Part of owning a pet is the inevitability of their passing. This is the part of ownership that can be the most difficult for owners to discuss and address; “When is the right time?” “How will I know?” ” I don’t want to make that decision!”
This is a topic that our staff deal with every day and we’re here to help. We provide support and information to help owners with the decision but we also have a great leaflet which we hope helps owners prepare for this very difficult time and can be downloaded HERE
There are also some great support providers out there that owners can access such as:
- “Paws to Listen” – telephone 0800 0249494. https://www.cats.org.uk/what-we-do/grief-and-loss/grief-resources-support This service is provided by The Cats Protection League which is staffed by volunteers ready to listen and provide help and support after the death of a pet.
- The Blue Cross – 0800 0966606. https://www.bluecross.org.uk/pet-bereavement-and-pet-loss You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. They provide support if you have lost your pet through death, parting or enforced separation.
