Pet Bereavement Support Program

When I look into the eyes of an animal I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.

~ A.D. Williams

Losing a treasured animal companion can be as every bit as painful as losing a dear friend or member of the family.  People experiencing this special kind of grief often feel isolated  in their sadness and loneliness.

The Pet Bereavement Support Program offers a place to learn about your grief and to discuss tools to manage your experience in addition to the community of others missing a dear pet.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • When will I feel better?
  • Feeling like you heard, saw or felt your departed pet
  • Did I do all I could for my pet?
  • When is it time to get a new pet?

There is no fee to attend. Registration is required.
