  • This pet thrown to the Heavens has been around for over a 100 years. It is certainly is the right place for those who love animals and want to see them burried in the right place and honored forever. They have mausoleums too. It's certainly touching to see how far people will go to remember their pets. Our friends have operated this family owned business since its inception. It even has a small funeral parlor so you can say good bye to your animal one last time. My family has four animals buried here, 4 dogs. Also, my Godparents has the most intelligent Dog I've ever met in my life resting here as well. 'Peppi!' God bring to Heaven our beloved friends. If you have a desire to bury your animal with some dignity, try this pet cemetery. Cheers!
  • I picked up my beloved Baby’s ashes earlier today. They placed her ashes in a black container covered in roses. My family flower is the rose. And she was a beautiful black doggy. They didn’t know that. What a happy coincidence! Anyway, Beautiful place.
