In honor of National Pet Memorial Day, we are proud to sponsor the 9th 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. This event is free and open to all pet lovers. Feel free to invite anyone who could benefit from being with a community of people to support them during their healing period.
Join us! Let’s celebrate of the lives of our pets.

National Pet Memorial Day was 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.
Our pets spend their love and their lives devoted to us. Each of our pets have blessed us with a very special relationship. By being in relationship with us, they have given their love and joy to us to share, and even though their physical bodies may be gone, the love and joy stays with us. We cherish and remember them, and share our memories today, on National Pet Remembrance Day. So today, my question is how has your pet blessed you?
