New Law Allows Pets To Be Buried Alongside Their Humans At Cemeteries


Humans who were looking to be buried with their fur babies used to have very few options available to them. Basically their only choice was to be buried in a pet cemetery if that’s what they wanted. Those who had been monitoring the situation always found this interesting.

But if people can be buried at a pet cemetery, at a pet cemetery, why shouldn’t animals be able to reside in human cemeteries?

The state of New York has decided to put a stop to this practice. A new law has been passed that finally allows pet owners to bring their fur babies along with them to the great beyond. And the law isn’t just limited to dogs and cats. It allows for a range of different animals to be buried with their owners.New Law Allows Pets To Be Buried Alongside Their Humans At Cemeteries

Even if you do not own a dog or cat, you will still have the chance to be buried alongside your most beloved pets going forward.

It’s a decision that many pet owners are applauding, as their fur babies are part of their family. There are some exemptions to the law, of course. Religious cemeteries don’t have to comply with this new law, and individual cemeteries can still choose to refuse to bury any pets if they so please.

One Westchester County pet cemetery reports that at least five humans choose to be buried at this location each year. This is how they are able to spend eternity with their loved ones.

Pet owners finally get the chance to rest in peace alongside the animals that brought them so much joy. After all, why should humans be allowed in pet cemeteries if the reverse is not true? Pets are family members and they should always be treated as such. There is no reason to make such a distinct separation.

We hope that other states are also willing to follow suit. Gone are the days of having to sneak a pet into the cemetery.

For some people who wish to be buried with their pets, they have to resort to somehow sneaking them into the cemetery. This can be dangerous for the friends or family members who are asked to do this after the pet owner has passed away.

But now, in New York at least, there doesn’t have to be any slinking around in a cemetery, performing secret burials for loved ones. You and your pet can be together forever, if you want to!
The cemetery must also be willing to approve. Be sure to share this amazing development with all of your friends and loved ones who wish to be buried with their pet.
