There are numerous resources for owners that are anticipating the loss, as well as support after the loss of a beloved animal. These may include articles; blogs; lists of counselors, support groups or chaplains; as well as online chatrooms (for pet loss and/or anticipatory loss). In order to help owners navigate the many resources available, we have compiled the following list, which is not inclusive. We are unable to endorse specific resources, as we have no control over the services provided and no ability to verify the competence of the providers.
The following two websites seem to be the most frequently updated with current information on counselors, support groups, etc.
www.aplb.org The Association of Pet Loss and Bereavement
www.pet-loss.net The Pet Loss Support Page
