Pet Loss Hotlines and Online Resources

We know that when one is feeling overwhelmed, it can be hard to figure out where to start. In order to help owners navigate the many resources available, we have compiled the following list, which is not inclusive. Many of the resources were chosen based on personal recommendations from clients, as well as professionals that specialize in the Human-Animal Bond. 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. An effort was made to ensure that the information was accurate at the time of publication.
