Dorothy Hall, MS, RN
Dorothy has been facilitating pet loss support groups twice monthly for over ten years.
Losing a pet or the thought of losing a pet can be a very painful, confusing and frightening experience. An important part of your life is gone and you may be unsure about how to cope with your feelings.
By meeting with others in the Pet Loss Support Group you can begin to answer some of your questions and learn ways to cope with the pain. The Pet Loss Support Group is available at no charge to anyone who needs it. You do not need to call before attending and you may come to as few or as many sessions as you wish.

Jane Miller is a clinical psychotherapist and licensed independent social worker. She is also a psychiatric service dog trainer - a pioneer in the field! She has helped people with a wide range of psychological issues, but her background, experience and love of animals attest to her understanding of pet loss.
Ms. Miller helps her clients through all phases of the grieving process and the ebb and flow of the mixture of emotions that may arise. These might include sadness, anger, guilt, depression and feeling abandoned. She assists her clients with psychiatric service dogs in preparing for the retirement of their PSD, getting their successor dog when the time is right for the individual, and the preparations necessary to plan for their PSD's death. She has over the years had clients referred to her by veterinarians after the death of their animals and has provided individual therapy, as well as group therapy.

The nature of the bond or attachment we form with our pets differs per person, but for many the power of that bond is realized when they mourn the loss of their beloved companion animal. Our feelings of grief can be further intensified by the circumstances surrounding our pet’s loss, as well as the insensitivity of well meaning others who may not understand that bond. The pet loss experience is further complicated as the bereft pet owner experiences isolation, self-doubt and confusion about their emotional reaction. It is my sincere desire to help you through this very difficult time.
