:: Presidio Pet Cemetery ::

Today as I was on my way through the Presidio to Crissy Field to scope out some stuff for my Crawfish boil that’s coming up, I spotted the Presidio Pet Cemetery that you see here. I had heard about this small plot a few years ago, but had forgotten about it. This resting place has been around for over 50 years, and is the final home for not only dogs and cats, but pigeons, rabbits, macaws, hamsters, goldfish and lizards.

Alot of the markers resemble military style epitaphs, and given that the Presidio was once a military base, it makes sense. There was something really calm about this little area in the park, but it was also right underneath the highway leading to the Golden Gate Bridge.. so you could hear the “tha-thump….tha-thump…..tha-thump..” of the cars passing overhead. At least it wasn’t a thwack over the head like you might receive in some other pet cemeteries… uGh!
