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.

First time attendees may download a registration form here and call our office to schedule an appointment.

This group meets on November 15 and December 20th.

Time:  6:30 to 8:00 pm

NOTE: There will be no Pet Bereavement groups for the month of September. New dates will be announced at that time.

Tax deductible donations are appreciated.
