Losing a pet is a very traumatic experience, and the sense of loss can be devastating. Many people feel it is vitally important to cherish the joyful memories of time spent with their beloved pets, and having an online memorial celebrating their pet’s life can really help in coping with grief.
Pet funeral, casket and headstone sites are already proving popular with pet owners wishing to preserve pet memories, and it is now seen as commonplace to treat a pet with the same respect as humans. There are already a number of human online memorial sites and now, with ImmortalPets.com, there is a suitable pet equivalent.
“Having lost a number of pets myself, I know how hard the grieving process can be,” said founder Phil McArthur. “By creating an online memorial, it can hopefully help immortalise the precious memories of our beloved companions.”
Users have complete control over how the memorial appears, and can choose from a selection of suitable templates as the basis for their memorial. Up to 100 pictures can be added and grouped into albums, and a full biography of the pet can be written by the owner and displayed on the memorial page. Background music can be chosen from a selection of respectful tracks, and users can light a virtual memorial candle at any time as a mark of respect for their cherished companion.
Memorials on ImmortalPets.com can be created completely free of charge, and are hosted on the ImmortalPets.com website free for two weeks. For the memorial to stay on the site permanently, a small one-time fee is required to cover costs.
