Pet Loss Support Group: Humane Society of Huron Valley.

  community member   < less Paw in hand - Pet loss

It's never easy to lose a pet, and when you consider them, as we do, a member of the family, the loss can be difficult and extremely sad.
HSHV and Blue Dog Counseling have partnered to provide a support group on preparing for and dealing with the loss of a pet.
Colleen O'Brien, founder of Blue Dog Counseling, is an expert at developing creative therapeutic interventions to support individuals, couples, families, and other groups. Her personal commitment to animal welfare, her own experience as a devoted pet owner, and a passion for supporting people led her to create Blue Dog Counseling. Côlleen is dedicated to providing a safe, open, and creative space for discussion. A place where you can take time for yourself.
$10 donation is suggested.
Humane Society of Huron Valley, 3100 Cherry Hill Rd. Free. Donations accepted. colleen@bluedogcounseling.com www.hshv.org/events [map]
