When you lose a pet, it is important to take care of yourself, allow yourself to grieve, and discover ways to honor your dearly departed loved one. World Pet Memorial Day is a day set aside for just that reason. It is a day to reflect, honor, and celebrate the love shared with pets who have passed. There are many ways to memorialize our pets who are no longer with us, from planting a memorial garden to sharing stories online. I’ve compiled a few of my favorite ways to honor the pets I’ve lost in the video below.
There is no right or wrong way to honor your pet, only what feels right to you. Most importantly, remember to take time on World Pet Memorial Day to feel, the loss of a beloved pet is never easy and the pain we feel in their passing takes time to process and heal. The bond and love we share with our pets mean that they will always be there with us.
