Memorial Bricks

Become a part of Hinsdale Humane Society History


Please consider becoming a part of a very special limited time commemorative opportunity: The Carla E. Fisher Memorial Garden at the Pet Rescue and Resource Center operated by Hinsdale Humane Society.

We chose to dedicate our garden to Carla, in recognition of her dedication to the Hinsdale Humane Society and her passion for all animals. Ms. Fisher was an obedience instructor at HHS for many years. She was considered a friend, a mentor, an ambassador and an educator.

The Memorial Garden is a beautiful, serene area of the shelter, featuring shrubs, plants, benches and a custom brick patio. This peaceful location serves as a space for our pets and volunteers to unwind after a long walk, exercise or play time outside of the kennels.

Today, the garden is filled with loving words in honor of pets and people and is an inspiring place to visit. We invite you to purchase one of the customized, laser-engraved patio bricks, that will be added to the Carla E. Fisher Memorial Garden. Become a permanent part of our history! In years to come, you will be able to bring your children and grandchildren to view your legacy, all while helping homeless animals.
