The Houston SPCA no longer hosts an on-site, monthly pet loss support group.  However, we know the loss of a beloved pet can be a sad time for you and your family.  To help you through this difficult experience, we have compiled a list of websites and hotlines that you may want to contact following the loss of your pet. In addition, you may also want to check with your employer to see if your company offers an Employee Assistance Program (EPA).  For more information on this service, check with your company’s Human Resources Administrator.


Tufts University Pet Loss Support hotline: 508-839-7966.  Voicemail messages are returned on Wednesday during the summer.

Cornell University Pet Loss Support hotline: (607) 253-3932

University of Illinois @ Urbana – Champaign, College of Veterinary Medicine C.A.R.E. Pet Loss Hotline: 877-394-CARE (2273)

Washington State University Hotline: 1-866-266-8635.  Messages can be left 24-hours per day. Messages left during the summer will be returned Monday through Thursday and Saturday. E-mail:
