Pets are all about love.
They are dear friends and members of our families, so it is often devastating when they die. There is a place in your heart that is only meant for them. Each RemembeRing creates a lasting legacy that celebrates the cherished relationship shared with a furry companion.
Whether a pet passes suddenly or their death is anticipated, grief is always unique and complex. We often feel helpless and overwhelmed, yet society tends to minimize how hard it is and expects us to move on quickly. RemembeRing is here to help and comfort people of all ages and persuasions as they heal through the loss of their beloved companion animals. Everyone deserves personalized care, patience, and compassion during this heartbreaking experience.
A universal grief tradition that supports saying goodbye to a pet is long overdue—RemembeRing is just that!
Independent of spiritual or cultural leanings, it validates the importance of a beloved friend in our lives.
The Origin Story
A Love of Pets from the Very Beginning
My name is Emily Piccirillo and I’m RemembeRing’s Founder and CPL (Chief Pet Lover).
I was a lucky kid because my family included lots of pets — dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, turtles, birds, fish, guinea pigs, salamanders, a racoon, an iguana— you name it! They were part of my daily life. My formative years taught me so many lessons about life and death, and how to care deeply and adore another being, even one with a very short existence.
“As a vet tech, I do all I can to support clients when it’s time to say goodbye to their furry family members. It’s so difficult for all of us. RemembeRing helps express how much they mean to everyone their lives have touched.”
“When Bella was dying, I couldn’t imagine anything could help me cope but my RemembeRing gives me real comfort. I miss her every day but then I look at her picture and smile. I feel a little better each time. She knows I still love her.”
“It’s so special to know my message will stay with Alfie forever and I get to keep his photo in the frame that surrounded it. It reminds me that our hearts are always together.”
To the veterinary clinicians, psychotherapists, healthcare providers, bereavement coordinators, teachers, crematory and cemetery staff, and pastoral care providers who attend to people when they lose a pet —Thank you for your remarkable commitment to helping others. Your role and services in response to a pet’s death are so important due to your empathy, experience and expertise.
