Aruba Pet Cemetery

On the southeast coast of Aruba, there is a unique feature, a Pet Cemetery! It’s been there for over 100 years and is a treasured part of Aruba’s history and culture.

In the morning this is an “ideal” place to catch the sunrise in Aruba, however you will stumble across a place with little crosses and handmade headstones everywhere. This is Aruba’s cemetery for beloved pets who had passed away.

I thought, what a wonderful idea! We have nothing like this in Canada. Everyone must come up with their own “burial” arrangements for their fur family. Being a softy, this gave me another reason to love Aruba – they had a special place they used as a pet burial ground. Everyplace should have one!
