If you have experienced the loss of your animal or are anticipating the loss of your animal, know that you are not alone in the grief that you are feeling. The purpose of this group is to create a safe and supportive environment where everyone’s grief matters. Participants will have an opportunity to express their loss and share memories of their companions.
We can also do a tribute to your pet in our Talent Hounds RIP In Loving memory section – just send us a photo and story. For a small fee, we can even do videos or memory books for you too. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
