Join us for our 39th annual Pet Memorial Day ceremony on Sunday, September 12th at 1pm at our Wantagh Pet Memorial Park. This annual ceremony is a loving tribute to the community’s departed companion animals and will include speakers, a candle lighting and a reading of dedications made in the memory of pets that have passed.
After the Pet Memorial Day ceremony, Bideawee will also be offering in-person guided walking tours of our Wantagh Pet Memorial Park. During the tour, walkers will explore the grave sites of many beloved pets who call Bideawee their final resting place, including Sarge, a Belgian Shepherd and army hero of the WWII Canine Corps; Checkers, the Cocker Spaniel credited with saving Richard Nixon’s political career in 1952; a giant 125-pound tortoise; a duck; a capuchin monkey; petit horses; and more. The tour will take place at 2pm following the Pet Memorial Day ceremony.
