Pet Cemetery

It is a very natural emotion to mourn the death of all beloved creatures. Part of the grieving process may be for some people to know that the pets who they have loved in this life have found a resting place; a place of memory, where all God’s creatures, great and small, can be celebrated and remembered.

A Cemetery for All God’s Creatures at the Historic Church of Saint Andrew in Richmondtown on Staten Island may be just the right place for you to grieve and mourn, but also to find solace and peace after the death of your beloved pet. Situated at the end of the historic cemetery of St Andrew’s, A Cemetery for All God’s Creatures provides a calm, serene and picturesque place for meditation. The cemetery is cared for by a proficient and competent staff who are sensitive to your needs and concerns.

Each plot measures 1 foot square and can hold up to 4 pets. At the time of internment pets may be memorialized through a service of prayer and reflection. Family members are encouraged to visit their beloved pets resting place and may place flowers, or other significant symbols by their grave. A personally engraved stone identifies each plot.

A shrine to St Francis of Assisi (The universal patron of all of God’s Creatures) is the center of a memorial patio, where stones may be engraved to remember a loved animal who may be buried at another location.
