The War Dog Memorial located in Hartsdale Pet Cemetery was erected in 1923 to pay tribute to the 7,000 military canines who assisted wounded soldiers on the battlefield as Red Cross Mercy Dogs during World War I. The bronze shepherd standing at attention atop the 10-ton granite monument is draped in a Red Cross blanket with a soldier’s canteen and dented helmet resting near his front paws. Leashed sog are permitted to visit the memorial.
