Memorial in Minneapolis to remember deceased pets


Minnesotans will have a unique opportunity next month in Minneapolis to remember their pets who have passed away, reports the Associated Press.

Pets Remembered Cremation Services and MN Pets are partnering to hold a Pet Memorial Day service on Sept. 8. The event will be held at the Stone Arch Bridge/Father Hennepin Bluffs Park at St. Anthony Main, the AP says.

Pet owners will have the opportunity to spread their pets' ashes and scatter rose petals from the bridge in memory of their pets. A memorial tree will be planted during the ceremony.

The Pet Memorial Holiday was established in 1972 by the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories and is celebrated on the second Sunday in September.

Pet owners can also visit the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association to post an online memorial for deceased pets and view a list of ways to remember past pets.
