Greenlawn Funeral Homes and Cemeteries will extend burials to pets with its new pet cemetery on Saturday, according to a news release.
The pet cemetery, named Precious Pet Garden, will be the only one currently in operation when it opens. It will open on Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. at the gates of Greenlawn Southwest, located at 2739 Panama Lane, according to the release.
"When a family loses a pet, it is like the loss of a family member," said Greenlawn president, Jim LaMar. "A pet is a loved one, and many people are looking for a permanent place to lay their cherished pet to rest. This new section will allow families to do just that."
The first animal laid to rest was LaMar's dog, KC. The pet cemetery will have space for 2,400 pets, according to the release.
