This coming Sunday, September 9, the Baltimore Humane Society will be hosting its first annual Pet Memorial Ceremony in observance of National Pet Memorial Day. The ceremony is for anyone who has experienced the loss of a beloved pet, no matter when or where the loss occurred. It will take place at Nicodemus Memorial Park at BHS’s location in Reisterstown, MD.
The ceremony will include readings and music.
I will also be present as a portrait artist creating quick sketches based on pet photos brought to the event. Portrait sketches will be $15, with 50% going to the Baltimore Humane Society. 10% of any larger pet portrait commissions initiated at or as a result of the event will also be donated.
The ceremony is free to attend, but an RSVP is requested. Find out more on the Baltimore Humane Society’s website.
