The JSPCA are to host their first Pet Memorial Service on 8th June, in honour of World Pet Memorial Day.
The Pet Memorial Service marks the start of the JSPCA Pet Bereavement Support service launched for 2019.
All staff at the JSPCA underwent Pet Bereavement training in April this year, which was delivered by Blue Cross. This is not just to help their staff to support the public during a difficult time with the loss of their pet, but for themselves and each other, as compassion fatigue is high amongst those working in the animal industry.
The JSPCA would like to welcome everyone to the Pet Cemetery at First Tower for a bespoke Pet Memorial Service on 8th June in honour of World Pet Memorial Day. The service will commence at 2pm.
The JSPCA hopes that this will provide a time for members of the public who have sadly said goodbye to their pet, for those who currently have a beloved pet missing and for those working in the animal industry to come to a safe place to have a chat with the JSPCA Bereavement Team and reflect.
