The late artist Stephen Huneck founded The Dog Chapel in 2000. He wanted Dog Mountain to be a place where you could celebrate the faith, trust and friendship that dogs bring to the world.

There is a no leash law on Dog Mountain so all the visitors are free to play as they please.
The Dog Chapel has a remembrance wall where people can leave photos, notes and cards honoring their pets.
Last month my Aunt's dog Sam passed away and my mom ordered her The Dog Chapel. I emailed her Sally Goes to Heaven which Stephen Huneck wrote after losing his beloved dog Sally.
For those of you who have ever loved or lost a dog, I am sure you can understand that Dog Mountain is a truly special place. If you feel inclined to help Dog Mountain continue to operate you can make a donation on the website.
