Meet the Animal Companion Ribbon Memorial, here at Companioning Care LLC.
It resides in my office or goes on the road with me to help people understand that the pets we love are as important to commemorate as the humans we love.
Since 2014, this very special garden stand has been collecting ribbons. Each ribbon has the name of an animal who is dear to someone – an animal who has died, left the home in a split-up, been lost, or who has needed to be re-homed
Many of the people who have created these ribbons over the years have been my clients, but not all of them. When I was still working part-time, I offered them to co-workers who were mourning the deaths of their animal companions. And each year I give gift certificates for these ribbons to Willamalane’s PetFest, to be awarded in their event giveaway.
Now you can have a ribbon added for your beloved pet.
If you’re local to Eugene, Oregon, you can make arrangements to make one and tie it on the stand yourself.
If you’re out of the area, you have two options: Have me make one and attach it for you. Or I’ll mail you a ribbon, you add the name (and a message on the other end), mail it back, and I’ll tie it on for you. Either way, you choose the color of ribbon to use.
If you’d like to memorialize your pet this way, please contact me. I’d love to have your animal companion’s name added to the Animal Companion Ribbon Memorial.
