Grief Support

Losing a pet is one of the most difficult things a person can experience. Whether the loss of a pet is sudden, or something you’ve anticipated for weeks or months, it is a highly emotional time. Each person experiences grief differently – understanding what to expect during this time may be helpful for you.

We’ve talked to pet parents about their experience with pet aftercare and the loss of a pet, and have developed the following guides to address some common questions and feelings.

Pet Loss Support Group

Our Colorado Springs location is pleased to sponsor monthly pet loss support meetings for all pet parents in the Pikes Peak Region and along the Front Range. These meetings are free and open to the public. Our support group meetings are held on the 3rd Sunday of each month, from 1-3 pm. The meetings are facilitated by Sharon River Hansen, MA, LPC.

Due to Covid-19, the support group is being held off-site, outdoors.  Please contact Sharon River Hansen for location and details, as well as to RSVP.

Please help us plan ahead – RSVP to  Sharon via call or text at (719) 233-4341 if you will be attending. Thank You!
