Animals Get Their Own Memorial Day

| by PETA

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.
