Q & A: Pet Memorial Day

Question: Pet Memorial Day

“Is there really such a thing as Pet Memorial Day? If there is, when is it and why isn’t it publicized more?”

Answer:

This nation’s first Pet Memorial Day was conducted on June 11, 1972, culminating 10 years of work to inaugurate such an event. The original idea for such a Memorial Day originated in the minds of Bob and Dorie Limpus, who used to operate a pet cemetery in San Diego, California. Thousands attended this event. National Pet Memorial Day is now the second Sunday in September of each year.
