6th ANNUAL BUTTERFLY RELEASE
Pay tribute to a special dog in your life and enjoy an afternoon in the company of dogs and dog-loving people. Release a butterfly in memory, bring a plant for the memorial garden, learn about milkweed and butterfly gardens, and enjoy a stroll along the bay!
Please join us on August 18th at 3pm, for the 6th Annual Remembrance and Butterfly Release sponsored by Friends of ElderDog Society. Proceeds from the Butterfly Release will help support Place to Paws™— a chapel-like building where people (and dogs) can honour the animal-human relationship and pay tribute to canine companions who have passed on. The grand opening of Place to Paws will follow this year's Butterfly Release.
In the company of friends, we will once again gather in ElderDog's beautiful memorial gardens. There we can reflect upon our time spent with canine companions, and celebrate the joy, love, friendship and humour with which they continue to enrich our lives.
Following a short, non-religious service, we'll release a kaleidoscope of butterflies to commemorate and celebrate all of our dogs, past, present and future.
The Butterfly Release is FREE to attend; however, if you'd like to release a butterfly, we recommend you BUY YOUR BUTTERFLY NOW! elderdogcanadastore.ca
Ceramic butterflies must be purchased by July 31st to ensure availability on the day of the Butterfly Release. Please note that if you can't attend the event yourself, one of our volunteers will gladly release a butterfly on your behalf.
Available again this year is a tiny, perfect wind chime. This small (6 in. total length), sweet-sounding wind chime can hang in your own home or in one of ElderDog's memorial gardens. Each time you hear its delicate ring, you will know that another dog has received a set of angel wings.
To celebrate the opening of Place to Paws, this year we are offering a special commemorative key ring. A precious paw print charm stamped with a tiny gold heart hangs alongside an angel wing on a sturdy metal alloy ring with swivel clasp. A beautiful way to carry a memory of a beloved canine with you at all times.
