Until recently, most people had minimal options if they wanted to be buried with their fur babies. In fact, for a long time the only choice folks had was to be buried in a pet cemetery if that was what they wanted.
But if humans can be buried in a pet cemetery, then why can’t pets be buried in a human cemetery?
One state answered that question with the passage of a new law.
New York state is switching up the rules when it comes to where pets are allowed to be buried. They passed a law that allows folks to be buried right alongside their pets if they so choose, in a human cemetery. And the law isn’t just limited to cats and dogs. It also allows a range of different animals to rest in peace next to their owners.
This is one new law that pet owners are applauding because our fur babies are a part of our family. There are, of course, some exemptions to the law. Religious cemeteries do not have to comply with this new law, and individual cemeteries are still allowed to refuse to bury any pets if they so, please.
