Las Vegas Original Weekly Pet Loss Support Group
Understanding Your Feelings When A Pet Dies
The bond that we form with our pets can be very deep and fulfilling, and the loss of a beloved pet can have an impact on us that is as great, or even greater, than the loss of a family member or friend. This bond is what makes our interactions with pets rich and rewarding, but also what makes the grief process so complicated.
The greater the love you feel for a person or animal, the deeper the sense of loss when they are gone. After your pet has died or been lost, it is natural and normal to feel grief and sorrow. The amount of time a person grieves for the loss of their pet may be very different for different people.
Although grief is an internal and private response, there are certain stages of grief that most people experience. By understanding the process, you can be better prepared to accept and handle your grief and to help other family members and friends who share your sense of loss. It’s hard to think of it this way because the process can seem so painful, but mourning is actually an act of love. We also work with euthanasia issues.
The Las Vegas pet loss support group works with individuals and families overwhelmed with the grief loss process brought about by the loss of a beloved pet. Other attendees also include those who have had a pet "run away" or lost a pet in a divorce settlement. Newcomers are encouraged to attend at least six sessions to get a feel for the group experience and determine if it's right for you. This small and caring support group is provided weekly by Divorced & Widowed Adjustment, Inc. A Las Vegas, Nevada non-profit organization providing community service programs for over 40 years. This group is facilitated by Dr. Sue Wheeler Ed.D
