Grieving and Pet Loss Information

Feeling overwhelmed by grief? Feeling isolated at the emptiness by the loss of your beloved pet? Join others who share similar feelings at the PET LOSS SUPPORT GROUP. Meets monthly – first Wed 6:00 p.m. Unitarian Church – Jefferson House 21 Edwin Place, Asheville. Individual counseling also available. For more information, call Christy Gunther, MA LPC at (828) 258-3229.

"Paws on the Heart" Pet Loss & Grief Support Group:  Coping with a serious illness or death of a pet can be a devastating experience to individuals sharing their lives with animals.  Losing a pet from divorce or other situations can be equally devastating and stressful.  It’s also an emotional time for individuals working with animals on a daily basis.

It’s never easy saying goodbye, whether it’s a family grieving the loss of a beloved pet at age fifteen or a veterinarian and staff ending the suffering of a patient and consoling their clients. The human-animal bond runs deep; being able to express one’s feelings and emotions when experiencing a loss is both helpful and healing.

Paw on the Heart meets the 2nd Sunday of each month -   3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Location:  American Red Cross
100 Edgewood Road – Asheville, NC 28804
(Corner of Merrimon & Edgewood – behind the Atlanta Bread Company)

Facilitating the support group are two avid animal lovers who strongly believe in the importance of honoring the pets in our lives: Rev. Gerry Smith, chaplain at Mission Hospital for 31 years and Rev. Dan McCurry, retired hospital trauma chaplain interested in music therapies and animal behavior.

There is no cost to attend, but donations to help ACN’s rescued dogs and cats are appreciated.  Reservations are encouraged but not required.  For more information please contact, Cappy Tosetti: (828) 707-7203.  Email: Tosetti.cappy@gmail.com
