The Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day is commemorated on August 28 of every year. It is a day for your beloved pet which left you alone. Of course, they had been your part of the family, and their loss cannot be ignored. Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day is to remember the pet companions which you had lost. Take some time and honor their memories on this special day.
“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” – Anatole France
History of Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day
Deborah Barnes, author, and blogger of Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles founded the Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day in tribute to her Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, who she had to say goodbye to on August 28, 2013. She shared the experience of letting him go in her book, Purr Prints of the Heart – A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond. As the reaction from her readers was so overwhelming, she decided to create the Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day as a way for others across the world to share memories of the pets they had loved and lost. Whether a pet with fur, fin, feathers, scales, or something else – one pet, or many – the day is meant to honor the pet in any way that feels most comfortable to the pet guardian. People can use social media sites to honor the day by posting a picture, writing poetry, sharing their favorite memory, upload a video, writing a particular blog post, or other methods like creating a unique outdoor memorial.
