Honoring the Sacred Worth of All Animals


Companion Animal Loss Support Group

The Companion Animal Loss Support Group is a safe, confidential, structured place where those bound by the experience of the impending loss or death (recent or long ago) of a companion animal can come together. Gather to share stories, receive validation of feelings and concerns, learn about grief and the mourning process, and reflect on the meaning of it all. All are welcome.
