Spending on pet funerals increases in Sacramento and beyond
By Jennifer Garza
Zoya Girard treated her beloved dachshund, Poncho, like a member of the family all his life. She’s giving him the same kind of attention in death. She wanted her 11-year-old dog to be buried in his favorite blanket, a prayer read at his graveside service and a viewing before he was laid to rest.
Girard leaned over his casket last week, looking at her beloved pet one last time in a visitation room at the East Lawn Pet Loss Center in Sacramento. “He was like a grumpy old man, always barking,” Girard said, weeping. She leaned over and kissed him. “But he was always there for me. This is the least I could do for him.”
