Pet Loss Support
If ever there was a place that appreciates how important your pet was to your family, its here. See what options there are to connect with other owners or process your grief.
Bring a photo of your pet to share with a group of like-minded people. Group support lasts one hour and is a free community service.
Memorial Art Workshop
Research shows that art and healing come from the same source. Workshops are free and are focused on projects that memorialize your pet.
Service of Remembrance
Honor the undeniable bond between humans and companion animals as we light candles in memory of those who are no longer here.
Navigate the grief of losing a pet with the personal experiences and perspectives of our Pet Loss Support Program team and participants.
