As pet parents ourselves, we understand that your pet is a valued and engaging member of your family. When a loss occurs, a huge void is created in your daily life. Whether it is suddenly or after a long illness, it can be difficult to cope with the deep feelings of grief and loss that occur. Many times a pet loss support group can offer genuine comfort and support during an emotionally difficult time. On the first Tuesday of each month from 7:30 - 8:30 p.m., Deceased Pet Care provides a comfortable environment for grieving pet owners to freely express their sorrow. This free service is designed to help heal the heartache and sadness associated with the loss of a cherished pet.
This FREE Pet Loss Support Group is designed for adult pet parents who have experienced the loss of a beloved pet. Counselor Jennifer Wilmoth, who will facilitate the Pet Loss Support Group, is a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (LAMFT). She has spent a number of years providing family counseling services which include grief therapy and recovery. Jennifer knows that times of loss can provide tremendous opportunity for growth. As an avid pet lover and mom to her own furry four-legged family member, Molly, Jennifer truly understands the important relationship we experience with our pets in our daily lives and the unconditional love shared.
Our monthly group is beneficial if you are a bereaved pet parent who is:
• Feeling lost without your trusted companion;
• Unsure how to explain to a child about the death of their loyal pal;
• Thinking family and friends fail to understand your unhappiness;
• Speculating on whether it is too soon to adopt another pet;
• Experiencing ongoing grief from the loss of your pet companion;
• Preparing for the passing of your pet or considering euthanasia.
Come and share your story, or just listen and receive support from others who understand what it means to lose a pet. We will explore the grief process and learn ways to let go and move forward in a meaningful way that pays tribute to your beloved pet. Together we can get through the grieving process and start the recovery process.
