Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) Companion Animal Loss Support Group

First Tuesday of each month, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., with Vicki Traylor, LMFT

Anyone who has experienced a loss or anticipates such a loss is invited to attend the HSSV Companion Animal Loss Support Group. The group helps grieving pet owners heal the pain by working through their feelings of loss, anger, and depression. You may attend an unlimited number of meetings and are encouraged to return to help others work through their grief even after your own needs are met.

This service is provided at no fee for our community, however, we welcome donations to help provide live saving services for our animals here at the shelter.
