Remembering our pets, Memorial on 12/6/15
This was our most recent pet memorial event & was be held at the Oshkosh Humane Society. We strive to hold annual pet memorials annually, previous memorials have focused on Thanksgiving, or spring with a butterfly release! It was a wonderful time of sharing and connecting with others, in remembering our special pets that have passed on. We had a photomontage, personalized ornaments to hang on the Christmas tree, drinks and snacks. As always, this event was free and open to all! Creature Comfort Clinic LLC matched donations to the shelter....Together we raised >$1800 for shelter animals!
