Whether the result of a natural death, accident, illness, your decision to euthanize, or its disappearance, the feelings you have over the loss of your beloved pet can seem overwhelming. Know that your feelings are natural, as painful as they may be.
In our culture, when a pet dies there are some who may not understand that this loss is as painful as when a human dies. In some cases, it is worse. To experience the sweet and deep love possible between a person and a companion animal is a gift. With this gift of strong love comes a corresponding response of strong grief. It is nothing to be ashamed of.
HSSA volunteer Renee Terry facilitates the support group every 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month. Please call Renee at 520.603.8319 to register for the group.
