cat and dog photoOur pets become members of our families and are often our best friends. They love us unconditionally, and when they die or disappear, sometimes we are surprised at the depth of sadness and emptiness we feel. This group offers a place where you and others who are grieving the loss of a pet will discover you are not alone in your grief—a place where you can begin to heal as you share with one another your experiences and memories of your special friend.

This program is offered at no charge. Pre-registration not required.  For Adults and Teens only.
