    NY may allow pet owners to be buried with their furry pals

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) New York state may soon allow pet owners to spend eternity with their furry companions.

    The state Legislature has passed a bill allowing cemeteries, except for religious ones, to offer people the option of being buried with the cremated remains of a dog, cat or other tame domesticated animal.

    Cemeteries wouldn't be required to allow pet remains.

    Supporters say they expect many pet owners will embrace the idea. They say cemeteries should be free to offer the option.

    The proposal is the latest in a series of measures honoring the bond between human and beast. Last year, New York lawmakers passed a law allowing dogs on restaurant patios. They also are considering a ban on cat declawing.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo hasn't weighed in on the cemetery bill.

    I wonder why religious cemeteries have to ban critters?

    New Yorkers Can Now Be Buried With Their Pets. Sorta

    New York state will now allow people to be buried with the cremated remains of their pet, the AP reports. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the measure into law on Monday. Cuomo, a Democrat, says many New Yorkers consider their pets to be a member of the family, and says the previous regulation banning the burial of cremated pet remains with their human companions was "unnecessary." But cemeteries wouldn't have to offer the option, and religious cemeteries would be specifically forbidden from doing so. The proposal is the latest in a series of measures honoring the bond between human and beast in New York. Last year, state lawmakers passed a law allowing dogs on restaurant patios. They also are considering a ban on cat declawing.
