PET LOSS SUPPORT GROUP

SERVICE PHONE:713-869-7722 Main

DESCRIPTION:When a pet dies, is lost or stolen, or must be relinquished, it can be just as devastating as losing a loved one. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to speak with friends and family about the loss of a pet. All too often, pet owners are met with well-meaning attempts at minimizing the feeling of loss through the notion that, as animals, pets are easily replaceable. In order to help pet owners cope with their losses, the Houston SPCA offers the Pet Loss support group, a safe, supportive environment where thoughts and emotions can be shared with those of similar circumstances, and where feelings of grief are understood and validated. Pet Loss is facilitated by a licensed professional counselor specializing in grief, loss and crisis counseling.
