National Pet Memorial Day
Date When Celebrated : Observed on the second Sunday in September
People love their pets. We quickly grow attached to our pets. National Pet Memorial Day is an opportunity to bring closure to the departure of our beloved pets. It allows us to fondly remember our departed pet(s).
There are all kinds of pets. Sure dogs and cats are by far the most popular. But, pets also include rabbits, fish, turtles, ferrets, crabs, snakes, hamsters, gerbils, and a huge assortment of other animals.
Your pet would want you to cherish their memory, then move on. Use this special day for this purpose.
Ways to commemorate National Pet Memorial Day:
Origin of National Pet Memorial Day:
This very special day for pet loves was established by the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories(IAPC).
There was some reference to this as a "National Day". However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. We are still trying to identify if this is a true "National" day.
