     Many well-intentioned people opine that losing a pet is like losing a member of the family.  Dr. Damon Leigh, The Pet Pastor, respectfully submits that losing a pet is not like losing a member of the family... losing a pet is losing a member of the family.

     Just as when the sad and solemn occasion unfortunately arises with regard to the passing of a human family member, the need for comforting the people most affected and afflicted is paramount.  In the long history of humankind on this planet, each and every society has created its own traditional ceremonial manner of bidding farewell to departed loved ones.

     This serves several good and noble purposes.  It allows those of us left behind to express our affection and respect for the departed.  It also provides a salutary means of support in which family, friends and clergy may join together to give thanks to the Almighty for a dear one well loved and to celebrate a life well lived.  Moreover, such ceremony has the beneficial spiritual effect of establishing both a point of closure and finality and a point of new beginning.  Sadly but truly, after all is said and done, life must in fact go on.

     In your own personal hour of need, please remember that you are not alone.  You have your Almighty and Eternal Heavenly Father and a whole community of human family and friends who can and will be there to provide you with comfort and support.  By arranging a formal Memorial Service for your dearly departed pet, you will be providing yourself and others an opportunity to come together for the respectful purpose of expressing your shared love of and bereavement for your deceased animal companion.

     The Pet Pastor will be honored and privileged to conduct your beloved pet's final Memorial Service, wherein we, the assembled congregation, may commend the beautiful soul of your pet to Our Heavenly Father and beseech Him to lovingly look after the departed until the day of your reunion in Paradise.  Please contact Dr. Leigh when and if this need arises in order to schedule a Memorial Service either in your home or at your pet's final resting place.

     (PS - As a part of the Pet Pastor Memorial Service, your dearly departed pet will be permanently memorialized in the Green Pastures section of our website.  There you may view his/her photograph and read his/her cenotaph at any time and from anywhere.)

 
    
The Lord bless you and keep you.
May He show His face to you and have mercy.
May He turn His countenance to you and give you peace.
The Lord bless you!
St. Francis of Assisi
