If you recently lost a precious pet or know of someone who is grieving the loss of a pet, this is one place to find support.
The SAPPY Pet Loss/Grief Support Group of San Antonio was organized in 2003, after my husband Jim and I said farewell to our precious 14-year-old longhaired Chihuahua, Sappy. Our little Sappy brought so much joy to our hearts and home. When our veterinarian gave us the grim news about his bladdar cancer, we were devastated. And, when the day arrived for us to euthanize him, it was the worse day of our lives. But, thanks to our faith in God, we are doing well and reaching out to other pet parents who are experiencing the same or similar circumstances. My little Sappywas part of our lives for 14 wonderful years and our grief was deep for several months, years.
There wasn't a place where we could share our grief, so we decided to begin this very special support group in memory of Sappy and all those wonderful pets we love so much. This support group was started especially with you in mind. Jim and I understand the grief that comes after losing a precious pet. Our pets aren't just pets, they are part of our family. They are like children to some of us and like best friends to others.
Our pets are a huge part of our daily lives. And, you deserve to grieve and share with others who understand your loss. Our little Sappy was a 6-pound Chihuahua. He was adorable. Gosh, we love him so very much.
We truly understand. At SAPPY, you will meet some of the most wonderful pet parents on earth. We are currently gathering once a month on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Call for more information at (210) 216-0920 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
