Virtual Pet Loss Support 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
  • Please note that the meeting is held at 7pm (PST).
  • This meeting will be conducted through GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting 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 GoToMeeting session one hour prior to the meeting.
    • For those who have not used GoToMeeting before,  click here to learn how to download the app prior to the session.
  • This session will be limited to 12 people so that everyone feels they have an opportunity to participate.


Tuesday, August 10 | 7-8pm (PST) 

*Registration will close one hour before the meeting so the link can be sent ahead of the meeting*

For those who have already registered, we understand that plans can come up that affect your attendance at this event. Please email us at if you are unable to make it so we can open the space to another who is seeking the support of the group. Thank you.
