As I have previously discussed, New York adopted regulations to allow pet cemeteries to bury cremated human remains next to their pet as long as the pet cemetery did not charge a fee for the human burial. The limitation in charging an additional fee makes providing this service less desirable for the pet cemeteries to offer, and some are unwilling to incur the additional costs of the extra burial for no additional payment. Now, a new regulation is headed to the state senate that would allow the pet cemeteries to charge a fee for the service
