When your companion animal dies, it’s natural to feel grief and sadness, even depression. Our support group is designed to help anyone grieving the death, loss or terminal illness of a beloved companion animal (need not be a MSRPAC adopted animal.) Led by Jeanne E. Kataoka, RScP, OAC, who is an ordained Animal Chaplain, credentialed Animal Bereavement Facilitator through the Passmore Animal Chaplain Program of the Emerson Theological Institute.
Memorial services are held quarterly. There is no need to sign up or RSVP.
Participants are able to reflect and appreciate how companion animals have enriched their lives, and to help heal the very real pain that accompanies a beloved animal’s transition. Should you wish, you may send photos of your pet to (by march 8th). Candles are encouraged for participation in the service.
