Hello there, Flock members! Alessandra here — your friendly Our Hen House Media Coordinator. Today I’m excited to let ya’ll know about a little holiday known as National Pet Memorial Day. Launched by the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association, National Pet Memorial Day takes place annually on the second Sunday in September, providing a venue for human companions to honor their beloved non-human counterparts — both past and present — and reflect upon the important role that those non-humans have played and continue to play in their lives. As animal advocates, I’m sure ya’ll do this just about every day, but hey, it sure doesn’t hurt to make that love and appreciation an official part of our yearly calendar.
