Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — A beloved pet can be memorialized through a ceremony using the biodegradable urn, a Perk on The Pet Concierge’s newly launched Indiegogo campaign.
The biodegradable urn is used to plant a pet’s ashes or a photo and let them “rebirth” into a tree, or a plant of choice. The urn is divided into two separate capsules: the upper capsule is a sealed unit to ensure the good condition of the seed until it begins to sprout, and the lower capsule is where the pet's ashes are stored.
The top part of the urn is expertly designed to allow the seed to sprout. The tree grows in the upper compartment, until the urn itself begins to degrade. After this time the entire set, including pet’s ashes, becomes part of the sub-soil and fertilizer for the tree.
This is a wonderful opportunity to honor a pet by letting their story continue into a long-lasting memory that is good for the planet. “We saw the need for our clients to honor their beloved pets after they have passed away. We see this as an opportunity for pet owners to remember,” notes Lee Richter, owner of Montclair Veterinary Hospital and Holistic Veterinary Care. “Whether you just have a balcony with container plants or a large yard with lots of trees, this is a memorial that works for a range of households,” added Lee Richter.
The Indiegogo campaign was launched to help build The Pet Concierge Education Center in the San Francisco Bay Area. The organization is currently accepting donations in exchange for “perks.” From an informative eBook to a photo shoot with an award-winning pet photographer, pet lovers and supporters will receive a variety of perks while donating to a worthy cause.
ThePetConcierge.com launched in 2012 as an online resource to teach pet owners how to keep pets healthy and happy during all phases of their life. The Pet Concierge Education Center will be a space where pet owners can improve the lives of their pets and learn to save money on medical costs by attending workshops on the latest findings in pet health, accessing an impactful library of pet health articles, connecting with award-winning pet health experts, and providing customized wellness plans.
“The Pet Concierge Education Center is a community center that aims to serve the needs of pet lovers and their furry family members. We’ve learned from pet owners that in addition to pet care education, they want to be connected to a community of pet lovers just like them,” says Richter. “We need your help to make this a success.”
