ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New regulations will allow New York animal lovers to spend eternity with their pets.
The Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/16rANlX ) that officials have finalized rules allowing pet cemeteries to accept the cremated remains of humans.
The cemeteries can bury pet owners’ ashes as long as they don’t charge a fee for it and don’t advertise human burial services.
New York’s Division of Cemeteries put a halt to human burials at pet cemeteries in 2011 after an Associated Press story about the practice. It later relaxed the ban on a limited basis and began working on permanent rules.
Ed Martin, owner of the 117-year-old Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in Westchester County, says he gets five or six requests a year from humans who want to have their ashes buried with their pets.
