Animal Loss Support Group

Healing in the Hahn

Animal Loss Support Group via Zoom

Our animals may take on any number of roles in our lives, and their unconditional love and consistent presence contribute to the human-animal bond we develop. We may find ourselves grieving their loss strongly, for they are partners, friends, family members, and confidantes.

There are times when this experience touches our lives in extraordinary ways that we had not anticipated or realized until we walk through this new phase of life. Through the support of others experiencing similar loss, our animal loss support group can provide you with the space and time to actively grieve.

Through the support of others experiencing similar losses, our animal loss support group, which is free of charge, provides hospital clients with a space and time to actively grieve. We will share, cover topics, and celebrate the gifts that your animal has given you.
