Tails from the Crypt: Animal Lovers Tour and Dog Walk
April 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
In 1867, the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was only the second humane society to have organized in the nation. The group was formed in Philadelphia, and paved the way for dozens of other rescue organizations dedicated to the city’s furry friends. Pet-friendly Laurel Hill Cemetery encourages the public to bring their animals along for this springtime walking tour. Stories and stops will include one of the first court cases to rule against animal cruelty, pets memorialized in stone, and the woman who bestowed a portion of her will to her dearest dogs.
The walking tour will take place on Saturday, April 14 at 11am, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse. The cost is $15/person; $13/students and seniors; or $12/members. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.
