Pet Loss Support GroupPet Loss Support Group

Once per month, our Client Support Counselor and our Pet Loss Grief Specialist host a 90-minute pet loss support group. These sessions are a time for pet owners who have experienced loss to meet as a group to share stories of their pets, thoughts on their feelings and loss, and find common ground to help others in the group. The meetings also help guide pet owners through the grieving process. The Pet Loss Support group generally meets the third Monday of each month from 6 – 7:30 p.m. in the Bennett Conference Room (room 203) in the Center for Companion Animal Health (reception B). Please contact our counselor Florence Soares-Dabalos at 530-752-7341 or for further details.
