In honor of National Pet Memorial Day, I was proud to sponsor the “Remembering Our Pets” event, being co-hosted by Dane County Humane Society and Memorial Pet Services. The ceremony was a loving way to honor pets that are no longer with us, and a way to celebrate the wonderful pets currently in our lives.
We celebrated the pets in our lives Sunday September 8, 2013 with
- Pet Memorial
Pet Owners brought a photos of and/or written tribute to their pet for a memorial display at the event.
- A brief ceremony
The text of my speech can be read here.
- Seed planting
- Commemorative rock garden event
National Pet Memorial Day was originally created in 1972 by the International Association of Pet Cemeteries in recognition of the importance of remembering beloved lost pets.
The day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in September.
