PetLossSupportGroupPet Loss Support Group

When your companion animal dies, it’s natural to feel grief and sadness, even depression. Our free support group is designed to help anyone grieving the death, loss or terminal illness of a beloved companion animal (need not be a PHS animal.) Led by a professional counselor, our group meets the second Thursday of each month, from 7-8:30 p.m. The group usually ranges in size from 6 to 12 participants. Some people come once or twice, others four or five times. There is no need to sign up or RSVP. 

For more information, please call Brian Probst at 650-340-7022, ext. 328 or email The group is held at the Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion, located at 1450 Rollins Rd., Burlingame (x street Edwards Ct.).
