 Our History

Dixie Memorial Pet Cemetery was established in 1992 by Barbara Wells after the death of Dixie, her beloved companion silky terrier of sixteen years. Since 1992, the cemetery has grown to be one of the largest and most beautiful pet cemeteries in the country. Dixie Memorial offers all services for pet aftercare with dignity and compassion. Formal burial and cremations are provided for pets in the same manner as any other family member.

Barbara is past President of the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories. The organization is a non-profit group of pet cemeteries and crematories in the U.S. and abroad, establishing and upholding the highest standards of ethical operating practices in the pet aftercare industry.

Located just two miles west of Millington, Tennessee, Dixie Memorial Pet Gardens is located on twenty-three acres of land in Shelby County. Dixie Memorial Pet Gardens offers beautiful countryside burial grounds for the Memphis area and neighboring communities.

Special Memorial Gardens

There are special memorial gardens for service animals (police dogs, "seeing-eye" dogs, search and rescue dogs, and other therapy assistance animals), our smaller companions (birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, etc.), and a special garden for cats only. There is an Urn Burial Section and a Scatter Garden for cremated pets.

Our gardens are maintained as a memorial to our beloved companion animals and to provide a place of peaceful reflection for owners, handlers, families, and those who love animals. The grounds are professionally landscaped and maintained, with an arbor beside a pond for peaceful reflection and time alone. There are several ponds and fountains and numerous statuary.

Individuals may participate in our Beautification Fund in memory of a beloved companion animal. The planting of bulbs, trees, shrubs, or the installation of park benches or statuary can be specified.
