Dealing with Pet loss
We know that losing a pet can leave an impact greater than the loss of a family member or friend. After the loss of your animal, it is natural to feel grief and sorrow. Different individuals grieve differently and sometimes you need someone to talk to.
Here are some links and additional information that you may find helpful in dealing with the loss of your pet.
|Paw To Heart Animal Bereavement Support Services–
Offers monthly support groups free of charge to the community. Groups are open to anyone mourning the loss of an animal companion through death or separation. We also address euthanasia, quality of life issues and ‘universal grief.’ Educational literature isavailable at each meeting, and we often close with a guided imagery exercise.
