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 our deepest sympathy. You may feel overwhelmed and shocked by this recent departure. Or, you may still mourn a long-absent best friend and wonder if you will ever feel the same again.
You are not alone. Your suffering is understood by a community of visitors who have chosen to adore these beings and then had to endure this difficult passage. 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 does not die. But it is hard to feel anything but sorrow right now because his physical form is gone and all you know is that you want him back.
If you are in need of immediate support and a counseling session could be of help (in-person, videoconference or telephonic) please visit this page to arrange a session. 5% of every bereavement session is donated to a no-kill animal shelter or animal adoption agency.
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.
