Remembering Our Pets 2013 Photos

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
  • Refreshments


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.
