Grief Support Services. org
A Program of National Grief Support Services Inc.
Our pets come in all shapes and sizes, from domestic to exotic, and are as unique as the people who love them. When they die, your feelings for them are most personal, yet there are others who have expressed themselves over their own losses of beloved animal companions. The depth of those simple feelings can, in a way, make them too complex for some to understand. But there are avenues to help you through the absence of that steady companionship and good will that you had counted on from your pet.
Here you will find Pet Loss Support Groups, both online and by telephone. Are you frustrated with others who don't seem to understand your feelings for your pet? Yet you know there are others who do. Here you will find a compassionate community where you can feel comfortable to share your feelings. Some are facing that same emptiness as you are right now. Please visit our Online and TeleSupport Groups for further information.
You can also express your own feelings creatively through the Pet Garden of Remembrance, multimedia online tributes that celebrate your pet's life. Imagine an almost 3-D experience in words, pictures - even video clips - and sound or music to memorialize your treasured companion.
There are also many other outlets that we have compiled, a web of resources on and off the Internet that offer supportive insights, empathy and ideas. We have assembled these, as we have to serve people experiencing all kinds of grief, knowing that a menu of help offerings allows each person to heal in their own way. You will find countless resources in our Online Library.
Our free book, Grief Passages: Poems and Essays For Hope Comfort and Times of Loss, has an entire chapter devoted to Remembering Pets. The book is free of charge and can be sent to you by going to the Grief Passages page in the Resources Section of our site.
In the aftermath of the loss of an animal friend, understanding is our greatest offering.
