SLOVAKIA’S first place of rest for departed pets has opened near Prievidza.

Mária Granecová, a 34-year-old nurse from Prievidza, launched the cemetery for animals in nearby Šútovce in mid-January. It is located on a 400-square-metre plot of land near the local cemetery, the SITA newswire wrote.

Granecová decided to open the pet cemetery when her poodle died and she had problems finding a way to lay it to rest. It took her almost a year to develop her plans.

The cemetery will be the final resting place for dogs, cats, hamsters, parrots and other pets. Funerals will cost Sk5,000 (Ř150). So far, four people have reserved graves for their pets.

There will be a wooden arbour in the cemetery where owners can say farewell to their pets. Costs for building the arbour and preparing the grounds are estimated at Sk100,000.
