Losing your companion animal can be an extremely difficult and painful experience. Family, friends and others in our lives don’t always understand how drastically the loss of a pet can affect us, and can find it difficult to support the grief we feel. The San Diego Humane Society’s Pet Loss Support Group provides an environment where thoughts and emotions can be shared and feelings of grief are understood and validated. Facilitated by a licensed, clinical social worker, the group is open to anyone age 10 and up and is appropriate for those who have recently lost a pet, are still mourning an old loss, are anticipating the death of a pet, or are preparing for euthanasia. Visit the website to learn more.
The FACE Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance for San Diego animal owners who are unable to afford the cost of their pets’ emergency or critical veterinary care. Additionally, FACE’s Save-a-Life Program was created to address the tragedy of economic euthanasia. What started out as a beautiful vision to stop the surrender and euthanasia of beloved family pets has become a supportive center where families in crisis can get a helping hand to save their pets’ lives.
