They can vary in size from 6” x 10” and about 1” thick up to 2 to 3 feet across and several inches thick. Besides lasting a lifetime our granite pet grave markers can also be personalized very nicely. The larger ones can actually be carved using a sand blaster, the smaller version is done using a laser. The laser engraved pet grave markers are quite popular as you cannot only choose the font and style of writing you want, but you can actually take your favorite photo of your lost friend and transpose directly on to the granite. The clarity is amazing, of course, the better the photograph the better it will come out on the stone. You can also add sentimental touches such as little paw prints or a heart. Before engraving any of the granite pet grave markers a template or sample of the stone will be e-mailed to you for your approval. For these reasons and others, our granite pet grave markers are a wonderfully loving way to mark your pets final resting place. Click here for more information on granite pet grave markers.

Stone pet grave markers are made in a variety of shapes and sizes including a paw print shape or even the shape of a heart.

Another popular choice for the stone pet grave markers are the ones made to look like a real natural stone. Made of crushed granite and resin they actually stones make wonderful memorials for your back yard garden.
