"I contacted Brenda Brown at Grief About Pets after losing three of my dogs in a short time. Brenda was very

 helpful in the process of learning to deal with losses. She is a kind and compassionate person, who truly cares 

about helping people. It is comforting to have someone to share with and know they will listen and understand."

 - Mary, GAPS client
