Regulating Pet Cemeteries

A new article focusing on the hot topic of pet cemeteries and land use in New York can be found here:

“Part I of this article discusses the growth of the pet industry in the United
States, including the increasing interest in pet cemeteries. Part II explores
how New York State, home to the oldest pet cemetery in the country,
regulates the business of pet cemeteries and recent changes to the law addressing the burial of human and pet remains together. Part III examines
how local governments can and do regulate the use of pet cemeteries through
local zoning, citing to current provisions in local zoning ordinances. The
article concludes in Part IV with a call for more local governments to consider how to best provide for permanent resting places for pets through local land use regulation.”
