What we’re about

While our weekly support groups used to be held in-person in the Denver-metro area, we switched over to Zoom at the start of the pandemic in March 2020- and now we are able to serve even more folks in need, anywhere in the country!

Just click the link below at 6:30PM Mountain Time to join our Thursday night groups. We hope to see you there!

******************************************************************************

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 compassionate, licensed therapists and has been available, free-of-charge, to the Denver area since 1988, thanks to the 501(c)3 non-profit The Human-Animal Bond Trust. The groups switched to Zoom online meetings in March of 2020 and have been helping people all across the country ever since.
