A nice item. I haven't used it as yet, but I will when ready. It is very sturdy and I trust it will suit the purpose!


Perfect for taking care of deceased fur babies

I ordered this for our hamster Trixie after she passed. It was delivered faster than expected which was great! There was a small chip in a corner of the pod which I figured happened during shipping. This did not effect the overall function of the pod. Thank you for offering this option for pet owners to handle end of life situations in a dignified manner.More > < Less


Pet Urn

I had to return the the original one I ordered. The replacement is terrific. My beloved Charlie, a therapy dog, passed away and I could not think of a more fitting burial urn for him. He gave to people all of his life and now he will continue to give back in a touching and living memorial.More > < Less

Had looked, in vain, for a proper container to use for our much loved pet's ashes. Paw Pod couldn't be more perfect. A wonderful product.


a gift for a friend

My friend's dog had to be put down because of complications of old age. She had her cremated and wanted to bury part of the ashes in her backr back yard and part at
her parent's grave site. But she felt just sticking the ashes
in the dirt wasn't enough. I bought this so she could have a little custom "casket" that she could decorate and then have flowers to mark the spot. I just happened to see this product right when she needed it.

About Paw Pods

Respectful Rest

The passing of a pet can be a terribly painful time, but being able to lay them to rest in a respectful, dignified way often provides closure and helps us heal. Paw Pods are eco-friendly, affordable burial pods designed just for pets.

When Founder Ben Riggan’s dogs had to be put to sleep due to age-related health problems, they were returned to him in blue “cadaver bags.” The impersonal treatment made a hard experience that much harder, so Ben created Paw Pods as a better way for vets to handle the remains of beloved family pets. Now Paw Pods are available to everyone in multiple sizes and urns.

Pets are often a child’s first experience with the concept of death—whether a goldfish, turtle, cat, or dog. A proper burial can help kids transition through a time of confusion and loss. Paw Pods can easily be painted or decorated to celebrate your pet’s life, and they allow you to bury them in a meaningful place of your choosing.

Paw Pods are made from 100% biodegradable bamboo and rice husks, but are durable enough to protect from curious wildlife. Each one comes with a seeded memorial card to bury with it, transforming the site into a tribute of wildflowers.

Say goodbye with love and respect and watch your pet’s memorial bloom.
