Virtual Pet Loss Support Group Meeting


Virtual Pet Loss Support Group Meeting

The loss of a pet can be devastating. For many, this is a loss not only of a pet but of a best friend. Pets shared their lives, dreams, homes, and affections with us and because they touched our lives so deeply, DoveLewis believes they are deserving of our grief.

Grieving for a pet is a natural, normal, and personal process, and group support can be a helpful outlet. During each session, Debrah Lee, a licensed clinical social worker and the director of the DoveLewis Veterinary Well-being Program will lead the group in discussions that will open up opportunities to reflect, share, listen, and heal at your own pace.  

Virtual Meeting: What to Expect

  • This meeting will be conducted through Zoom. Zoom sessions allow anyone participating to see the participants who have shared their camera, to speak to the group, and to hear anyone speaking.
  • You will receive an email with a link to a Zoom session one hour prior to the meeting.

    • For those who have not used Zoom before,  click here to learn how to download the app prior to the session.

  • Please plan to join the meeting at the scheduled time. To be respectful to those that are sharing, the meeting will be locked from entry 15 minutes after we are scheduled to begin. You will not be able to join the group after that time.

  • To respect everyone who is joining the group and sharing, we ask that participants commit to staying the duration of the meeting as it is scheduled.
