Animals Get Their Own Memorial Day
On Monday, we will honor U.S. soldiers who have passed, as well as our deceased friends and loved ones. For many of us, loved ones include both the two- and four-legged variety. Losing an animal companion can be just as heartbreaking as losing a human family member, and we seek to honor their memories as well. One way to do this is with a True Friends Memorial page on PETA’s website.
A memorial page can be set up for a beloved animal companion or compassionate person, and it includes photographs, a biography, and cherished memories. Friends can visit the site and leave their own special reminiscences, and if they choose, they can make a donation to PETA in the name of the honoree. We remember our departed animals every day, of course, but Memorial Day is a wonderful time to pay special tribute to them.
