Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day on August 28 sets aside a day to remember the pet companions we’ve lost.
The death of a pet, whether furry, feathered or an uncommon variety, we feel the loss deeply. They become family and a familiar part of our lives. Mourning their death is different for everyone and Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day provides a way to help heal the ache of loss.
Celebrate the home you provided and the joy your beloved pet brought you in return. When you are ready, you will know time has arrived to find a new ‘critter’ to replace the emptiness felt. There are many animals yet to find a home and in time you can be their new home.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Take time to enjoy memories of your pet. Look through pictures. Consider a visit to an animal shelter if you feel ready. Volunteering time may help the adjustment. Use #RainbowBridgeRemembranceDay to share on social media.
Deborah Barnes founded Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day in honor of her cat, Mr. Jazz. Cats are interesting, and lovable, little friends to have around the home. Always missed when they are gone. It’s the same with any pet in truth.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
