PCMC’s Pet Cemetery Ensures Decent Burial For Pets

While PCMC has 21 acres of land to bury dead animals, PMC is still struggling to set up incinerators to dispose of the bodies. Instead, the carcasses are dumped at the garbage depot in Uruli Devachi.
If the pet of a Pimpri Chinchwad resident dies, it will get a decent burial, but if a Pune resident loses his/her pet, it will be dumped in the garbage dump at Uruli Devachi. This is because the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has 21 acres of land in Nehrunagar for the burial of dead animals, while the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is yet to set up an incinerator to dispose of the bodies of dead pets.
PCMC’s veterinary officer, Dr Anil Gore says, “Anyone can bury their pet in PCMC’s Nehrunagar crematorium after paying the charge. This arrangement has been in place for the last five to six years.”
