Pet Loss Web Sites

There are many web sites available to help us understand and acknowledge our loss and pay tribute to our beloved animals. We've listed what we've experienced as some of the most helpful, and also those which honor specific species or breeds. We realize there are dozens of others sites. If you know of one that you believe we really should include here, email and let us know. We'd like to thank the people behind these sites for all the love and work which is invested in creating and maintaining such projects for the benefit of animal grievers everywhere.

  • Lesley Heathcote ~ Pet Portrait Artist
    Lesley is an extremely dedicated caregiver to the animals in her family, including a number of feral cats to whom she is devoted. She is also an exceptionally talented artist. Her portraits are so realistic it's as if the animals come alive on the canvas. This portrait is of Tigertail, a very special cat who Lesley has loved and cared for for a long time.

Prayer Flags~ purchase here
Product-prayer-flags_300px These beautiful prayer flags have attractive paw prints on four flags and a simple yet comforting quote on the fifth middle flag: "You have gone ahead and nothing is the same, leaving paw prints in my heart that will always remain." Text from the web site: We want to stay connected to that wonderful soul that has gone ahead of us. Let these flags be that connection.Tibetans believe the prayers of these flags become a permanent part of the universe as the images fade from exposure to the elements and the wind blows through them. Just as life moves on and is replaced by new life, our own healing can begin, our hearts can mend and find room to love another four legged friend. When we send our feelings on the wind we trust nature to turn our memories from sadness to gratitude for having loved and been loved so unconditionally.
