Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day (August 28) is a special holiday to celebrate the memory of your furry companion. You can commemorate the wonderful life you shared with your pet by creating a unique memorial. We’ve put together three special ways that you can cherish your pet’s memory: 

 

#1: Create a work of art from your pet’s ashes

If you chose private cremation for your pet’s aftercare, you can incorporate a small amount of their ashes into beautiful works of art. Your pet’s ashes can be mixed into a glass object to create many personal items, including glass pendants, necklaces, rings, keychains, paperweights, and more. Always keep your best friend close to you by incorporating their ashes into a wearable piece of art.

 

#2: Turn a favorite picture of your pet into a painting

What better way to memorialize your pet than to commission an artist to recreate your favorite picture into a painting, sculpture, or other unique art form? Depending on your wishes, you can find an artist to create an image of your pet that is life-like, or in a more abstract style. You can also print a collage of your most beloved pet photos on a large canvas, or transform your pet into a cuddly stuffed animal.

 

#3: Plant a memorial garden on your pet’s grave or favorite spot 

If you chose to bury your pet at home, you may already have a flower planted on the gravesite. Add more blooms, as well as features such as a birdbath or small bench, to your beloved companion’s resting place, so you can sit and enjoy the area where you feel closest to your pet. 

 

Our pets will always hold a special place in our hearts. While they may be gone, they are never forgotten.
