Our History

Barbara Wells began Dixie Memorial Pet Gardens back in 1992 as a way to remember her cherished pet terrier, Dixie. Eventually, the small memorial grew into one of the largest and most beautiful pet cemeteries in the country. Today, Dixie Memorial Pet Gardens is a trusted choice for pet aftercare. We provide burial ceremonies, cremations, and any other services you need to remember your friend. 

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.
