Working Through Pet Loss

Wednesday 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
This open educational group is dedicated to working through the emotional rollercoaster that can occur when we lose a beloved pet. Whether it is sudden or long-time coming, the permanence of a pet?s death can take its toll on thoughts and emotions that are a natural part of the healing process.

The support group meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the Month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There is no charge but pre-registration is required. To register call Tammie Bouschor at (312) 644-8338 ext. 344 or e-mail tbouschor@anticruelty.org.
