The Pet Bereavement Support Service is run by Blue Cross and, since its launch in 1994, it has helped thousands of pet owners of all ages and from all walks of life.
Volunteers respond to calls and emails on the support line everyday. They are volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. All have experienced the loss of a pet and have completed a training course. They offer a “listening ear” and give time, patience and encouragement to pet owners as they work through their loss.
The Pet Bereavement Support Service offers practical information on pet loss for friends, family members and others who have contact with pet owners.
Sharing your pet loss with people who understand
Sometimes it helps to share feelings with someone who knows from personal experience how distressing the loss of a pet can be, and who will listen with understanding and compassion.
The loss of a pet impacts everyone differently. Call the support line on 0800 096 6606 (UK only including Northern Ireland). The support line is open from 8.30am - 8.30pm everyday. All calls are free and confidential from a landline. If calling from a mobile phone, some phone networks may charge. Support is provided by trained volunteers. The service does not offer a counselling service but is able to offer emotional support and information for pet owners who may be experiencing the loss of a pet.
