BioUrn, Inc. supports the pet-loving community by donating a complimentary BioUrn to any military or civilian service K9 lost in the line of duty. We also donated BioUrn to the Sweetpea Friends of Rutland in Paxton, Massachusetts. Their rescue shelter tragically burned to the ground in November, 2015, causing the loss of fifty animals who were awaiting adoption. A BioUrn tree-lined memorial path is being built in honor of those pet who lost their lives in the fire.
What is a BioUrn?
The BioUrn is hand made from biodegradable materials and holds the tree sapling or the “SeedBead” of your chosen plant. A SeedBead is encased in clay and nutrients to enhance germination when planted.
The entirety of your pet’s cremated remains (ashes) are held in a cotton, drawstring bag that comes in your BioUrn kit. The cotton cremains bag is placed into the BioUrn, followed by soil and your sapling or SeedBead. The BioUrn is then planted and watered, so that the seed germinates and begins to grow. Within weeks there’s the beginning of a new life, a memorial tree that will serve as a living tribute to your beloved family member for many years to come.
BioUrn is good for our planet, for our pets and for the people who love them.

Helping Children Through the Loss of a Family Pet
BioUrn comes in a kit and is quite simple to prepare. A child of 3 or 4 can participate in the process by helping to choose the tree, digging the hole and putting the SeedBead into the BioUrn.
Veterinarians and parents agree that the loss of a family pet can be traumatic for everyone, especially for a child.
The BioUrn burial option brings the focus to an earth-friendly, “circle of life” experience. This allows a child to view the loss of their family pet in a totally different, less traumatic way.
When a pet has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, it’s not the end of the road, it’s the beginning of a new journey… The BioUrn journey.
