On September 28th, South Lake Animal League (SLAL) unveiled their new Memorial Garden at their Adoption Center located in Groveland. The Memorial Garden is a place where people can honor their favorite pet, family, friend, loved one (human or animal), and leave a lasting legacy. Stepping stones alongside the pergola honor the work done by our Humane Education partners, PAWS Therapy dogs. A dog and cat statue, bird bath, plants and personalized memorial bricks now encompass this beautiful garden. Plans to expand this area include adding a picnic area, benches and additional personalized bricks. If you wish to purchase a personalized engraved brick, receive information for other naming opportunities, or volunteer your time to help expand and maintain the Memorial Garden, please contact fundraising@slal.org
