Celebrating National Hug Your Dog Day with CPC Cares

April 10th every year marks an unofficial, yet heartwarming occasion known as National Hug Your Dog Day. While not recognised as an official holiday, this day serves as a gentle reminder for dog owners to shower their furry companions with extra love and affection.

When the time comes, saying your final farewells to your pet can provide a great sense of closure. That’s why we invite all owners and family members to have a final farewell in a calming and peaceful environment at select CPC sites.

When the time comes: cremation options at CPC

Losing a beloved pet is an incredibly difficult experience, and at CPC, we understand the deep emotional bond you shared with your companion. We are here to provide support and guidance during this challenging time.

What to do when the time comes to say goodbye

Losing such an important family member is never going to be easy and can leave us with a profound feeling of loss, sadness and heartbreak. Preparing for the end of a pet’s life may seem like a strange or even morbid thing to do, but knowing what to do when the time comes to say goodbye to your fur-baby may help you with your grieving process later down the line.

Memories shouldn’t cost the earth

At CPC, we want all pet owners to have access to a lasting memory of their pet, especially during these tough financial times. So, in recognition, we have reduced our pricing and our Treasured Paws kits are now available from as little as £15 each, as memories shouldn’t cost the earth.

You have had your pet cremated – what should you do with the ashes?

As pet cremation has become more popular with pet owners in the UK, more pet owners need to decide what to do with their pet’s ashes. In fact, choosing the final resting place for your pet’s ashes can help you and your family members with the grieving process.

Many choose to keep the ashes at home in a casket or urn. Others prefer to scatter their pets’ ashes. There is no right or wrong way – however, there may be some considerations before you make up your mind.

If It Should Be

If it should be
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain does keep me from my sleep.
Then will you do what must done
For this – the last battle – can’t be won.

You will be sad I understand
But don’t let grief then stay your hand
For on this day, more than the rest
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years
You wouldn’t want me to suffer so
When the time comes, please let me go.

I know that in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me
Although my tail its last has wagged
From pain and suffering I have been saved.

Don’t grieve that it must now be you
Who has to decide this thing to do
We’ve been so close – we two – these years
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
