The loss of a pet can be overwhelming and difficult.  For everyone who has lost a companion animal, please accept our deepest sympathy. You may still be mourning your absent best friend and question if you will ever feel right again.  The good news is, you are not alone!

Frederick County is an extremely pet friendly community, and among it's many resources, is home to support groups and telephone help for those trying to cope with the loss of a pet. Many of these resources are at little or no charge to Frederick County residents.

We encourage you explore these and other resources, and don't face the greaving process alone.
