Jefferson Memorial’s most unique and modern garden is a garden for pets and their parents.
The passing of a pet can leave a family with an aching heart, much the same as the loss of a family member or dear friend. What pet owners have been asking for is here: a final resting place for your beloved pet that has given you unconditional love and companionship all their lives. We all love our pets and want to know they are in a safe and respectful place.
If you are unable or uncomfortable transporting your pet to the cemetery, we will pick him/her up from your home or veterinary hospital and set up a convenient time to meet with you at the cemetery.
Please note: all pet burials require a casket or alternative container.
Our facility is staffed from 9am to 4:30pm Monday through Saturday. We request that you call ahead to 412.655.4500 so we are prepared to give you our undivided attention in receiving your pet. If you should need us at a time when we are not staffed the answering service will have a member of our pet staff return your call.
Many pet parents find that having a period of visitation with their pet before interment is just as important as those mourning the loss of a human companion. The visitation process can be a healthy aid when grieving your pet and is a process that promotes healing. Jefferson Memorial Cemetery has provided a comfortable place where family, friends and other pets can gather for sharing and support.
Pet owners can either purchase a single lot for their pet OR purchase property within the garden for themselves to be buried with or near their beloved pet.
You can pre-purchase for your pet just as you have done for yourself. If you have already purchased at Jefferson and have no interments you may transfer lots to the Garden of Faithful Friends at no additional cost.
