Pet Loss Help is devoted to supporting the grieving process of those who have lost companion animals. If this is the reason for your visit, please accept my deepest sympathy. You may feel overwhelmed, disoriented and shocked by this recent departure. You may still be mourning a long-absent best friend and wonder if you will ever heal.
You are not alone. Your suffering is understood by a community of visitors and advocates who have chosen to adore these blessed beings and then had to endure the excruciating passage of their loss. The enrichment they bring to our lives and the acute agony of their death can devastate the strongest heart.
You may feel your pain is unbearable and wonder how you will survive. But even at this very moment, the bond you had with your departed companion continues to sustain you as the exchange of soulful love never dies. But it is impossibly hard to feel anything but sorrow right now because their physical presence is absent and all you know, all you feel, is that you want him back.
If you are in need of immediate support and a counseling session could be of help (Zoom or telephonic) pleasevisit this pageto arrange a meeting with me. 15% of every bereavement session is donated to a no-kill animal shelter, animal adoption agency or non profit animal organization.
To read stories written by those who have shared your journey of love and loss, stories of magnificent animals who have enriched the lives of their human stewards, please visit our Hall of Fame page.
To memorialize your own departed friend, please click on Submission Form to begin the process. We ask that you send a picture and a two-three paragraph story of your animal's life. All submissions are accepted and posted without charge, but stories may be slightly edited to adhere to publication guidelines.
