Paw Pods, A beautiful way to say goodbye to your pet


The death of a loved pet is something no one wants to face, unfortunately most of us will have to. 65% of U.S. households own a family pet and each year, nearly 50 million of them pass on annually. As deeply saddening and heart wrenching as that is, Paw Pods’ burial pods help make that loss a little easier. With the ability to accommodate pets of all sizes (even fish pods for your kids' first pets), these eco-friendly urns and pods also come with seeded sympathy cards, leaving a beautiful living memorial. Our pets are our family, Paw Pods helps you honor the ones we have lost but will never forget.

Paw Pods are bio-degradable pods allowing owners to bury their pets at home with a dignified, beautiful memorial. The pods can be decorated with paints, markers or stickers giving children and adults a way to express their grief in an expressive and therapeutic form. A seeded leaf of perennial flowers is included with every pod. Its annual blooms create a living memorial to a treasured friend.

Paw Pods recognizes that beyond the unconditional, pure loyal love and joy pets give us, their carbon footprint on our planet is next to none, so their afterlife should follow suit. All pods and urns are eco-friendly and made of bamboo powder, rice husk, and corn starch, designed to respectively degrade in 3-5 years after being introduced to the environment. Additionally, pet owners sometimes mistakenly flush what they believe is a dead fish down the toilet, when it’s in fact, very much alive. Those fish often wind up in lakes and rivers where they can introduce diseases to native fish and water sources. Paw Pods’ Fish Pod offers a safer way to lay pet fish to rest.

Paw Pods are extremely affordable, ranging in price from $9.99 to $149.99, a fraction of what traditional pet caskets cost.
