What we're about
Pets give us companionship and unconditional love.
Our relationships with our animal companions are very special and unique. For many of us, our companion animal is a member of the family and when the bond we share is broken, the resulting sense of loss and grief is as real and sometimes as overwhelming as when we lose a relative or human friend.
Whether an animal dies, is lost, stolen, or must be placed in a new home, sorrow is a normal and natural reaction to the loss of a beloved friend.
Our culture doesn’t always provide us with the rituals to help mourn the loss of a companion animal as it does the loss of a human. Even your best friends and relatives may not acknowledge or understand the depth of feeling you have for a lost pet. The first step in coping with your grief is to acknowledge your feelings.
Grieving the loss of a friend or companion is a sign of the love that existed between you.
Our goal is to provide support to any pet parent that anticipates or has experienced the loss of a beloved companion animal. You're not alone...come experience the support of other who going through a similar experience.
The Pet Loss Support Group is a safe and supportive environment where individuals can come to process the grief occurring from the loss of a beloved animal companion. This weekly group is facilitated by licensed therapists and has been available, free-of-charge, to the Denver area since 1988. Our goal is to provide support to any pet parent that anticipates or has experienced the loss of a beloved companion animal. You're not alone...come to experience the support of other who going through a similar experience.
We meet every Thursday from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM.
There is no need to RSVP. Just show up.
