Share Your Pet Loss Stories

All Other Pets Stories



Sharing your pet loss story can be a helpful way of releasing the emotions and feelings you may feel as a result of pet bereavement and pet death.

Many of us have a wealth of memories to share about our pets, what they meant to us, how they were there in significant moments of our lives and how much we miss them now they have left us.




Having had to cope with the pet grief of the loss of a pet myself many many times, I can remember feeling the need to not only share my own pet's stories, but also the need to read about others experiences of pet loss. I wanted to know I was not alone and I wanted to know that others had felt just as I did. I wanted to read how others had coped or not coped and to feel understood by a special group of people who loved animals just as much as I did.

I know that I am not alone in these feelings and many people find that they too feel a need and find a comfort in writing their experiences down and reading the stories of others. The purpose of this site is both to help and be helped by sharing our experiences and memories, both joyous and painful.
