Are you grieving the loss of a pet?

Losing a beloved pet can be one of the most difficult and heartbreaking experiences anyone can go through. It's never easy to say goodbye, but it becomes even more challenging when you have to let go of a cherished companion who has been by your side for years. The grief of bereavement is something that we all must face at some point in life, but that doesn't make it any less real or painful.


When dealing with the death of a pet, empathy, and understanding from others are essential factors for healing. It is important to remember that every person grieves differently, and there is no right way to do so; some people may need time alone, while others might seek comfort in sharing their feelings with friends or family members. Whatever helps you cope best should be taken into consideration during this difficult period.

Dawn is not only the Founding President and primary caretaker at Woody's Place Senior German Shepherd Sanctuary, she is also a pet grief specialist and RACE-certified canine nutrition coach.
