Sheilagh R. Malo Pet Memorial Garden

We know that saying goodbye to a beloved pet is difficult. To help ease the pain, we invite you to consider the Sheilagh R. Malo Pet Memorial Garden for your pet’s final resting place. Your pet’s cremated ashes will be placed in a stainless-steel urn and interred in a space of your choosing in the garden. The entry will be capped with a granite plaque inscribed according to your wishes.

You may hold a graveside service at the time of interment, provided that you bring who and what you need to conduct a service that is suitable for you and your loved ones. You are also welcome to visit the memorial garden any time during our regular business hours.

Pet memorial garden burial is available for a donation of $500. This includes the urn, burial space and granite plaque. You can reserve a spot in advance for your pet with a $250 deposit. The remainder will be due at the time of interment. All revenue from these services goes towards caring for the animals at our shelters. We hope you will find comfort in knowing that your pet, even in death, is helping the homeless animals in our care.
