Baltimore Humane Society Pet Cemetery - Reisterstown, MD
Losing a pet can be a very painful time for anyone. We recognize that pets are family. They come into our lives and bring tremendous joy and happiness, and when they leave, they often impart a great sadness upon us. We understand and are here to help.
Baltimore Humane Society offers memorial services and a final resting place for your pets at its pet cemetery, located on the grounds of our Wildlife Sanctuary. Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park provides a serene setting for individuals to remember and share their love for a beloved family pet. We also offer a variety of bereavement support services and tributes to remember and honor your pet.
An Extension of Your Care
Providing a final place for your friend to rest, or a memorial recognition at Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park does more than demonstrate your love for your pet. It also shows your compassion and understanding for the pets in our care at the Humane Society, as all proceeds from our memorial services support the life-saving efforts of the Humane Society’s adoption and spay/neuter programs. Your final gesture of love for your pet helps assure the life and love of many more pets at the Humane Society. Thank you.

Bereavement Support Group
The Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park holds a monthly bereavement group to help you cope with the loss or extreme illness of a pet. Anyone whose pet has passed away, been lost, sick or dying is welcome to join the group at any time. Members take comfort in sharing with others going through the same difficult experience.
The group is a safe haven where individuals can freely talk about their pets knowing others are interested in hearing their stories. It is a place of emotional and practical support helping participants cope with their loss. Please join our free, non-denominational group, led by a Certified Bereavement Counselor. You do not need to have your pet buried in Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park to join the group. All are welcome! Read more in an article about the group.
The group meets the first Tuesday evening of each month at 7 pm for one hour.
