Humane Euthanasia and After Care Services
San Diego Humane Society is here to support you when the time has come to say goodbye to a cherished pet, during a time that can be emotional and overwhelming.
We provide a variety of compassionate services to help you through this difficult time.
Pet Loss Support Group
The loss of a pet is never easy, and having a support system can help you through the healing process. Our Pet Loss Support Group provides an environment where thoughts and emotions can be shared and feelings of grief are understood and validated. It's open to everyone 10 and up, and is appropriate for those who have recently lost a pet, are still mourning an old loss, are anticipating the death of a pet or are preparing for euthanasia.
