Veterinary and Rescue Support Group

Helping you help others

We understand the many difficulties veterinarians, rescues, and their staff members experience. We are committed to helping you to help grieving pet parents through the pain of the death or anticipated death of a pet. 

We will also help you work through compassion fatigue. And, of course, we are here to support you when you suffer your own pet losses.

We offer a support group for veterinarians, rescues, and their staff on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm EST.
