The K9 Corps
Historic Congressional Cemetery
The K9 Corps at Historic Congressional Cemetery is private dogwalking program, bringing life, community, and volunteerism to this extraordinary burial ground. Dogwalking at the cemetery is permitted by membership only. Membership is annual and runs from March 1st through the last day of February the following year.
