Paws for Healing: Pet Loss Support Group

May 31, 2017 -
3:30pm to 4:30pm

The Santa Maria Valley Humane Society and Dignity Health invite you to attend Paws for Healing, a pet loss support group. There are limited resources for people grieving the loss of a pet in the Northern Santa Barbara community, and we’re looking to change that. It can be hard to heal from such a loss on your own, so we want to be there for you. Come to one meeting, or come every month; it’s up to you. Share stories, pictures, and take the time to pause, grieve, and heal from your loss. The unconditional love, companionship, and joy our pets bring to us is priceless. Equally hard is the heartache and emptiness we feel when we lose our beloved animal companion. Grieving our pet is a natural and necessary process that allows us to honor these special companions, heal from our loss, and gain a renewed sense of hope over time. Having a safe and supportive place to express our thoughts and feelings with others who understand can contribute significantly to our healing.

Paws for Healing meets the last Wednesday of every month, starting April 26th at 3:30-4:30pm in the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society’s conference room.  If you have questions, please call at 805-349-3435 or email at kfarrell@smvhs.org, thank you.
