Buy a Plaque

Paradise Islands are kiosks within my park that house commemorative plaques for people’s beloved pets – and even some canine officers. It is remarkable to have so many animals remembered here in my tranquil and unique park … and the plaques are not just for dogs – there are cats, a snake – and even a pig from Alaska!
