The loss of an animal companion, whether due to death, being lost or stolen, or placement in a new home, may be one of the most devastating and painful experiences pet owners ever face. For many, such a loss is as traumatic as losing a family member or a dear friend and can trigger an intense grieving process.
The following list has be compiled by staff at Larimer Humane Society to assist you through the grieving process or for you to support a friend or family member who has experienced pet loss.
