They Mattered and Grief is normal.

Bo Paws It Forward is a non profit that provides grants for pet guardians in need of medical or behavioral care for their dogs and are facing temporary hardship or limited income. We recently added the Separate Soul Mates pet loss support services that benefit our programs. 


Our rates:  We are here for you at no cost. Donations made to Bo Paws It Forward are appreciated as that is one way we are able to provide services for pet parents and the community. Our community is a large one with pet parents seeking support all across the U.S. 

These visits are where we delve into how I can help you best. Usually its simply having someone listen-really listen to what you miss about your beloved pet or perhaps help you process the helplessness and anger. I have a lot of life experience with loss since my adult life has been dedicated to rescue, animal welfare and hospice fostering. I also have a unique skill set with natural empathy that led me to pet loss classes, workshops and certfication. 

Pet loss is a very disenfranchised grief and we are working to change that with community and a promise of judgement-free communication. 

Sessions are offered by Zoom, phone call, and email. On our website, we have a Pet Loss Support intake form -any information you want to share helps me prepare on how best to help you.

We do not have a set schedule for sessions so that I can work with you as soon as you need. Email support is offered 7 days a week- I check my email between 8-9 Am (eastern standard time) , 1-2 pm and 6-7 PM. If you send me an email within those hours, YOU WILL get a response. Email: OR

Besides being a licensed psychologist, I am an animal lover who personally knows the pain of losing a beloved companion animal. I have been shocked how many therapists do not understand the deep connections that we can have with animals. There is nothing wrong with you if you are missing your fur baby or are worried about losing them. Together we can process the memories you had with them as well as regrets that you may have. In addition, if you are struggling with other concerns such as anxiety, depression, or past trauma we can discuss those issues as well.  To schedule an appointment, go to my website: or find me on Facebook or Instagram (Therapy For Pet People). I offer a free 15 minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit to work together.

Karen Jaques, Dip Counselling & Advanced Major in Grief & Loss


Pet Loss Counselors / Specialists


Majoring in Grief and Loss Karen has a high level of understanding of the stages of Grief & Loss through her own personal experiences.

Karen says “When I lost my 18 year old cattle dog, Lucy, even as a Grief Counselor myself,  I needed someone to help me make sense of what I was thinking and feeling. My own grief put me on the path to help others.I found there were not many Counseling services in this area that came with formal qualifications in training. It was imperative to me that I found a course that reflected and supported my own way of thinking concerning pet loss. One that empathizes, takes it very seriously, and also incorporates some level of spirituality. On this quest I finally managed to find The APLB who offered a course that mirrored my way of thinking and also had a strict and high standard of excellence”.

Karen is one of only a few Counselors in Australia that is certified in Pet Loss and Bereavement and is currently working with the APLB as Chairperson and Chat roomHost.

Her philosophy is believing that when you gain an understanding of what you are experiencing you can then move forward to find peace, resolution and healing….

New York, 10001

As an animal lover, I recognize the deep bond that is possible between humans and animals, and have experienced the heartache and despair when this bond is broken by a pet’s death. The sadness and overwhelming emptiness that is experienced can be difficult to face alone, especially in a society that is often quick to dismiss the significance of the relationship – it’s never “just a pet.” If you are struggling to move through your loss, let me help you work through your grief.

I am a licensed psychotherapist (LCAT, LPAT), board certified art therapist (ATR-BC) and animal lover in private practice in New York City. I have been trained in pet loss and bereavement counseling by the Association of Pet Loss and Bereavement, and have extensive experience helping people cope through the loss of a pet.

Additionally, as a mental health practitioner, I am trained to help process and explore any related issues or unresolved losses that the loss of a pet might activate.

I currently offer individual pet loss counseling and therapy sessions via a HIPAA compliant video platform. As a therapist, I am only licensed to see folks remotely who are located in New York or New Jersey.

Of the many types of relationships that I specialize in as a licensed marriage and family therapist, the one dearest to my heart is the relationship between dog and man. There exists a special bond that many people in their lives are lucky enough to experience. Along with this special attachment comes immense responsibilities. Out of these responsibilities comes pure joy but also wrenching heartache. Pets rely on us for their care; we rely on them for their loyalty, unconditional love, companionship and amazing ability to understand our emotions. When one or both can no longer hold up their end, intense sorrow, guilt and loss is experienced like none other. I will help support you through these hard times. Good people should not have to suffer from being Dog’s/Cat’s Best Friend.

I currently see clients on-line from anywhere in California.

Hello, I am Janice Shapiro, Marriage and Family Therapist. For those of us who have had the privilege of caring for and loving pets, the heartache is intense when they are gone. Pet grief can be caused by anticipatory death, loss through divorce, lost pet, accidents, euthanasia, compassion fatigue, relocating and the list goes on. Talking to a trained professional for just a few sessions can ease the pain enough so your pet can be remembered with honor and dignity.

Online Support for New York State Residents Grieving the Loss of Their Pets


I offer a three-session online program to help New Yorkers deal with the loss of their beloved pets.


Many people don’t understand how difficult it is to lose a beloved animal companion. Sometimes friends or family members tell you to get another pet, or to “just get over it already.” The truth is that the grief you feel is absolutely normal and should be validated, not dismissed or belittled. Most of the time people don’t mean to cause you pain, they just don’t understand. I do understand. Having twice gone through the process of losing a pet, I remember the grief I felt as if it were yesterday.


I can help you move ahead in your life, not by “getting over it,” but by turning your grief into warm memories and empowering you to feel whole again.

P. O. Box 2522

South Portland

Maine, 04107

The loss of a beloved pet family member can hit us surprisingly hard, leaving a huge void in our lives.  Their unconditional love for us, constant presence and companionship are suddently missing, and we struggle with adjusting to the changes, after all the care we have given them day after day. 

Kathy was trained and certified as a pet loss counselor by the Association for Pet Loss & Bereavement in 2013.  As part of her graduate program in Counseling, she completed extensive training in grief support and death education at Center for Grieving Children, and Hospice of Southern Maine. While hearing from many folks that they could not find support for pet loss, and after the death of her beloved MagicDog, Kathy decided to create space for this at Pet Loss Pathways.

Kathy has worked with hundreds of individuals and families grieving the death of their animals (cats, dogs, birds, horses, rabbits, and more).  While she currently provides pet loss support services to veterinarian practices throughout Maine, as a pet loss grief coach, Kathy can work with folks in other states as well. 

Kathy is passionate about creating a judgement free, safe place for sharing.  It is common to question whether our choices were right, and go over and over things in our minds and hearts.  Grieving is a natural process, but it is not a straight line, and studies show it is healtier to have support along the way; to express feelings and thoughts, and have coping outlets can lead to healing and reslience. Connecting with others who have been through pet loss can make us feel less alone.  Kathy helps connect you with resources that might be helpful along the path.

I would be honored to be there with you in your grief, and bear witness to your story, and even hear about fun or poignant memories.  It is said “the measure of our grief is equal to the measure of the love we have for the one we lost”.   It is not weak to mourn one who has been such a part of our lives.  Kathy works with you to find meaning in their lives, and find creative ways to memorlize them.   We can check in about how fellow pets might be reacting to the loss, and our reactions to things people say when they give advice.  How do we adjust to this “new normal”?

For more information, please see my website, or reach out with any questions by email, text or phone.  Most folks find 2 or 3 sessions helpful; some will then do a support group. I look foward to hearing from you.

Hello!  My name is Kristy Frick and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Northeast Pennsylvania.  I am also a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and a Certified Compassionate Bereavement Specialist.  

Initially, my work as a Grief Counselor started with humans grieving humans, but has extended to humans grieving their furry, feathered and sometimes creepy companions.  This includes, animal rescuers, veterinary techs and others who work closely with animals of all kinds.

My love for animals has been life-long, but it wasn’t until my first pup, Gypsy, died when I was in college and I knew what grieving a pet really felt like and it was truly one of the worst pains I have ever felt.  In the past two years, I have had three dogs pass away – all of their deaths so very different and the impact hit me differently each time, but the pain is always deep and leaves a major void in my heart.

If you live or work in Pennsylvania and need support – please connect with me.  Although my schedule is limited at the moment, I am always happy to try to figure out a way to support the grieving.

End of Life Doula.  I was raised by an amazing hospice nurse, have a background as a bereavement support group facilitator and hospice volunteer, and have been a pet parent to a rescued horse, as well as many rescued dogs and cats.  With all that love and understanding of transitions, it was natural that I chose a path providing gentle and sacred end-of-life services to animals.  I am an End-of-Life Doula for Companion Animals (EOLD-CA) through the University of Vermont, Larner School of Medicine,  Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) through Somatic Experiencing International (SEI) and Pet Loss Grief Specialist (PLGS) through the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement.  I specialize in supporting both large and small animals and their humans through the many aspects of relationship and loss, with a strong emphasis on grief work.  My support includes meeting with you and your beloved pet to hear your story and your needs; gentle communication with your animal pre-euthanasia or natural death; supporting family members (herd, pack or human) through the loss; assistance in designing personalized sacred space; and working with you on creating meaningful farewell ceremonies, rituals and memorials.  If you choose, I can attend your pet’s euthanasia, gently helping you through the process.  And as you grieve, please know that compassionate follow-up grief support is available either in person or remotely.

Help With Pet Loss

Pet Loss Counselors / Specialists

The loss of a pet can be devastating. Facing grief without support can be overwhelming.  In fact, the grief felt after the loss of a beloved pet can be as much or more intense than it would be for a human friend or family member.  In addition to deep sadness, a pet owner may feel despair, hopelessness, guilt and emptiness. Grief must be felt and expressed before healing can take place.  I can help you cope with your pain, understand your feelings, and know what to expect during the grieving and healing process.  Often just one or two sessions are enough to make a difference, enabling you to continue healing on your own. I do sessions by zoom or telephone.

“The Loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind.” 


Saying goodbye to our loving pets can be a tough and emotional journey. Unfortunately, there are many people who do not understand why the loss of a four legged companion can trigger such intense emotions. Many pet owners find that the loss of a pet is as challenging as the loss of a family member.


I’m not only a pet mom but a therapist as well. Please take the time to explore my website and learn why I can and will provide you with the sound advice, counseling and personal guidance you need. Grief is a process with no time frame and no rules. 


Most people are uneducated when it comes to death and loss and can become easily overwhelmed by the tremendous roller coaster of emotions that comes with the loss of a pet. Those that try to support us typically, and unintentionally, end up invalidating our feelings and minimizing the role our pet played in our life. If you are dealing with a pending pet loss or the death of a pet and would like to share your story in a judgement free and supportive environment, please reach out.

I assist grieving pet-parents with finding a place of acceptance and resolve. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to grieve – as individual as our DNA, so to is the journey through grief. Some people are able to navigate through their grief journey without the assistance of a professional however, there are others who find their struggle with grief a more arduous process and recognize they need the support of a professional. My training and expertise allows me to provide the necessary tools and techniques that enable my clients to move forward towards recovery.

As a certified professional coach and pet loss grief companion, it’s an honor to walk alongside the end-of-life journey with you as you mourn your beloved best friend. My heart unites with yours.


I believe God created us in His image and that our pets reflect us with their own unique and unforgettable personalities.


When our pet is sick or suddenly sent to heaven, it’s our personal choice of how our grieving process takes shape and what it looks like.


I believe your pain, grief, disbelief, frustration, anger, and sadness are real and essential in your healing.


It’s been my experience you don’t ever “get over” the death of your fur-baby, but you do “get through it” when provided a safe place to talk about it.


Throughout the years, I’ve concluded it’s never too early or late to draw upon the riches of memories our beloved fur-babies have provided as we celebrate their lives in our unique way.

Before EUTHABAG, there were no functional alternatives to plastic bags which are usually used to dispose of our companions. Pet owners care about how their pet’s body will be handled after they pass and as pet lovers and veterinary professionals, we do too. That’s why we created EUTHABAG, a respectful, practical, dignified, and ecological pet body bag. Veterinarians & Pet Owners now have an appropriate option for the transportation, cremation, aquamation, and burial of deceased pets that is, most importantly, respectful for the animal.


Personalizing your pets bag alone or as a family can be a soothing ritual before saying your final goodbye to your companion.

For children, it can facilitate acceptance of the animal’s departure and initiate the mourning process. Children can colour or paint the bag.

They can also write a letter to their pet and put in the bag.  It’s a way for them to contribute to the process. 

Personalizing the bag in which our animal will rest is a nice way to honor them and to give them one last gift. 

Thousands of veterinary practices, Referral Centers and Veterinary Schools are now FEELING BETTER using EUTHABAG. Available in 26 countries, including USA, Canada, Australia and UK.
