Pet Loss Group


The loss of a pet can leave a very empty space in our hearts. Animals spend their lives giving us unconditional love, and when they leave us it can be very difficult to go on without them. AHI has teamed with DeJohn Pet Services (a division of DeJohn-Flynn Mylott Funeral Homes) to start a pet loss support group. The group is free of charge and open to anyone who has lost a pet or is facing this difficult time.

The group facilitator is Patrica DeJohn, MA, a counselor in private practice with Dr. Thomas Frazier and Associates. She is a member of the Association for Death Education & Counseling, and the Northeast Ohio Bereavement Council.

The Pet Loss Support group meets on the third Thursday of every month in AHI's multipurpose room from 6:30pm - 8pm.  Please visit our "Event's" page for the next date.

Please call us at 440-946-2800 to reserve your seat.
