TAZEWELL, Tenn. (AP) - A northeast Tennessee animal shelter is helping to build a pet cemetery in a move that will also fulfill a woman’s dying wish.

WBIR-TV (on.wbir.com/1uS6pNp) reports the Claiborne County Animal Shelter plans to develop a 1.5 acre parcel into what would be the area’s first cemetery for pets.

She says it will be named the Arnold Tom Gibson Memorial Pet Cemetery in honor of the woman whose idea it was.

The Claiborne Animal Shelter hopes to open the pet cemetery in early 2015.
