Your pet is your friend. You love and care for it as if it is a member of your family. After the loss of a pet, you may become overwhelmed with emotions and may experience grief in every sense of the word.

We at Sunset Hill want you to know that your sadness is a very natural feeling and nothing to be ashamed of. You are not alone, for we have lost very dear pets ourselves.

Our concern is that you understand that we do care. If there is anything we can do to help you or your family during this time, please don’t hesitate to call us at 656-3220 and we will gladly answer any question you may have.

How Old Are Pet Cemeteries?

Pet cemeteries are neither new nor a fad. They are as old as the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. Early Chinese Emperors maintained a dog cemetery at Peking with tombstones of marble, silver, and gold. There are currently pet cemeteries throughout the entire world in such cities as Paris, Edinburgh, London and Algiers.
