I am looking forward to facilitating the new Pet Loss Support Group Meetings through the the Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS). Meetings will be held at the FAAS South Shore location on the third Monday of each month, beginning October 21, 2019 6-7PM. These are free, drop-in meetings, but people are encouraged to RSVP  -- email address coming soon! 

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, like life is too much, and/or have thoughts of harming yourself, please call the National 24-Hour Crisis Line: 1-800-273-TALK (8255). 

ASPCA Pet Loss Hotline:  1-877-GRIEF-10. The Hotline is staffed by a clinical psychologist from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily.
