Pet Loss Support Group


The death of a beloved pet, the difficult decision of euthanasia, the daily reality that your companion is no longer around are the heartaches faced as a pet guardian/owner. Very often there is no one who truly understands the feelings of extreme sadness and emptiness you are experiencing. St. Hubert’s does.  

For more than 25 years St. Hubert’s has offered free group support sessions, providing an understanding environment to openly share your feelings or grief. The group sessions are facilitated by two professional counselors: Nancy Saxton-Lopez, MSW, CSW, ACSW and Judith D. Bess, LCSW-R.

Group sessions are offered at St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, 575 Woodland Avenue, Madison, NJ.

  • First Tuesday of each month from 7:30 - 9:00 pm.

  • Third Sunday of each month from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.

If you have any questions please call 973-377-7094 during normal business hours. To arrange for private sessions, please call 201-638-7404 for Nancy Saxton-Lopez or Judith D. Bess at 973.454.0728 (There is a fee for private sessions.)
