Pet Loss Support Group
First Tuesday of Each Month, 7pm – 9:00pm
Hosted By: Paws, Whiskers & Wags, Decatur, GA
The heart knows no difference between losing an animal companion and losing a human loved one. There are many resources for people suffering from pet loss bereavement. The more you share your grief with others the stronger you will become. Take charge of your grief and your grief work will help you grow in ways you never thought possible. Space is limited so please RSVP for this event.
