Pet Memorial Ceremony

Baltimore Humane Society Pet Memorial Sunday Ceremony
September 10, 11am
All Invited

On Sunday, September 10th at 11a.m., the Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park will hold a free public memorial ceremony in observance of National Pet Memorial Day. The ceremony is for anyone who has experienced the loss of a beloved pet, no matter when or where the loss occurred. All our pets create lasting memories. Our pets are our family members. They’re our friends. They’re our special companions who, even when physically gone, stay alive forever in our memories — and our hearts. This ceremony will be an opportunity to remember and celebrate those loving bonds.

You do NOT need to have a pet buried at the Memorial Park or adopted from Baltimore Humane Society to attend.
