In honor of National Pet Memorial Day, I am proud to sponsor the 5th annual “Remembering Our Pets” event, hosted by Journeys Home and Memorial Pet Services. The ceremony is a loving way to honor pets that are no longer with us, and a way to celebrate the wonderful companion animals currently in our lives.
Please join us as we celebrate the pets in our lives we have loved. We will have a short memorial ceremony and share pet memories. Afterwards there will be light refreshments outside in the park and commemorative pet tributes. Please bring a photo or written remembrance to share. This event is free and open to all pet lovers.
We hope to see you there!
