Join others who have experienced the passing of a beloved pet, for solace and comfort. Meetings offered in small, comfortable locations where members can feel free to express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns. Group Organizer Kim Kilmer is Director of Schultz Senior Dachshund Sanctuary/Rescue in NJ, President of Central Jersey/Bucks Dachshund Group, long-time volunteer and writer for Tabby's Place, A Cat Sanctuary, Ringoes, NJ, and member of many other rescue organizations. Kim was honored this past year by the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association with its Animal Welfare Award, for her work to assist SENIOR animals in need. Join us, as Kim shares her experience with helping humans AND animals through loss; she would like to help YOU, too.
