Pet Loss Support

The SPCA is collaborating with Papillon Center for Loss and Transition to offer a Pet Loss Support Group. Losing a beloved pet can be just as devastating as losing a human companion. People experiencing this special kind of grief often feel isolated in their sadness and loneliness. 

The Pet Bereavement Support Program offers a place to learn about your grief and to discuss tools to manage your experience in addition to the community of others missing a dear pet.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • When will I feel better?
  • Feeling like you heard, saw or felt your departed pet
  • Did I do all I could for my pet?
  • When is it time to get a new pet?

There is no fee to attend. Registration is required. Please call 831-320-1188 for more information or email
