Aspin Hill Memorial Park is owned and run by the Montgomery County Humane Society. Approximately 55,000 pets are buried there. Dogs are the most numerous, followed by cats. There are also horses, birds, snakes, rabbits, hamsters, turtles, frogs, squirrels, and other less traditional pets, such as a skunk and a woodchuck. There are also at least 50 humans who chose to be buried at the cemetery with their pets.
Aspin Hill Cemetery for Pet Animals was established in 1920 by Richard and Bertha Birney, who also ran a kennel on the property. The Birneys named their business and property “Aspin Hill," from the name of a famous dog kennel in England and not from the surrounding community, which is called “Aspen Hill.” Over the years, the name was changed to Aspin Hill Pet Cemetery. In the late 1980s, it was renamed Aspin Hill Memorial Park.
