Sunday September 14, 2014 marked National Pet Memorial Day. Clock Timeless Pets held two events, one in Muskegon County and the other in Ottawa County – at Spring Lake Dog Park. It was a beautiful day. Many pet parents came out to honor pet’s they have lost over the years. Clock Timeless Pets works with many of the area’s Vet Clinics where some pet parents, for what ever reasons don’t want their cremated pets remains back. Please understand that it’s not our business to judge, nor do we. How a pet parent processes the grief or what they choose to do with their pet’s remains is none of our business. What’s important, is that the pet parent was responsible and did take responsibility for their their pet’s final disposition. In these situations, it is our policy to honor the unclaimed cremated remains of these pets by scattering them in a responsible way.
Most people are unaware that cremated remains, if not neutralized with a specific compound will kill the grass and can even kill plant life in the lakes or other bodies of water. Why? Because bone fragments have a high level of calcium and sodium. For this reason we mix the cremains with a product called “Let Your Love Grow”. We also bury a biodegradable urn with the names of these pets, as well as any other pet’s names that the public comes to the service to honor, by writing their names on a special perennial card. Both the bio-degradable urn and perennial card are from a company called Paw Pods, which is a Michigan based company.
Clock Timeless Pets would like to thank Spring Lake Dog Park for allowing us to hold our service there. We felt it was the perfect place to honor pets. We hope this is the first of many.
