New regulations allow New York animal lovers to spend eternity with their pets. According to The Daily News Reports, officials have finalized worked out rules allowing pet cemeteries to accept cremated remains of humans. Note that it’s the humans who go to the pets, and they can’t advertise human burial services.

Back in 2011, New York’s Division of Cemeteries put a halt to human burials following an Associated Press story about the practice. They later relaxed the ban on a limited basis and started working on permanent rules.

The Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in New York’s Westchester County gets five or six requests a year from humans who want to have their ashes buried with their pets.

    But what happens if you go first? I just had a client call me today to purchase a small life insurance policy on herself so that her dog would be protected if she passed away. Just something to consider, since it seems like we all forget about burial coverage for our four legged family members.
