Grief Counseling For Pet Loss
At Paws into Grace we understand the unbreakable love you have for your pet. We immortalize our companions in pictures and videos, and in hard times, we take responsibility for their well-being.
When your pet is nearing the end of their time, the feeling of loss can be overwhelming. While the grieving process is a natural reaction, knowing this does not make it any less painful. A pet is part of the family and losing a companion is difficult. Whether your pet has already passed on or you’ll be exploring pet euthanasia at home, it is important to feel no shame in feeling sadness the need for pet loss support.
“There are no ridiculous questions or fears during these times. Everything is valid and when addressed and met with a compassionate ear, they become manageable.” – Elizabeth Allen
Who Should Talk to a Grief Counselor?
Anyone! A Grief Counselor is often different from a licensed therapist, who we will refer to for families who need expert assistance. Our grief counseling team is here to offer a kind ear, suggestions for preparing for loss, and help making the decision about when to let a pet go. The days leading up to the death of a pet can be filled with anxiety and certainty. We can help.
We welcome the opportunity to work with adults as well as children. Parents are often at a loss as to how to talk to their kids about the death of a pet. We can work with families before, during, or after the loss of a precious pet.
Elizabeth Allen, RScP: Family Care and Grief Specialist
