These Canadian made Ceramic urns are hand-made and available in a variety of sizes and colours. All of our urns are one solid piece. They are all bottom loaded and come complete with a fitted stopper. Remove the urn from the plastic shipping cover, remove the stopper, insert the plastic shipping cover into the urn through the hole in the bottom and funel the ashes into the bag. When all the ashes are in the bag, knot, tie, or twist tie the plastic shipping cover closed, tuck inside the urn and insert the stopper. We have found that this is the best procedure to ensure the remains of your pet are taken care of properly.
