Pet Loss Support groups are a safe place that will provide a non-judgmental environment for individuals or family members to meet and share their emotions before or after the loss of a beloved pet.
These groups will provide a place to share your feelings with others who are going through or have gone through similar struggles. Here you will find validation and affirmation that you may not get from your family or friends who don’t understand what you are facing.
Many groups also welcome children. Please check with your local support group first to ensure that it is right for you.
