Animal Hospice and Grief Support Group, Portland, Oregonhttp://www.meetup.com/Animal-Hospice-Support-Group-Portland-OR/http://photos2.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/2/8/2/0/global_185770272.jpeg20121203
This is a monthly support group for people who are currently caring for ailing, aging animals, are doing animal hospice care or whose animals have crossed over.
We explore what kind of physical, emotional and spiritual support we and our animals need during this time close to the end of their life and after their passing. We also talk about the "who, what, where and how" options of care such as pain management, routes of treatment, euthanasia, natural death and so on. A portion of each meeting is devoted to deepening our meditative life with our pets. Many of our members whose animals have crossed over, continue to participate actively in our group and lend support.
If you are interested in learning more about animal hospice care, you are most welcome!
