Dog Chapel is located on Dog Mountain in Vermont, which is a 150-acre area open to people and their loyal friends; dogs. The chapel honors the bond between dogs and their owners and is dedicated to the pets who lost their lives.
It was opened in 2000 by Stephen Huneck and his wife Gwen. Stephen Huneck, after recovering from a life-threatening illness, wanted to build a chapel to celebrate the bond he and his wife had with their dogs, and it would be open to other people and their dogs as well. So he built the chapel on Dog Mountain, his mountaintop farm in Vermont, the United States. They also aimed to give comfort to pet owners who lost their little friends.
The chapel resembles a small traditional church built in the 1820s with its white and plain exterior. The white steeple points up to the heavens and on top of it, there is a dog with wings to emphasize the special bond this chapel has with dogs. There are various dog sculptures scattered around the area. Inside, there are stained glass windows with images of dogs pieced into them. The walls of the chapel are filled with notes people have written to their dogs and other pets.
