To all of the families who have experienced loss this year, our hearts are with you. We see your loss, your tears, your heartache. We respect your choices and your grieving processes. Your experience matters. The love and bond you shared cannot be broken. Whether the time you shared was long or short- it happened and it made an impact on your lives. Nothing can take those memories away. Reflect on that love and those memories as you navigate through loss. That love will keep you strong.
If you ever feel that you need a little extra support with those emotions, please don’t hesitate to call. We can put you in contact with experienced pet loss councillors. 2 legs, 4 legs, no legs, wings or fins- grief does not discriminate. Don’t ever feel that you need to suffer in silence because you matter. How you feel matters. Reach out- there is always someone to help.
If you need immediate support, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14. They are amazing and can help you 24/7.
