The government has issued a tender for the construction of a National Pet Cemetery in Ta’ Qali.

The cemetery, which would be the island’s first, would be built in the San Gakbu area, limits of Attard, and include amenities such as a drainage system and hot and cold water.

It was issued by the Ministry For Animal Rights on behalf of the Animal Health and Welfare Department. Published yesterday, the deadline for tender submissions from interested parties is 16th February.

According to plans published alongside the tender, the cemetery will be a long, rectangular shape, with one entrance connected to the main road around Ta’ Qali.

Animal owners in Malta have been promised a pet cemetery for several years now, but the plans had reportedly been put on hold for since no business was interested in setting it up.

However, seeing as the cemetery was part of the Labour Party’s electoral manifesto, the government does seem to finally be getting around to making the island’s first national pet cemetery a reality.
