Pet Loss Support Program
The loss of a pet can be one of the most devastating experiences that an individual or family has to face. For many, this is a loss not only of a pet, but of a best friend. DoveLewis realizes that, in our society, each of us is expected to minimize our sorrow for our lost pet. However, feelings linger long after the loss, because our pets shared our lives, dreams, homes, and affections. And because they touched our lives so deeply, they are deserving of our grief.
Grieving for a beloved pet is a very natural, normal, and personal process. The manner and intensity of our reactions to this loss will be different for each person. Our reactions will depend on the circumstances surrounding the death, our depth of attachment to the pet, our personal experiences with grief, and our state of mind when the loss occurs.
Please Note: This program is designed to help people whose pets have passed away. It is in no way a part of our Lost & Found Pet Database.
