Support Group

SAGE offers a free Pet Caregiver Support Group to any one of our clients from SAGE’s five Bay Area locations.

Our group facilitator is veterinary social worker Chelsey Nisbet, MSW, ASW.

SAGE Pet Caregiver Support Group

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. Register to attend a session today!

The group now meets twice a month

You must register below for each session you would like to attend.

VIRTUALLY on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 7-8:30pm


IN PERSON on the 4th Saturday of each month from 10-11:30am at SAGE Campbell

IMPORTANT: If you plan to attend multiple support group sessions, please register for each session separately and be sure to verify the information linked to the date of the session within the confirmation email. For these sessions, we recommend using your computer or the GoToMeeting App.
