New Website 4myfriend.com Gives Pet Lovers a Therapeutic Way to Memorialize Their Pets

An Online Community Dedicated to Tasteful and Lasting Tributes for Beloved Family Pets

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 09, 2015) - It's no secret how much pet owners love their furry, feathered and scaly friends. They're considered members of the family, receive deserving birthday and festive gifts, are included in travel plans and even pampered at spas and daycare. Unfortunately, their circle of life is shorter than their owners and when they pass it's natural to experience the same feelings of grief we endure when we lose a close friend or family member. Just like with people, creating a memorial can be an incredibly therapeutic way to work through the grieving process and now there's an easy way to do this in a beautiful and lasting way. 4myfriend.com has launched in Vancouver for pet lovers to easily build media-rich online memorials to commemorate their beloved friend through words, pictures and video.

"Losing a pet is incredibly tough, it's like losing a member of your family. 4myfriend.com is a cost-effective channel created to help people work through it in much the same way. Now people can create the same type of beautiful tribute we usually only see for celebrities in the obituary section of a newspaper," said Keith Stride, founder and president of 4myfriend.com. "The site's easy to use and a great way to celebrate their life in a tasteful and lasting way."

Built by pet lovers for pet lovers, 4myfriend.com is a contemporary, growing online community that allows users to upload photos, video and unlimited text through an easy-to-use interface directly on the site. Some of the 4myfriend.com features include:

  • Modern and media-rich experience: Upload capability of up to 30 videos and photos
  • Easy social sharing: users choose the major social media platforms that viewers can easily share on
  • Mobile-friendly: Intuitive design and function is optimized for viewing on smartphones and tablets
  • Guest Book: Users can easily add a guest book inviting viewers to comment and share words of encouragement or a fond memory. All comments are forwarded to the user who must approve before they appear on the memorial.
  • Supporting charities: Links can be added to encourage donations to charitable organizations like the SPCA and PETA
  • Quick and easy uploads

The cost to use the service is from FREE (one picture and up to 50 words) to $35 (up to 30 pictures and videos and unlimited text) and includes 2 years of editing access and a lifetime webpage.
