Timeless Tags Dog Memorial:


Grief that never fully goes away is experienced by all who have lost a beloved pet. With the Timeless Tags Dog Memorial, we still have a hole in our hearts, but no longer a hole in our lives – this unique sculpture makes up for that. It is a sculpture of many colors. One that celebrates the role that pets play in our lives. Just bring a tag that represents your beloved pet and place it on the sculpture with the hundreds of others.

“Dogs are not our whole life; but they make our lives whole.”

Roger Caras

Honor the animals that have brought you so much joy by participating in the Timeless Tags Dog Memorial Sculpture at Delnor Woods Park. This is a larger-than-life-size steel sculpture or a Labrador Retriever that is composed of welded steel loops of various sizes and depths, perfect to attach pet name tags to. Gray-colored at the outset, “Timeless Tags” will weather to a lustrous brown over time. 

The sculpture stands on a concrete pedestal upon which bronze plaques of various sizes are mounted. The plaques consist of name recognition for sponsors, from individuals and families to corporations and businesses. This memorial is the perfect way to show support for the tribute to the beloved family pet.
