Today’s blog isn’t about pet travel. It’s about resources to help cope with the passing of a pet.
We think that anyone who cares enough about a pet to read a blog on tips for taking the stress out of pet travel is the type of person who would feel the loss of a beloved pet very deeply. And PetravelR™ would like to share some online resources that you may find helpful in dealing with your grief.
The first is the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement. The APLB provides chat rooms staffed by professionally trained volunteers in pet bereavement counseling. There is one chat room for dealing with your pet’s passing, and another for anticipatory bereavement to help you prepare for the loss of your pet.
Another is a website called Grieving.com, where you can share your feelings about your loss and discuss your bereavement with others. Grieving.com has a support group devoted entirely to the loss of a pet.
If you are grieving the loss of a beloved pet, we extend our heartfelt sympathy. The PetravelR™ family has lost our own pets over the years, and we try to take comfort in the knowledge that we have given them all wonderful homes filled with love and compassion. And we will always cherish their memory. Cherish yours, as well.
Your friends at PetravelR™
