Lanterns of Remembrance

Light a Lantern in Honor of a Loved One!

Celebrate and remember your loved ones by lighting a lantern in their honor during our first-ever Lanterns of Remembrance celebration! Make a donation and we’ll add your personalized message to a lantern as a tribute to your pet, friend, or family member.

Choose to have your lanterns placed at our War Dog Memorial, your own pet’s burial site, or the unattended burial site of a once-loved pet without family to visit.

Lighting of the lanterns will begin at dusk on Friday September 7th to kick off National Pet Memorial Weekend, staying lit throughout Sunday September 9th. Visitors will be welcome throughout the weekend to observe and share in the celebration.

Your gift to light a lantern will provide support for perpetual care of the grounds at Hillside Acre Animal Cemetery, as well as our Heroes at Hillside and K-9 Row, providing free burial for canine war veterans and police canines.
