Wayside Waifs Pet Memorial Services



Wayside Waifs Pet Memorial Services staff invites you to honor the memory of your pet on September 12, 2010.  Pet Memorial Day was started in 1972 and is observed on the second Sunday in September each year.  This special day was established to recognize pets for their lives lived, and the unique companionship that is shared between pets and their humans.  Often on Pet Memorial Day, the families will visit their pet’s grave and memorialize with flowers and share stories with other pet families who have experienced the same loss.  Wayside Waifs Pet Memorial Services staff will be available 8am to 4PM on Saturday, September 11th and 10am to 4PM Sunday, September 12th in observance of Pet Memorial Day.   Light refreshments will be served in the new Pet Memorial Service building behind Wayside Waifs main shelter.


Wayside Waifs has been providing a dignified cemetery option since 1946 with over 11,000 burials on our grounds.   All revenue from the cemetery operations support the care given to the thousands of waifs that are brought to Wayside each year.  Wayside is a No Kill Shelter, and in 2009 Wayside Waifs found permanent homes for 5200 loving animals.  Wayside Waifs Pet Memorial Services is available to provide end of life services for area family pets.  Ask your vet to contact Wayside Waifs Pet Memorial Services, or contact us directly with any questions you may have about after life care for your pet at 816-986-4457.
