What: Pet Loss Vigil
Where: The Winnipeg Humane Society
When: Monday, September 24, 2012 at 7 p.m.
Who: Please join us in celebrating the animals who have shared and touched your life. Tell the stories of your beloved pets and light a candle in their memory. Everyone is welcome to attend. The vigil will be lead by professional counsellor, Anne Mulders-Papadopoulos, and CEO of The Winnipeg Humane Society, Bill McDonald, will speak.
Why: If you are dealing with the loss of a pet and are in need of support, The Winnipeg Humane Society provides Pet Loss Support Group meetings in addition to our Pet Loss Vigil. Anne Mulders-Papadopoulos is a Certified Trauma Specialist, and will help facilitate recovery after the loss of a pet. The Pet Loss Vigil is an event where anyone mourning their late companion can meet without judgement, and pay tribute to the relationship they had with their pet through a candle lighting ceremony.
