**UPDATE** The first Saturday of the month free Pet Loss Support Group, held at the CSU James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, will still be held, just not in person. I have reserved a private conference line for Saturday’s group from 10-11:30 a.m.. See below for information on how to join the group. Please call 1-425-436-6350 and enter Access code # 880072

Understanding that these are stressful and uncertain times, grief is not only impacted by COVID-19, it is heightened. I am honored to help you with the loss of your dear family pet in the following ways:
  • ​All free pet loss support groups will be facilitated remotely at the regularly scheduled times, using the number listed above, until further notice.
  • Discounted phone therapy sessions.
  • Fifteen minute "wellness checks".

Canine Companion Consulting

Support group for pet parents with “special needs” pets

This humans-only support group is for pet parents who are working through a pet's sometimes very severe behavior/medical issues. It can be stressful, frustrating, and isolating to have a pet that is fearful, aggressive, has chronic or severe medical issues and or is anxious. It can impact your daily life and isolate you as others just don’t understand and can be judgmental. This group is a safe place where you know everyone will understand and will help you get through your journey with your pet. 

The group meets on the third Thursday of the month starting 2/15/18 at 6 p.m. in Fort Collins, Colo. For registration or questions please contact Beth at


$20 for each or $80 for 5 groups. Register:​
