CARE Pet Loss Helpline

The CARE Pet Loss Helpline is honoring the human-animal bond this year at Open House with the theme of Charlotte’s Web! We are going to have everyone write down his or her favorite movie or book that involves animals, such as Where the Red Fern Grows, All Dogs Go to Heaven, or Charlotte’s Web.

The CARE Pet Loss Helpline helps people of all ages deal with the grief that comes when their pet dies. It is hard to lose a pet, and it is okay to be sad. We talk with people about their pets and give them information to read to help them deal with their sadness.

People can contact the CARE Pet Loss Helpline for a free packet of information:
