Free Weekly Support Groups
Open for anyone grieving the loss of a pet.
Registration is free and open to the public. It’s recommended to register and reserve your spot ahead of time so that we can be sure you have time to speak, tell your story, and ask your questions.
In a virtual grief support group, you’ll be exploring your own journey through grief but you’ll be joined by others who have also lost a beloved pet. Share your story of love and loss, then listen to the stories of others in your group. In our free grief counseling video chatrooms, you will have the chance to:
- Share your story of love and loss,
- Listen to other people who are deeply grieving,
- Interact with people who are at various points on their journey,
- Learn, grow, and grieve while supported by people who care.
Grief shared is grief lessened.
In deep grief there is seldom better comfort than the companionship of others who understand loss and sadness. It is such a comfort and blessing to know that we don’t have to grieve alone.

What Other People Are Saying
Thank you Kevin for all you do. I'm usually the goto person for other’s pain. But it’s lonely at the top.
Most wonderful people I know in the present time are clueless and speechless at my sorrow. I was blessed with and equal dose of vulnerability and fortitude, but I've being devoid of people friends, relationship, family that can whether my feelings without denying or hosing them down.
That being said. I do deeply appreciate your work and the group. I can emote joy, sadness, anger and ... Thank you!
Thanks, Kevin. You are amazing and I thank you for the work that you do.
I just wanted to let you know that I so appreciated your pet grief support group. It helped me heal from the loss of Jenny-Sun so that I could find a new dog to love.
I adopted Milo from California GSP Rescue on January 1! He is a perfect fit for me and we are so happy together. 😊 We snuggle a lot! I am working on fattening him up!
Thank you again. Wishing you a wonderful 2022 with the loving companionship of Ponce and big sheepdog (sorry, I forgot the name).
Although it didn’t lessen my grief, knowing others felt the same and understood did give some comfort.
Shayna and I are eternally grateful that we found you. Without you I would have dealt so differently with my grief. Perhaps died.
I am still sad but I no longer wish to die or live without Shayna. I must go on and honor Shayna's memory so that I can love and be loved by another fur-baby or adult that needs my love and care.
I am so glad I connected with Kevin when I did after suddenly losing my dog Jacques in a freak accident. I was unable to function after such a devastating loss, and our work together helped me gain a larger perspective on the incident and stop blaming myself.
The hands on activities and writing prompts really made me evaluate my relationship with Jacques and come to the realization that his passing was just a small part of our wonderful time together. While I am still saddened by the unexpected loss of Jacques, I have come to accept it and cherish the many happy moments and memories we did have together.
I don’t believe in angels and yet it feels like the right word for what you’ve been to me since Dusty died.
