Our VisionHope and healing for those who have lost a pet

So many of us know that the heartbreak of losing a beloved pet can leave us in the depths of grief and despair. We have loved so deeply and now much journey through the healing process without our best friend beside us. …We know it’s difficult at first to believe that you will ever smile, laugh or enjoy life again, but please believe us when we say that you will.

When The World Feels Upside DownJust Remember to B.R.E.A.T.H.E.


Remember this saying – There’s only two things I must do today – Breathe in and breathe out. When it all becomes overwhelming, remember to breathe.


Grief is exhausting. Be sure and take the time to rest your heart, your body, your mind, and your soul.


As well as taking emotional care of ourselves, it’s also important to take physical care. Remember to eat at least once a day. Try and get some light exercise in such as yoga, walks, and meditation. Do whatever feels right for you.


Ask for and accept help. Do not think you have to go through this alone. You don’t! We have groups, individual sessions, and a hotline (both in-person and virtual) to help you begin to heal.


Take the time you need. Grief has no timeline. Everyone goes through this in their own time and in their own way. What is important is taking baby steps towards healing.


Honor your heart, your mind, your body, and your relationship with your pet. Do what feels right (healthy and positive things.)


Remember, the love you share with your pet is everlasting. Death does not end a relationship; it just changes it. Never forget that!
