A Peaceful, Park-Like Pet Cemetery Just a Short Drive From Passaic County


Abbey Glen's 14-acre Pet Cemetery

Abbey Glen's pet cemetery is on 14 landscaped acres and surrounded by an additional 60 acres of land to create the most idyllic sanctuary for the memorialization of animals. Designed in 1982 by the chief architect of the U.S. Veterans Cemeteries, the cemetery is a source of pride and comfort for families. With its park-like setting and peaceful ambience, Abbey Glen encourages families with children and pets to come and enjoy the trails and awe-inspiring views.

Flo W. from West Milford, NJ, recently experienced the loss of her beloved pet. She reflected on her experience at the Abbey Glen Pet Memorial Park: "At Abbey Glen, there is nothing but compassion, concern for your well-being, care and consideration shown to you and your beloved furry family member. It was the first time I was at Abbey Glen in person. The place and grounds are so beautiful they seem magical. It is obviously a place built purely on heart and love. You can feel it as you walk the grounds."

Abbey Glen's grounds offer visitors so many ways to enjoy peace and pay tribute to the unique relationships that exist between man and animal – including serenity trails, beautiful sculptures, monuments, memorials and a hilltop gazebo. In October of this year, Abbey Glen became the home for the exclusive U.S. reproduction of the life-sized Hachi-kou and Professor Ueno statue.

"As heartbreaking as the reason why you are at Abbey Glen, it is the most beautiful, loving, magical, compassionate and breathtaking place I have ever been" said Flo. Visitors are welcome in the park from dusk to dawn all year.

We invite you to visit and experience the beauty and serenity our pet cemetery offers.
