Tails from the Crypt: Animal Lovers Tour and Dog Walk

Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 1:00 PM

Who wants to go for a WALK? Do YOU want to go for a WALK? Let’s go for a WALK! Pet-friendly Laurel Hill Cemetery reverberates with the spirit and influence of animals, especially domestic. In 1867, the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals—formed in Philadelphia—was only the second humane society to have organized in the nation and it led to many other rescue organizations dedicated to the city’s working and companion animals. A number of their human champions are buried in beautiful Laurel Hill Cemetery. Learn about them on this springtime walking tour as we navigate undulating grounds, ascending and descending the terraced landscape. Pets, please bring your humans, be sure they have comfortable footwear, and be sure they bring your leash.

This walking tour will take place on Sunday, April 28, at 1:00 pm departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19132. Pets are welcomed but must be leashed at all times and cleaned up after. Free parking is located across the street from the main entrance. The cost is $15/person, $13/seniors and students, and $12/members.
