While I was in The City last week I stopped and took some photos at the Presidio Pet Cemetery. Located under the elevated roadway of the Presidio Parkway (formerly known as Doyle Drive), it is the final resting place for over 400 pets of the military families who lived on the base.
Dogs, cats, birds, rodents, fish, and assorted reptiles have been laid to rest here since the 1950s. When the demolition of the old roadway and the construction of the new parkway began, measures were taken to protect the headstones and markers of the cherished animals.
No new internments are allowed and plans are underway to preserve this historical site.
