This audio and some of the photographs was recorded/photographed by the Merced Sun-Star Newspaper. The Sun-Star published an audio/gallery interview with Linda Tiller of Franklin Pet Cemetery on Friday, July 29, 2011. Other photos and imagery were supplied by DevinePortfolio.com.


Owner, Linda Tiller has been passionate about pets her entire life. After a 25 year career in the ambulance industry she purchased Franklin Pet Cemtery & Crematory from her uncle, Don Rogers, in 2000.


In the late 80's, Don realized there was no a pet cemetery between Fresno and Sacramento. Additionally, one of the only cremation services for domestic pets offered at the time as far north as Sacramento and as far south as Los Angeles. Don purchased land in 1988 and opened Franklin Pet Cemetery in 1990.


Franklin Pet Cemetery is proud and honored to provide cremation and/or burial services to local residents. The folks at Franklin Pet Cemetery know how much one can love a pet and they believe all animals should be treated with honesty, dignity and respect right through to the very end.
