Pet Loss and Grief Useful Links

Losing a pet or making the decision to euthanise your pet, are very painful and often confusing situations.   We often feel that others can't understand what we are feeling, after all - "it's only an animal".... to that end we have assembled a series of resources that we hope will help to answer your questions and make some sense out of what you are going through.  We hope that you will find information, and perhaps even some comfort or peace, that will assist you in this difficult process.

I Am Not There
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
