Grief About Pets, LLC (GAPs) 

GAPs has teamed up with Hummel Pet Services to provide a bi-monthly Pet Loss Support Group. The main goal of our group is to offer a safe, comfortable place where grieving pet parents can come to share their struggles of adjusting to life without their precious furbaby(s). Together we will share our pain but offer hope for healing as we walk the road together.

Group is FREE and meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday for every month from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at Hummel’s 3475 Copley Rd. Akron, OH 44321. Please register to attend by calling Hummel’s (330-247-1401) or GAPs (330-415-8879).
