Pets Count Too

In an effort to assist our Village in all things pet related.  Paw Works has teamed up with HealGrief.org to bring you “Pets Count Too!”

 “Pets Count Too!” a pilot program by HealGrief.org, co-sponsored in part by Paw Works, offers a way to celebrate our furry friends lives after they are no longer with us.  Pets Count Too! offers a no-fee platform allowing children and families an opportunity to memorialize a beloved pet and offers life tools to aid in a healthy grief recovery.

We understand that pets are as much a family member as any other member of the family.  While for the elderly, and for those whom have chosen not to have a human family, a pet is a “child” and life revolves around the care and love for our pet.  Yet few understand the grief we humans experience after a beloved pet has died. 

The death of a pet is often a child’s first experience with death and the grief surrounding it.  For families, it is often a first experience on how to comfort one’s self as well as navigate and comfort other family members through grief’s journey.
