World Pet Memorial Day was created as a special day to memorialize beloved pets that have passed away. It is observed every year on the second Tuesday in June. Pets are only in our lives for a short time, they stay in our memories forever. A wonderful way to celebrate is plant a memorial garden.
Reflect on the wonderful moments that you had and help yourself find peace in knowing how much you and your pet brought to one another’s lives.
Memorial gardens can be as big or small as you want. You can plant flowers, plants, or trees in your own yard, or purchase space to plant a tree in honor of your pet in a local park. Every time you see these plants or trees, you’ll be reminded of the happy times you shared with your pet.
Even planting a tree, a shrub, or flowers in a pet’s memory can be comforting. Whatever you decide to do on World Pet Memorial Day, remember to take time. No matter how much time has passed since you lost your pet, you still have strong feelings that you deserve to take time to feel.
