Pet Loss Support
Our Pets are members of our families. When we lose our beloved dog
or cat, we experience the same grief as we would losing any family member. During this difficult time, it is important
to have the love and support of our family and friends. If you feel overwhelmed or just very sad, please consider using
these websites or books to help get through this very hard time. It is important not to go through this alone.
It will get easier with time. There are support groups
available to you where everyone is experiencing the same feelings of sadness and loss. Please do not hesitate to join
and get the support of others who will understand your feelings. And above all, please remember that is is better to have
loved and lost than never to have loved at all...
