Angels Rest is not about dying. Rather, it is an affirmation of life. Visitors here experience a deep calm. The chaos of the outside world seems to melt away as gentle breezes start a serenade of wind chimes. Animal statues dot the landscape - a napping cat, a smiling sheepdog, an elegant owl, and many others all keep watch over the pets who slumber in eternity. Over time, weather can take a toll on our statues, and they must be replaced. We thank you for your generosity.
"Play amongst the angels 'til we're all together again."
