Pine Ridge Pet Cemetery

Established in 1907, the historic Pine Ridge Pet Cemetery is situated on the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s (ARL) 27-acre campus in Dedham, Massachusetts. Due to operational limitations, Pine Ridge Cemetery is no longer offering the sale of new burial plots and in-house private cremation services.

We will accommodate clients seeking private pet cremations through contracted services with Final Gift . For those seeking pet burial services, we can refer you to other reputable local organizations.

ARL is committed to the perpetual care of our forever friends who occupy the nearly 17,000 existing lots.
