Bridging Rainbows anticipatory grief support group

Welcome to the Bridging Rainbows anticipatory grief support group!

If you are here, it is likely that the time your are left with your companion animal is unfortunately very limited. We feel your pain. A sudden diagnosis of a terminal illness of our beloved companion animal (whether homed or un-homed) throws our world upside down. There is shock, denial, disbelief and the we try to figure out what we can do to prolong the life of our companion animal whose days with us are numbered. We bargain, we try to reason out, we do all in our capacity for a miracle to happen. It is foolish to say we will prepare ourselves for the loss, but the reality is, we never can. Anticipatory grief of impending loss of companion animals is a terrible feeling that so many of us go through. While we cannot undo what is written in destiny, we certainly can come together in the hour of need to give you the strength you need to make the most of the time you are left with your companion animal.
