Pet Loss Hotlines and Online Resources

Note: Support for pet loss, grief, and bereavement is very different from, and not to be confused with,professional counseling and therapy (psychotherapy.) Be aware that people who provide the valuable service of pet loss support vary greatly in their training, education, experience, and expertise. This list is not inclusive. An effort was made to ensure that the information was accurate at the time of publication.  The following two resources seem to be ones that are most frequently updated with current information.
