OVERVIEW

Losing a pet is one of life's most difficult experiences.  Whether you consider your pet to be a friend or family member, the grief that follows when they are no longer around can be overwhelming. 

 

In addition to grief, pet loss results in a myriad of other emotions... shock, sadness, disbelief,  depression, confusion, guilt, anger, denial, sorrow, and more.  Pets become loyal and dedicated members of our lives and their absence is simply heartbreaking.

 

I know what that heartbreak feels like, as I had to put down my two 14-year old dogs on the same day in July, 2008.  It was absolutely the worst day of my life.  The anxiety and desperation leading up to that day was overwhelming and the sorrow and grief that followed was unbearable. 

 

I remember feeling like people were judging me and thinking I was overreacting to the loss of my furry family.  So, I tried to keep my pain to myself.  I found myself doing research on the Internet so I could understand and get control of my feelings, but I found more than help...
I found support and resources to validate my loss and hurt.  I was not alone.

 

During the year after I put my two dogs down, I had over a dozen friends experience the same loss.  My heart broke each time as I knew what they would face and how they would have a strong desire to memorialize and remember their special pet.

 

I developed this Web site as a comprehensive resource for the following people:

  • Anyone who is facing the tough decision to euthanize their pet

  • Anyone who is grieving the loss of a pet

  • Anyone who is friends with someone who is grieving the loss of a pet

  • Anyone who is ready to find comfort in another furry friend

If you do a search on the Internet for "pet loss," you will find hundreds and hundreds of online resources related to that topic.  I have researched many of them and have developed this site as the "best of the best" so you can get the support, resources, and memorial products you need to help you or someone you love get through the painful journey of losing a pet.
