The cemetery is located at 330 Book Rd E. in Ancaster.
This picture is from the parking lot of the APC.

This shows the actual address of the Ancaster Pet Cemetery located at 330 Book Road East in Ancaster. On many of the search engines when one looks for the address for the cemetery it will show as, 394, 500 or 508 Book Road West..... I have recieved many emails from folks that could not find the cemetery. Now I know why....

Directions .....

Go south on Glancaster road from Rymal Road to the first street on the right , This will be Book Road East. Go west on Book Road for exactly 2 km and the cemetery entrance will be on your left. You will see the sign reading 330 on a wood plate by the roadway.... I hope this helps those interested in going to the cemetery.....

There have been a few stories about the Ancaster Pet Cemetery, of strange noises, from growls or hissing to apparitions.

One story came from a man that wished to remain anonymous, who had a flat tire on Book Rd E in Ancaster on the 14th of Oct 1999 around 11 pm.
He pulled into the parking lot of the pet cemetery to change his tire. As he was about to take the tire off he heard a growl not too far behind. When he turned to look where the growling was coming from, he saw what appeared to be two red eyes looking back at him from the road. He stood up slowly to inch his way back to the drivers door. Then all of a sudden the eyes vanished.
Needless to say he changed his tire as quickly as he could and left right away.

The first thing you will notice when you enter the Ancaster Pet Cemetery is how well kept it is. Once inside you cannot escape the feeling of sadness for the pets that have died, and were buried here. The folks that loved their pets and put them here go all out to make sure their pet will be remembered. Many people leave the pet's favorite toy at the grave site.
Troy, a police dog from the Hamilton Police Dept is buried here. He lost his life in the line of duty. And what better honor than to be buried here among so many cherished animal friends.

This picture is of a beautifully marked grave of a cat that once brought joy to it's owner. For those that had a bond with their pets, I believe the spirit of the pet will always be with them.

Rows of pet graves line up in front of a small chapel at the back end of the cemetery. Could this be where the pet funeral services are held? Once we left there we could't resist hugging our dog when we got home.

Here is a poem for anyone that has lost a pet.

Beyond The Rainbow

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
