Sue Kline Pet Bereavement Program


The loss of a pet can be emotionally devastating. Pets become part of the fabric of our families, and they leave a huge hole when they are no longer with us.  The depth of grief we feel over a pet's loss can also catch us off-guard.  Even when we think we are prepared, the reality of no longer having your best friend around can stir up deep emotions that are hard to process.

The loss of a beloved pet can carry intense feelings of grief and sadness. However, not everyone can offer the understanding and support you need. Join us and you will find an accepting environment to deal with your  feelings amidst  others with similar losses. We will discuss the normal grief process and tips for healthy coping.

The group sessions will be led by Mary Feaster, a Licensed Professional Counselor who also volunteers at Pawmetto Lifeline. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picture of their pet to the session.

Pet Loss Support Group Counseling sessions will be held on the 4th Sunday* of each month from 3:00 pm-4:30 pm.

This program is offered at no charge although donations are welcome. If you have questions, contact Karen Deas at 803-465-9173 or
