About Us 


Happy Tails Pet Cemetery

​Historical Paxtang Cemetery was established in 1898 on what used to be the Thomas Rutherford Farm on Paxtang Ave. There are thirty-three beautiful acres of rolling hills, gentle slopes and level lands.  Twelve wooded acres are dedicated to the Green Burial area called The Wood's Edge.  The property adjoins the Capital Area Greenbelt on the west side and Paxtang Ave. on the East Side.

   Monuments are designed to hold forever in sacred memory the name it bears. No matter what kind of tribute you want to create, we can 
help ...every life deserves a memorial.  
   A permanent tribute to a life lived ties us to the past and gives us the springboard to our future.  If we can help you create a meaningful tribute for yourself or a loved one, please let us know.  It would be our priviledge to serve you.
   Paxtang Cemetery has been erecting memorials, both granite and bronze, for well over 100 years. Our memorials are made of the finest quality granite (from all over the world) or bronze free from defects and the top quality memorial which you desire. 
   Tell us your story and allow us to create a custom monument that will speak for you for generations to come.

Our pets are more than our pets but a significant part of our family.  They are our confidants that make us laugh when we are down, are healing when we are sick, and a joy to share our lives with.  So when they leave us, we are truly losing part of our family.  We have pets and know how difficult it is to lose your special friends and how overwhelming it can be to make decisions during this time.
To help ease your mind during your time of loss, we have created some packages and options to commemorate your pet. We offer a quiet meditation garden of rest, caskets, urns, custom ganite memorials, and various other services to meet your family's needs. Ask us about options on how you and your pet can be placed together.
