Pet Loss & Grievance
In addition to their telephone hotline, the ASPCA features a pet loss webpage that has extensive resources for mourning pet parents.
6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. EST, Tuesday-Thursday
This hotline is staffed by volunteer veterinary students of Cornell's veterinary college. Although it is not meant to be a mental health hotline, the operators have all been rigorously trained by professional grief counselors.
Pet Partners (formerly known as the Delta Society) are known for their work with therapy and service animals. They offer a page of links to other pet loss support sites and provide information for families whose pets have "crossed the rainbow bridge."
