It is true that we at Accu-Care focus our attentions on attending to families and individuals who require an immediate cremation for a friend or family member who had not preplanned their own cremation arrangements. However, we are addressing in this blog post a cremation trend that is growing, not just here in the United States, but across the globe. More and more people are choosing cremation as a way to keep their pets with them after they have died.
According to the Cremation Association of North America, an advocacy group that highlights the advancement of cremation in Canada, Mexico, and the United States, the pet memorialization market is one of the fastest growing segments of the industry in both Canada and the United States. As demand continues to increase for this service, more and more traditional cremation providers are exploring if and how they should responsibly offer it as a service they provide.
As a result of this increased interest among its member groups, the Cremation Association of North America is currently working with other industry organizations in the formation of rules and standards in the practice of pet cremation. CANA has even established the Pet Cremation Council with the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories (IAOPCC). This new organization is responsible for establishing definitions, guidelines, developing educational offerings, and other initiatives.
It seems logical that the increase in popularity of cremation for people would naturally extend to members of our fur families as well. Accu-Care Cremation is here for you when you need an immediate cremation for a friend or loved one who has just died. Call us at any time of the night or day.
