Strong bonds: The bond between animal and human can be stronger than human relationships.
When a pet dies
For many people, the death of a pet is devastating.
"It's still a grief not fully recognised," says Gaelynn
Beswick, counsellor and managing director of Loving
Tributes Pet Cremation Service.
"When a human loved one dies, it's considered
appropriate and normal to take bereavement leave.
It's a rare employer that grants the same for a loved
pet. Yet the bond between animal and human can be
as strong, if not stronger, than many human
relationships,'' says Beswick.
"If the love-bond is deep, how appropriate it is that
the grief for our pet will be also."
Loving Tributes is the only pet cremation service in
the South Island that individually cremates each pet.
People choose Loving Tributes for this reason,
along with the personal care and reasonable rates.
Set in a peaceful garden with dovecote and water
feature is a log cottage where owners bring their
loved pets. It's a healing environment where there is
no hurry and time is given to say goodbye.
A pickup service from home or vet is also available.

Funding applications awaiting
decisions included an application to
the Canterbury Community Trust.
We ve received some support in

our Aquatic Star walkway when the
new facility opens midway through
2013, Mrs Moore said.
