Santa Fe Animal Shelter final call for 2015 Pet Calendar. This is a chance for you to immortalize your pet and support SFAS at the same time.
I submitted the photo of my Siamese cat Sanya, I took 6 months before he passed away at his 25, into 2014 Pet Calendar. After he passed away in June 2014, I ordered private cremation at Santa Fe Animal Shelter. SFAS employee was very helpful and professional. I did not know what to do with a little metal box with remains of my beloved cat.
There is no special Pet Cemetery in Santa Fe in short distance, where I can bury my cat and come back to visit him. We do have All Creatures Memorials park, which is peaceful and quiet place to visit. In a same time I wanted to let all world know, that my cat Sanya made his 25 years, he lived with me for 25 years, he traveled with me from Russia to New Mexico. I felt that would be right thing to honor his memory in our animal community and share it with other pet lovers. It also helped me to cooperate with my grieving process. Thank you SFAS, for offering the option to publish deceased pet photo in the Pet Calendar.
The photo of this Lobos lover bulldog Gator I took while pet sit with him and his 8 furry family members in 2013. The photo was kindly submitted by his owner to the Pet Calendar 2014.
