Pet Loss Grief Support Group Sessions

Second Thursdays, 5–7 pm

Pet loss grief support group

At HHS, or any animal shelter, it is not uncommon to meet patrons who are experiencing grief after losing a beloved pet. Many are trying to adopt another pet, some are trying to heal through volunteering, and others are just trying to learn how to be in the same room with an animal again after a loss. Sadly, in our world, there is a stigma against grieving pets and thus these individuals often feel as if they have no support system.

Because of this, we have decided to launch a pet loss support group at HHS. This group meets on the second Thursday of each month (dates below). It will be mainly discussion based, but will include educational aspects as well. We want this to be a safe place for participants to mourn their animals in a healthy way while also learning coping techniques to help them move through their grief.​

This is a free support group, but we do require that participants register at least 24 hours in advance. You will be able to register 60 days in advance of each date listed above.
