Pet Loss Support Group @ Lantos Center for Compassion
Dec 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Pet Loss Support Group @ Lantos Center for Compassion | Burlingame | California | United States

When your companion animal dies, it’s natural to feel grief and sadness, even depression. Our free support group is designed to offer anyone grieving the death, loss or terminal illness of a beloved companion animal. Led by a professional counselor, our group meets the second Thursday of each month, from 7-8:30 pm. The group usually ranges in size from 6 to 12 participants. Some people come once or twice, others four or five times. Participants need not be PHS/SPCA adopters and are not required to sign up for the class.
