Free pet loss grief class
The SPCA of Northern Nevada (SPCA) is offering a monthly pet loss grief class designed to help pet guardians with the passing of a companion animal, either recently or in the past. These classes will be ongoing throughout 2014 on the fourth Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. and will be held at the SPCA’s Stanley James Walker Pet Care and Adoption Center, 4950 Spectrum Blvd. in Reno, Nev. Each week involves one to two specific topics on grief, depending on class participants, and will be moderated by Steve Woods, owner of A Beloved Friends Pet Crematory and Rev. Stephen Arvin, local Public Safety Chaplain.
Our companion animals provide unconditional love and companionship so it is natural to feel great anguish and sadness when they pass, leaving a tremendous hole in our hearts. Find support and coping tools to move past one of life’s very real challenges with such topics as understanding grief, stages and myths of grief, normal reactions to grief, consequences of denial of grief, grief for children and seniors, and many other subjects.
RSVP to Elizabeth@spcanevada.org to reserve your spot in class. If you have any questions, please call 775-324-7773, ext. 200.
