We don't just do memorials for cats & dogs!

Everyone knows someone who has lost a pet, and with so many people owning cats and dogs, we're always hearing the sad news of a beloved pet passing.

But what about all the other animals people own? Where do you find a memorial for your horse, for example?

Here of course!  Since the beginning we've been looking after the legacies of all kinds of animals -- and we do mean all kinds. Here are a few things we've done in the past and we guarantee that at least one of them will surprise you.

1: Headstones for reptiles: believe it or not, people have come to us and asked us to create fitting memorials for lizards, snakes, mischievous turtles and thoughtful tortoises.

2: Pets At Rest have also produced headstones for ferrets and rats, as well as chinchillas, too.

3: We've done great-looking urns for Cockatoos also.

In fact, you name it and we have probably done it at some point. Not only that but we also do...

* Photo pet memorials

* Rustic stone pet memorials

* Bespoke text pet memorials

* Pet tribute keepsakes and pet coffins

Feel free to have a look around and if you need us, you know where we are.

Best wishes,

Team Pets At Rest.

Pets At Rest: Circular Images Now Available On Some Memorials!

Click the picture to see more of our products!

10 years ago, if a customer wanted a memorial for their beloved pet then they didn't exactly have much choice. Nowadays, though, things are very different...with the explosion of the internet, more or less anything you can think of has become commonplace (although it's fair to say that some pet memorial services are better than others!).

Since the beginning, we've done our best to add to what's possible by giving you, the customer, products with genuine flair and real creative innovation! And the latest idea we have is something that should interest many of our customers.

In the past, we've only been able to offer square images. While these have been very popular, we recently realised that it'd be even better if we could offer round images too. And so we started researching how this could be done. Now, after testing the system fully, we're proud to offer it, so please do get in touch on this site's Contact page if you'd like to find out more!

As a result of this cool new idea, it's led to the creation of a few new products in our rustic range of headstones and pet memorials. We're currently sorting these out but should be back soon with an update on this, so be sure to return.

Pets At Rest: We Don't Approve Your Artwork Until You're 100% Happy!

100% Approved Artwork
Here at Pets at Rest, we're well aware that there are other people doing monuments, urns and headstones for cats, dogs and even horses. That's business for you! But while that may be true, we do feel that there are a few unique things we do that not everyone else does. One of those things is approving your artwork first before we start creating your piece, and giving you complete control. There are a few reasons for this, but the top 3 are as follows:

1) By getting your final approval before we go ahead with anything -- even before we polish the stone and prepare it for engraving - you end up with a legend to your pet that's identical to what you first had in mind. And the difference is enormous: some companies will only give you one chance to make changes, whereas here at Pets at Rest we're happy to make changes until you're 100% happy. It just makes sense to us.

2) People tend to change their mind about artwork more than once, and we don't believe they should have to pay for it - after all, when you're doing something that's a little unusual and important, you're bound to find yourself umming and agghing! In other words, our service is designed with real people in mind, so when real people change their mind we're only too happy to go with it rather than against it!

3) By telling you when we're ready to go ahead, you get one last chance to change things - it can be vital...the difference between something you can cherish forever and something which constantly reminds you that you should have intervened. There's more to it than that, of course. Another good reason for us keeping you in the picture is more basic: people have different opinions, and sometimes people change their minds about the photo or font being used. This often means that after seeing the first design, family members will discuss it and come to different conclusions. Our service is designed so that there is time to come to a compromise about the design, instead of rushing it through and ending up with a headstone that could have been so much better.

Any questions? Feel free to ask them on this blog and our team will get back to you!
