Built when the Clark Freeport Zone was still a U.S. military air base, the K-9 Cemetery is a memorial for military police dogs that served alongside the military officers. 284 headstones bearing the names and identification numbers of each dog are arranged in rows surrounded by a chain fence.

The once-painted signboard identifying the cemetery is now blank while an empty pedestal once held a statue of a U.S. military officer and his dog companion. The statue was removed and sent to the U.S. after the Clark Air Base was abandoned during the 1991 eruption of nearby Mt. Pinatubo.
