They are family after-all
It’s about time, they are family to. They show love to us more than some family members do.
New York is changing up the rules when it comes to pets and where they’re allowed to be buried. They passed a law that allows people to be buried alongside their pets if they so choose, in a human cemetery.
It’s a decision that many pet owners are applauding, as their fur babies are part of their family.
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.
A pet cemetery in Westchester County stated that, every year, at least five people choose to be buried with their pets in their cemetary, rather than being apart from them in a human cemetery. It’s a way for them to stay close to their loved ones even after they’re gone.
New York is finally allowing pet owners to rest in peace next to the living creatures who provided so much comfort, companionship, and happiness during their time on earth. After all, it doesn’t quite make sense that humans could be buried in pet cemeteries, but not vice versa.
Sometimes family is who we choose, not who we’re blood-related to — and that applies to our pets too. Pets are family.
Why make such a distinct separation between what constitutes as family?
They are part of the family, faithful and loyal to the end, they shouldnt be buried alone.
With New York leading the way, hopefully other states will fall in line and create similar laws.
New laws seem to crop up all the time, and they can be [con.fu.sing] — but this is one law that many of us understand the importance of.
Great idea! People without pets may not unferstand this… They are part of the family and i think this is absolutely great
