Pet Bereavement Awareness and Support

Foot and pawprintsThe issue of Pet Bereavement and the heartache and devastation it can cause is very often overlooked, belittled and a disenfranchised area of grief.

One of the primary objectives of Fostering Compassion’s work is based on the strength and benefits of the human-animal bond so it is also important to recognise the impact when that bond is broken through death or enforced separation.

Through this area of our work, we offer a weekly Pet Bereavement Friendship Group and, along with the Society for Companion Animal Studies (SCAS), we have created specially themed resources providing support and guidance on Creating Compassionate Workplaces, Classrooms and Care Homes.
