Belgrade’s Hidden Pet Cemeteries

It used to be that cities did not worry too much about what to do with residents’ deceased pets. Most people were content to dispose of the remains through cremation or to allow the local authorities to dispose of the remains however they wanted.

Many people today treat their pets like they were members of their families. They often leave their pets inheritances and, in some cases, create elaborate trusts for the care of their pets.

Many people also want to bury their pets more formally in a traditional burial site.

Not all cities around the world have places to bury pets. That can cause problems.

As Fox News reports, this is the case in Belgrade, Serbia. The article is titled “Improvised pet graveyards hidden in Belgrade parks.”

Belgrade has promised its citizens a pet cemetery for a decade, yet the project to actually build one is still in the planning phase.

Not wanting to wait for the city to create a place for their pets, many residents have taken to burying their pets in the city’s parks in hidden graveyards.

The city does offer other ways to dispose of animal remains through official channels.  However, that is not good enough for people who want a place they can go to visit their beloved former pets.

What does this show? The pet human bond is stronger than ever.

If you feel strongly about what happens to your pets after you pass away, then visit an elder law attorney to see what can be done to make sure that your pet is taken care of.

Hear From Our Clients

“On the threshold of retirement, we finally decided to quit thinking we could self-prepare the requisite documents. We had previously had only a very simple will. We needed the necessary legal (including updated will) & health care docs but didn’t want to deal with the time & complication of legalese. Cindy made the process relatively painless. She took the time to explain and answer questions without trying to upsell services. We were done in 2 meetings plus the reading of emailed drafts. In addition to preparing the documents, Nelson Eldercare will be there when our adult children need advice on executing the plans we’ve put in place.So glad it’s behind us and would recommend Cindy and her helpful staff.”

I heard Cindy’s presentation at a Senior Luncheon at my church, and was very impressed. She helped my daughter and me understand many aspects of elder law. Josh has also been very helpful in my planning to enter an independent living situation . I have told many friends about them.
