The Glendale Cemetery in Akron, Ohio is now allowing pet owners and their beloved pets to be buried together. Pet owners can cremate their pets to be buried in their lots.
John Frank, president of the Friends of Glendale Cemetery board of trustees, said they decided to adopt this new policy because of the numerous requests by pet owners who want to be buried with their pets.
”There are societal changes in our country. Household pets are very important to people. With the changing times, the lot owner who wishes to bury the cremated remains may do so,” Frank said.
The cost for the service is $350, plus the cost of the lot. Flat makers for the pet sites will be permitted, but dog or cat statues will not be allowed.
