So often in western society, the relationship around companion animals and pets is misunderstood, leading to disenfranchised grief, or grief that has been ridiculed, ignored, dismissed, and downplayed, leading to prolonged grief and a feeling of not being understood. I strongly believe that we need ways to honor our animal friends, as the emotions we feel for them are just as real as for the humans in our lives.
As an animal chaplain, I can help craft a ceremony to honor your pet. Whether you are looking for an adoption ceremony to honor a new addition to your family, or a memorial service to remember a friend who has passed away, I will help craft a ritual that honors your emotions and memory of your animal friend. I will journey with you and provide care as we find ways to express your grief.
