Author Amy Sedaris notes, “Sometimes losing a pet is more painful than losing a human because in the case of a pet, you were not pretending to love it.”  Our pet companions provide pure, uncomplicated love and this is why grieving the death of a pet can feel exquisitely painful. Often well-meaning friends make unhelpful suggestions (“get another dog and you’ll feel better”) that may deepen your sense of loss and aloneness. This group provides a safe and nurturing forum to share stories about your pet relationship, learn healthy ways to tend to your heartache and integrate your loss into the fabric of your being.
