Pet Loss Support Program

Honoring Transitions in the Human-Animal Bond


Join the fellowship of others who understand the unique grief that comes with losing a beloved animal companion. Please join us if you are feeling lost, isolated, or just want to be among others who understand. Our pet loss support program offers groups for people at all stages of mourning a beloved pet. Our groups are a place to learn about grief and tools to facilitate healing, in addition to the community of others missing a dear animal companion.
