Dutchess County SPCA Offers Free Pet Loss Grief Support Group
Losing a pet is never easy, but may it help to know there are others who understand and care. The Dutchess County SPCA holds a pet loss grief support group for pet owners who are grieving the loss of a pet. The support group is held on the first Thursday of every month from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Dutchess County SPCA’s Adoption & Education Center, 636 Violet Avenue, Hyde Park, NY 12538. The group is free to attend but reservations are required. Please call 845.452.7722, Ext. 415 or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space.
The support group is run by Edna Massi, NY State Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and offers a safe and confidential environment for adults to share their story of loss and connect with others who understand the special bond between people and animals. Pet owners, family members and friends affected by the loss of a companion animal are welcome.
