image253493SAGE offers a free Pet Caregiver Support Group to any one of our clients from SAGE’s four Bay Area locations. Our group facilitator is Aileen Snodgrass, a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) and certified pet loss and bereavement counselor. She may be reached at (650) 931-8535 for more information or to RSVP. The Group meets monthly on Wednesday evenings in our Campbell and Redwood City facilities:

Campbell
2nd Wednesday of each month
7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Redwood City
3rd Wednesday
7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

The group offers a safe place for individuals and families to express their feelings and talk about their experiences related to the care of a pet who is receiving ongoing treatment for any illness, or for those who have experienced the loss of a pet. This group takes an open discussion format, with no set program or agenda. Some find it helpful to attend every month, while others come just once. Each family’s journey with an ill pet is uniquely personal and all are supported.

Caregivers are encouraged to attend, but we prefer that your pets stay at home while you attend our group.
