Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day
And, wherever you are in the world, August 28th is the perfect date to honor the death of a beloved animal friend. Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day is a wonderful occasion to remember the pets that are no longer with us, and the pain we carry with us in their absence. The day was first founded by author Deborah Barnes to help people who have lost pets share their pain, their stories, and their love.
