Lagos Council completes expansion of local pet cemetery

Lagos Council has completed the expansion of the town’s pet cemetery which has seen its capacity “practically double”.

The cemetery, which was inaugurated in 2017 after a proposal for its construction won a majority of votes under the Orçamento Participativo (people’s budget), now boasts an additional 36 burial units – four for larger animals, 25 for medium-size animals and seven for smaller pets.

The works cost just over €17,000 and were completed in two months.
