Pet Loss Support


You are not alone.

The human-animal bond is unmeasurable. Losing a pet can be devastating to an individual or family. The anticipation of pet loss can also cause much heartache. There are many resources for individuals and families that experience heartbreak from the loss of a beloved pet.

Fortunately, there are several resources that are ready to listen to your story and help guide you through the feelings you have about this experience. Most of these Pet Loss hotlines are staffed by veterinarians and are associated with prestigious veterinary colleges or associations. There are also Pet Loss Support groups available in Madison, Chicago, and Buffalo Grove.
