War dog to be buried at Hillside Acres

(Continued)

Max is the ninth war dog to be buried at Hillside Acre Cemetery which for 80 years has been operated by the MSPCA and is now the final resting place for 18,000 beloved companion and service animals.

Max died on Memorial Day in 2012 and Pelton kept his cremated remains.

Through the Heroes at Hillside program, military dogs such as Max are buried at no cost to their owner. Dave Gordon, who manages the cemetery for the MSPCA, said, “Max served his country with honor and proved just as noble and loyal a companion to Pam after his military service ended. He deserves our respect and we are proud to lay him to rest at Hillside Acre Cemetery.”
