We've all been there.

We've all lost a beloved pet at one time in our lives; sometimes it's harder than losing a HUMAN member of the family.

There's a place in the U.P. that makes pet caskets, Hoegh Industries in Gladstone. They've been manufacturing these caskets since 1966 and are still going strong. Why? Because people LOVE their pets...and there's nothing wrong with that.

Hoegh Industries makes pet coffins for all pets...and I mean ALL pets: dogs, cats, birds, lizards, pigs, rabbits, snakes, monkeys, hamsters...you name it, they'll have a casket for it (SEE PHOTOS ABOVE).

Not only caskets, but also special commemorative plaques, grave markers and cremation urns.

Next time you're in the Upper Peninsula, pay 'em a visit. It's a unique stop and a welcome addition to your Michigan roadtrip.

They're located at 311 Delta Ave., Gladstone, in Delta County and are open every weekday from 8:30am - 3:00pm!
