Coping with Pet Loss
Loosing a pet is not an easy thing, but it can be therapeutic to honor them by spreading a little joy---just as your pet did for you. Consider doing these simple things to channel your grief.
- Donate food bags of your pets uneaten food and treats to your local animal shelter. Shelters always need food, so by donating your leftovers, you will help a needy animal and prevent waste.
- Give to a charity. Give money, volunteer to walk dogs, foster animals or spread the word on social media about rescue efforts. Most charities related to animal rescues will take donations in your pets honor.
- Adopt. After some time passes, it may provide comfort to bring home another pet. Because pets instinctively respond to your needs, they wont be turned off by how introverted you are during this difficult time. Instead, they will gravitate closer to you as they offer unconditional love.
