Celebrate the Grand Opening of The Laurels Pet Cemetery

BALA CYNWYD - June 2018 - West Laurel Hill Cemetery has proudly served families for nearly two centuries. This June, West Laurel Hill Cemetery is pleased to announce the opportunity to serve pets in the same loving, respectful and exceptional way with the grand opening of The Laurels – Pet Cemetery, Services, and Aquamation Center.

On Thursday, June 28 from 6 to 8 p.m., WLHC will celebrate the official opening of The Laurels with a Yappy Hour ribbon cutting, set to take place at The Laurels Pet Center (225 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA). Guests will have the opportunity to learn more about the pet services offered, including pet packages, which provide dignified services and a final resting place for pets, as well as Aquamation – a water-based process which is a gentle and environmentally-friendly alternative to flame cremation.

“We are known for providing unrivaled support for families in memorializing their loved ones, and now we’re proud to say that includes their pets,” said Nancy Goldenberg, President and CEO of West Laurel Hill Cemetery and Funeral Home and Laurel Hill Cemetery. “Once again, we are demonstrating our edge by offering highly valuable and innovative services, in a beautiful setting with state-of-the-art technology.”

The Laurels Yappy Hour is free and open to the public. Well behaved pets are welcome! RSVP here by June 25th or email [email protected].
