They may be gone, but beloved pets will not be forgotten at an upcoming memorial service hosted by the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society.
Former and current pet owners from Waterloo Region are invited to light a candle in honour of a pet that has passed at the service taking place in Stratford.
On Oct 19th from 11 a.m. till noon, the service will include readings, a prayer and hymns.
People are also encouraged to bring in a photo of a beloved pet for the ceremony.
The Humane Society of Kitchener-Waterloo says there will also be time for individual reflection for those hoping to say final goodbyes.
