Path of Honor

Brick Ordering

Any and all species may be honored on the Path of Honor, including dogs, cats, horses, ferrets, birds, and exotic animals. Many donors inscribe their bricks as memorials to beloved pets. Some make dedications to family members, friends who deeply love animals, or veterinarians who share a special bond with their pet, while others simply inscribe their own name as a tribute to the human-animal bond.
