Losing a pet is never easy, and coping with the loss of a beloved companion can be difficult. FETCH a Cure wants pet owners in our community to have the resources they need to deal with the loss of a pet and work through the understandable grief. That’s why we hold a monthly Pet Loss Support Group for families facing the loss of a furry family member.

Led by an experienced psychologist, Dr. Leslie Greenberg, families are invited to attend these monthly sessions to help work through the pain of losing a pet. June’s hour-long session will be conducted virtually via Zoom; thereafter, we will offer both in-person and Zoom attendance simultaneously. All family members, including children, are invited to attend this complimentary Pet Loss Support Group.

Please RSVP here or by emailing amanda@fetchacure.org. You will be sent the secure Zoom link after RSVPing.

Attendees are encouraged to make a donation to FETCH a Cure. 

Dr. Greenberg served on the faculty of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She earned her doctorate at the University of Georgia, master’s at Columbia University, and undergraduate degree at Emory University. She completed her internship at Brown University School of Medicine. Fellowships were completed at Boston University School of Medicine and New York University Medical Center. She lives in Richmond with her husband and their two rescue Cavalier King Charles dogs.

 

Dr. Greenberg has shared some websites that offer resources for grieving pet owners:

Our sponsor Lovingkindness Veterinary Care also links these grief resources on their website.
And Reagan Pasternak’s new book, Griffin’s Heart: Mourning Your Pet with No Apologies, may also be helpful.
