Memorialization

Honoring the Memory

Finding a way to honor or memorialize the life and legacy of a beloved animal is an expression of gratitude and an acknowledgment of the gifts we discover through our human-animal bonds.

Annual Remembrance Ceremony

An annual remembrance ceremony to celebrate the lives of beloved animals will be hosted in September to gather with others sharing similar experiences, hear from a speaker with words of healing, create a remembrance item, and view a slideshow of your beloved animals.

If you would like to participate in the annual remembrance ceremony, please contact the veterinary social worker by email at vtvetsocialworker@vt.edu or by phone at 540-231-5977.

Make a Gift

You may also choose to memorialize an animal by supporting the college with an online donation.
