Pet Loss Support / Bereavement

This is a difficult topic to speak about. No matter how hard you try to prepare for the loss of a loved one it still impacts us deeply. Our furry friends enrich our lives and add that special something. Sometimes we need to be supported and guided through the process.


The following support groups are free and open to the public.


During the covid19 period, in-person meetings have been suspended. They are now offering sessions on-line only. Check with each of these groups to see how you can register and to get their revised schedules.
