Bicol’s pioneer pet cemetery is now open to the public, for anyone that would like to give their dearly departed animal companions a proper burial.
Located within Farm Plate in Daraga, Albay, the property owner’s daughter Kristine Llaguno said that their family decided to open the cemetery after her pet dog Liki passed away last month.
Llaguno recounted how they had wanted to give Liki a decent burial and proceeded to do so behind the farm’s chapel, also known as the “smallest chapel in the Philippines”.
After posting about the burial on social media, Llaguno received many inquiries and requests from pet owners that also wanted their precious pets to be laid to rest at a beautiful and secure location.
According to Llaguno, the entire area is 260 square meters large and can accommodate a maximum of 30 burials. Package pricing starts at P9,000 and can go as high as P17,000. Buyers will be given five years of free access to visit their respective sites, subject to renewal afterward.
In related news, the hero dog Kabang of Zamboanga City, who jumped in front of a motorcycle to save his owner’s daughter and cousin resulting in the loss of her nose and upper jaw, passed away on May 17 in her sleep. Kabang was 13 years old, which is equivalent to 91 human years.
