"Clearly, this is a pet-friendly place, an impression confirmed as you walk past the cat statuettes placed by the door to the cemetery office and find that when you enter the office, Gidget Cody and Jack Barrett rush over to greet you." - ICCFA Magazine, Dec. 2013


Resthaven Memorial Gardens established Petland in 1974, after many of our property owners expressed dismay that there were no satisfactory options concerning final arrangements for their pets. Due to city regulations, housing developments,  homeowners associations etc..., digging a hole in the yard, was not a feasible option. In addition, as our society is more mobile, moving to new residences becomes more common.

The need for an establishment which could provide caring and dignified final arrangements for pets became obvious. 

We believe that pets are family too.  That's why we are proud to announce the expansion of our offerings to include the Garden of Faithful Friends.  We are currently the only cemetery in Maryland offering families the opportunity to be buried with their pet family members.
