When a person dies, relatives and friends show their support by attending the funeral or memorial service. Losing a beloved pet is one of life's most painful experiences and yet our society does not offer a grieving pet owner some type of recognized ceremony to help acknowledge this loss. Pet owners often feel isolated in their grief and are without the support they so desperately need, and it raises the question, "Why don't we have funerals for our pets?"
Recognizing that need, Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation hosts a Pet Memorial Sunday event for those who are suffering such a loss. Over the years, families have found a great deal of comfort participating in this unique service as they pay respect to their beloved best friend.
Along with speakers who explore end-of-life issues and the process of grieving, we also present “Words of Tribute” written by families to commemorate and remember the live, special pets. A release of white doves symbolizes our ability to let go of our precious companions.
Participating in this memorial, you will be surrounded by others who understand and sympathize with the grief you are experiencing in a loving and comforting atmosphere.
Our Pet Memorial Sunday event will be held on
