At the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area, we know the special bond that people have with their pets. We understand that the loss of a pet can be one of the most devastating experiences that one you face. It is natural and necessary to grieve when a pet dies, just as you would when any loved one dies. We are here to help with our Healing Haven of HSHA Support Program. Below you will find resources to assist you and your loved ones during this difficult time.

To schedule one-on-one counseling or to simply ask a few questions, Ruth Rudderow, a trained pet loss bereavement counselor is available to help. She can be reached at 717-599-9477 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
