MONTREAL, Quebec (July 15, 2014) – The loss of a family pet is never easy, but it can be particularly hard on children, as it may be their first experience dealing with the passing of a loved one. To help ease the difficult process, Farewell Products will introduce the first-ever complete Pet Funeral Kit at SuperZoo 2014, held July 22-24 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The eco-friendly and bio-degradable keepsake box, urn or casket includes a non-denominational funeral service and guidebook designed to help families through the grieving process, a workbook for children, and a paint and brush set, so the keepsake box, urn or casket can be personalized.
The kit was developed due to a gap in the marketplace for a product of its kind – one that is designed for children as well as adults and is also all-inclusive. What sets the Farewell kits apart from other similar products are its educational components, as well as the personalization aspect of the set.
“We understand that your pet is a member of your family and that their memories are very dear to you,” Jarrad Freeman, Sales and Marketing Manager of Farewell Products, said. “We feel we have created a unique way for both children and adults to honor their pet with a meaningful and dignified farewell or shrine, while also helping children better understand loss.”
Farewell Products offers three kits, including:
- Farewell Urn Kit – Made of birch plywood; 8” x 5½” x 4”; comes with guidebook/memorial service, workbook, paint & brush set, and plaque for pet’s name; holds ashes for pets up to 100 pounds; priced at $57.48.
- Farewell Keepsake Box – Made of birch plywood; available in six sizes from Mini to XX-Large; comes with guidebook/memorial service, workbook, paint & brush set, and plaque for pet’s name; priced from $57.48-$321.98.
- Farewell Pet Kit (Casket) – Made of birch plywood; available in six sizes from Mini to XX-Large; comes with guidebook/memorial service, workbook, paint & brush set, and plaque for pet’s name; priced from $57.48-$321.98.
With its unique patented design, the Farewell Pet Kit comes as a fully self-contained, flat pack unit, thus reducing shelf space. The three models are intended to accommodate any pet, from hamsters to large dogs. The simple assembly instructions allow anyone to put together the kits in just a few minutes without the hassle of nails, screws, glue or tools. The plaques that come with each kit are designed to be placed on the urn or casket, or kept as a keepsake. The guidebook and non-denominational memorial service were crafted by a professional grief counselor and are appropriate for all ages.
“We’ve found that sometimes families want the boxes not just to hold their pet’s ashes or body for burial, but as a keepsake or shrine to their beloved dog or cat,” Freeman adds. “We’ve had customers tell us they’ve saved their pet’s favorite toys or collar in one of our kits, as a way to further keep their memory alive.”
The Farewell kits can be ordered online via the company website (farewellpetkit.com), on pet retail sites or on Amazon in five countries, including Canada, USA, UK, France, and Germany. The kit is available in four languages (English, French, German, and Spanish) and can also be ordered over the phone by calling 1-855-735-2011.
