PAWS Pet Memorial Wall

Have you ever wondered if there's a place here in the Philippines where people can go to commemorate their pets who have passed away? Humans do it all the time in memorial parks and cemeteries where they occasionally visit the resting places of their relatives who have passed on. They light candles and offer flowers in honor and loving memory of their dead.

PAWS, in a project called the PAWS Pet Memorial Wall, has made such a thing possible by allocating a portion of its animal shelter, a.k.a. PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC), for its Pet Memorial Wall where humans/pet guardians/owners can dedicate memorial wall tiles for their pets who have moved on to the rainbow bridge.

This project is also meant to raise funds for the shelter as each tile (dimensions: 8 x 10 in.) costs Php 2,000 (approx. $40) inclusive of a four-line dedication with layout provided by PAWS (for approval by tile owner).

This is a pretty good way to create a lasting memorial to the pets that have been a significant part of our lives while at the same time reaching out a helping hand to the animals who are in dire need of our help at the shelter.

The shelter currently houses more than 130 cats and dogs, most of whom are looking for adoptive homes.

The Memorial Wall will be maintained for as long as the shelter stands.

For more information, please contact PAWS at philpaws @ yahoo.com. Thanks!

    Hi! I really love cats and dogs but sadly, I can't adopt one yet. I've always wondered, can I come and see/visit the cats and dogs in PARC? I would really want to say hi to them. :)

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ mefindhome.org if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. Blogger.com allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ mefindhome.org than to comment here. Thank you very much!
