Fate of remains at shuttered Michigan pet cemetery uncertain

December 11, 2018

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — An attorney for owners of a shuttered Michigan pet cemetery says the property is being put up for sale and a new owner will eventually determine the site’s future.

Heavenly Acres pet cemetery in Livingston County’s Genoa Township closed after its lease expired Sept. 30. A township official has said there could be up to 74,000 animal remains buried there.

Shari Pollesch, an attorney representing Carol Street Park Ridge LLC, says in an email to the Livingston Daily Press & Argus the company is “sensitive to the concerns” of those with pets buried at the property. She says the company hopes to find a buyer “willing to continue to maintain the pet cemetery.”

Pollesch says pet owners can retrieve grave markers or pet remains after making arrangements through her firm.
