Bridging Rainbows companion animal loss support group

Welcome to the Bridging Rainbows companion animal loss support group!

Losing a companion animal, whether homed (often termed as pets) or un-homed (strays or wildlife) is emotionally devastating for those of us who are profoundly bonded to them. In the time that follows thereafter, when we experience a strange vacuum, there are those ifs and buts, the guilt and the anger. We are here to share your grief and stand in solidarity with you if you have lost your beloved stray you cared for or the pet you had at home. Our bond with companion animals does not come an end due to physical seperation. To join our support group, please write at or contact us using the form. Please do mention your name and also the context in regard to which you would like to attend the support group meetings.

Our support group meetings (a first in India for fellow Indians and compassionate citizens world over) are held every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month at 2030 hours (830PM) Indian Standard Time (IST). We bridge time zones too, so any part of the world you are from, you are most welcome to join us. We stand united together in the hour of grief.

No one ever should suffer in silence!
