Cedar Hill Pet Memorial Project
A promise made...a promise kept
"A promise made ... a promise kept" is about the many families who lovingly laid their pets to rest in the Pet Memorial Park in Cedar Hill, Texas. The burial plans made for our pets, who ARE our family members, are promises that cannot be broken. Headstones and markers with names of these beloved family members, some dating back to 1943, were once in danger of being forgotten or worse.
To save this beautiful place of memories, the Cedar Hill Pet Memorial Project, Inc. was forged by a group of concerned citizens and pet lovers, many with pets buried in the park. And through the enormous support of citizens like you, the park has been saved and will now become a permanent place of peace and beautiful rest for our beloved pets. BUT WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP AS THERE IS MUCH WORK TO BE DONE!!

With the success of the PETCO Foundation Tree of Hope campaign we are looking forward to completing the Plaza area of the War Dog Monument. The circular area is the portion to be added.
A special Thank You to PETCO store Manager Joey Carranza for his determination and drive to help raise funds. With Joey's hard work and efforts we hope to receive enough funds from the PETCO Foundation Tree of Hope campaign to finish the War Dog Monument Plaza area.
Joey and PETCO continue to be one of our biggest and most favorite supporters.
It is with great sorrow we announce that a friend has passed over "The Rainbow Bridge". "Buddy", a Louisiana State Fire Marshal detector dog, retired on January 1, 2015 and within a couple of weeks he passed away. Buddy's partner and handler, Captain Ric Abbott, is a good friend of Elizabeth Haley. Elizabeth serves on the CHPMP Board as Special Advisor.
The War Dog Monument is dedicated to honor dogs such as Buddy. They serve and protect us and all they ask in return is for our love, affection and that we care for them. We at CHPMP feel the sadness and loss that Captain Ric Abbot is going through.
