The Basics and More…
The Process

“When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal.
I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.”

Anthony Douglas Williams

The creation of the Poems for Paws® website and the writing of the poems has been a labor of love. The many, many hours of hard work has enabled us to offer an affordable alternative to the full customizable model. We are extremely proud of our products and honored to have the opportunity to create one for you.




The writing of a customized poem involves gathering details about a beloved pet, e.g. nicknames, funny mannerisms, quirky behaviors, breed traits, and so on. Since the poems are so personalized, the more information provided, the more intimate the poem.

Realizing the gathering of such details can be challenging, especially when wanting to give as a gift, Poems for Paws® created options to simplify the process. The online designer tool is easy to utilize and in just a few clicks, a beautiful, complete design, with choice of frame or urn, appears before your eyes.

For those who want to give a gift but are unable to gather any details, a Poems for Paws® gift certificate is an excellent alternative. To learn more about this option, please visit Gift Card.




Faced with the challenge of paging through the photos of our beloved pet can be daunting. Perhaps you have a favorite. That special moment or expression captured, that makes your heart and soul smile. Imagine placing that in a frame alongside a beautiful poem to memorialize that very special bond.

The technical stuff, the higher the resolution of the image uploaded, the more crisp and detailed the quality.

Standard image with poem is 5 x 7. Custom sizes are available upon request.




We offer simple pricing that includes poem, artwork and frame or urn. We ship via USPS Priority Mail as this provides a fast, reliable, improved tracking and day-specific delivery service. A USPS tracking number will be emailed once poem has shipped. If ordering multiple poems, please contact us for a shipping quote.

Payment in full is required by ALL customers. Pay securely with most major Credit Cards.
