Support Circles

Facebooktwitter


Day By Day Pet Caregiver Support Circles are led by facilitators certified in specializing in anticipatory grief and pet loss.  Our team provides a safe, secure, non-judgmental environment where you can choose to share your feelings and struggles regarding your pet caregiving or pet loss experience.

Through discussions with other pet caregivers, you’ll learn that You Are Not Alone. Hear what other pet caregivers are going through or have gone through on a day by day basis.

If you’d like to know more about the support circles before attending, please contact us by phone or message us. We can walk you through what to expect. The thought of coming may be difficult for you but please know after attending many of our participants have said shared they were so glad they came.

Emotional support information about anticipatory grief, decision-making and euthanasia, pet loss and grief will be available at every support group meeting.

Children and Adolescent Support Circle, ages 6-13. Children and teens come together to share stories, play games and do creative activities lead by Master’s level facilitator. Refreshments provided. R.S.V.P to attend Children’s group only to 484-453-8210.

Our Support Circle Mantra

I am my pet’s caregiver.
With the support from those who walk this same road I will find understanding.
Paw in hand we take this journey day by day.
