June 14 is World Pet Memorial Day, a day to remember our furry friends who are no longer by our side.

Did you know you can honour your beloved companion (or that of a friend or family member) by making a tribute donation in their memory? You can provide comfort to someone who is grieving by giving them the knowledge an animal in need is being helped in honour of their furry friend.

Grieving the loss of a pet: You’re not alone

When you lose a beloved companion animal your whole world can change. Please know you are not alone and we are here to help you through this difficult journey.

Presented by the Robbie Dean Family Counselling Centre in partnership with the Ontario SPCA, we invite you to join us for our virtual pet loss support group meetings. The virtual meetings are offered on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (indefinitely) from 6:30-8 p.m, and are facilitated by a certified grief counsellor.  Admission is FREE and all are welcome to join *Registration is required*

We are grateful to be able to offer this resource to our community thanks to funding provided by the Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation. If you or someone you know is struggling with the loss of their beloved pet, please reach out to Robbie Dean Family Counselling Centre to learn more and register. These virtual meetings are open to anyone across the province.
