The Hilltop at Abbey Glen Pet Memorial Park

The loss of a beloved pet can be an emotional and confusing experience. There are many aftercare options for consideration and the Abbey Glen team has long been committed to thoroughly explaining all options to each of our pet families – guiding them every step of the way to make informed decisions. At Abbey Glen, aftercare choices include individual cremation, group cremation or burial services. Pet owners who opt for individual cremation can choose if they would like to be present for a final viewing.

Our Pristine Pet Cemetery

Abbey Glen is not a traditional pet cemetery, but a pristine memorial park offering peaceful tranquility and ambiance for families and visitors throughout the year. Nestled on 14 landscaped acres in northern NJ, pet owners who select burial arrangements find it an idyllic sanctuary for the memorialization of their pet. Additionally, this property will always remain a final resting place for beloved animal companions due to a legally restricted deed.

Abbey Glen counselors assist clients with all the necessary arrangements, including selecting a casket and memorial marker. Various interment sections are offered, including below ground interment across our lawn areas or above ground interment in our Hilltop Columbarium.

One Pet Owner's Abbey Glen Experience

After the loss of Chloe, Passaic County resident Kristi spoke about her experience in planning her cat's burial services with Abbey Glen. "Carol, one of the Abbey Glen counselors, explained the entire burial process, costs and considerations. She didn't pressure me into any decisions and answered all of my questions" said Kristi.

Once the decision for a burial service is made, a viewing is scheduled for the pet in one of our private rooms, allowing time for a final farewell. Kristi recalls: "The next day, Abbey Glen offered a 30-minute viewing in a nicely decorated room. They cleaned Chloe's face up and she looked like an angel. They couldn't have been more respectful, gentle and accommodating of my need for a final goodbye."
