The Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital will honor animals, big and small, that have passed away at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 23 in the Animal Cancer Center, Room 118/120.


This annual event serves to honor the furry lives that have touched the hearts of the CSU community. The event will feature a formal program, including a slideshow of pet photos, followed by a reception. Guests are also free to roam the Path of Honor, a walkway of engraved stones dedicated to pets, and reflect on the lives that have impacted their lives.

The event is sponsored by the university’s Argus Institute, a service designed to assist hospital clients through tough decision-making regarding their pet’s health.
