World Pet Memorial Day

dog-608401_1280From the moment we first say hello to the dog or cat we welcome into our heart and home we know that the day will come when we will have to say goodbye. Although the pain that comes with parting is the price we must pay for days spent in the company of a cherished companion, we are left with a wealth of treasured memories that we made with our furry friend.

Held each second Sunday in June, World Pet Memorial Day is a time to both look back with love on the pets in our past and help efforts to build a better future for our barking buddies and purring pals who are at risk of never knowing the joy of a pet/parent bond. In honor of a late dog or cat, animal lovers can give the gift of their time at a local shelter, make a monetary donation to a paws cause, contribute blankets, toys or much-needed supplies to a shelter or rescue organization, and– if the time is right, say hello to a new pal with paws.
