Taking the Time to Grieve and Seeking Support
Many people find comfort in physical reminders of their pet. It could be a beautiful urn containing the pet’s ashes, a marker stone in the garden, photographs, or a memory book. Some find comfort in helping others, whether by donating to charities, volunteering, fostering, or opening their hearts to another animal in need of a warm, safe, loving home.
There are numerous books on grieving available, many of them mentioned on the websites listed below. Professional counseling is also a valuable resource that can help people deal with their pain.
