Pet Loss Grief Support Group

Support GroupWhen your companion animal dies, it's natural to feel grief and sadness, even depression. Our free support group is designed to offer anyone grieving the death, loss or terminal illness of a beloved companion animal. Led by a professional counselor, our group meets the second Thursday of each month, from 7-8:30 pm. The group usually ranges in size from 6 to 12 participants. Some people come once or twice, others four or five times. Participants need not be PHS/SPCA adopters and are not required to sign up for the class. For more information, please call Richelle Pittella at 650/340-7022, ext. 344 or email rpittella@phs-spca.org. The group is held at our new Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion, located at 1450 Rollins Rd., Burlingame (x street Edwards Ct.).

Dates for 2014:

  • August 14
  • September 11
  • October 9
  • November 13
  • December 11
