The life-size monument will be featured prominently on Abbey Glen's 14-acre cemetery in Lafayette, NJ and unveiled during a dedication ceremony Sunday, October 9th at 12:00pm.
"The meaning behind this statue aligns well with Abbey Glen's mission – to memorialize the unique and valued relationships that exist between man and animal," said Derek Cooke, president of family-owned Abbey Glen. "We're honored to have been selected as the home for what is a true symbol of the human - animal companion bond. We know that all of those wonderful and compassionate people whom we serve will enjoy the statue for years to come," he concluded.
The statue unveiling and dedication will take place on October 9th at 12:00pm, at Abbey Glen Pet Memorial Park, 187 Route 94, Lafayette, NJ, with special presenters Ambassador Reiichiro Takahashi from the Consul General of Japan in New York City, along with Mrs. Yumi McDonald the author of "Reminiscence of Shibuya".
After all these years, Hachiko continues to remind us of the passionate bond with our animal friends!
