For many of us, our pets are family. This means that the feelings and love are comparable to or even stronger than our human relationships! Because of that deep heart connection, when our pet dies, we can feel the same emotions that come with the death of any loved one. Feelings such as sadness, loss, confusion, anger and complete upset of life are normal grief responses. Some people understand the impact of losing a pet … and some people may minimize our loss.
Hansen’s is pleased to offer you an opportunity to come together with others of like mind to remember and share that love. This is an open group for sharing, discussion and getting tools to help process and honor the big feelings that go with the death of a beloved animal friend.
Dr. Sandi Howlett, our Bereavement Specialist, facilitates this group and it is offered free to the public. For questions contact Dr. Sandi at 480 502 2123
