How much would you like your pet to rest in peace at the time of passing? Many dog and cat owners have raised certain issues like there are no dedicated facilities for their pets to be buried or cremated, especially in metropolitan cities where most of the land is being commercially occupied by developers for housing and other buildings.
Recently, a policy report published discussed about a sanction passed by DDA which aims to open pet cemeteries, crematorium and burial grounds.
Currently there is a record of ove r 100 dedicated facilities like these for humans but none yet for pets. Although, there certain veterinary hospitals and clinics as well as NGO’s who provide such a facility for a cost of around Rs 1500-5000 per pet; there are no dedicated facilities like the ones proposed by DDA.
DDA announces to have around 15 grounds for animal burial and cremation services across the city.
The cultural history has shown people burying their pets in their backyard or nearby barren lawns; but with the increasingly urban and apartment-based lifestyle many owners are subject to peril with such scenarios.
Although a pet’s demise is a touchy subject, please share your opinions on such municipal advancements and how they will affect people.
