|Pet Loss Support|
The Humane Society of Greater Miami understands the unique human/animal bond. Losing a pet can be devastating and it is important to honor and recognize the feelings. Grief, confusion, guilt and depression are all typical responses to the death of a loved one, including a pet.
There is no one way, a right way, or a wrong way to express grief. Let yourself mourn and experience whatever feeling comes over you. The relationship you had with your pet, how old your pet was when he passed, how long you had your pet, and your cultural beliefs may all play a part in how you react to your loss.
You can honor the loss of your loved one with a Memorial Gift. Click here to find out more information.

When to Get a New Pet
No one can say when it is the right time to get a new pet; it won’t be fair to you or your pet if you rush into a decision that you may regret later. You will know when the time is right; don’t let anyone to tell you how much time to take to grieve – only you will know. When the time is right, visit our Soffer and Fine Adoption Center or adopt your new best friend from any rescue group or Humane Society.
