Pet Loss and Grief Discussion

On Tuesday, April 25 a program on pet loss and grief will be held at 4:00 p.m. in the Science Hall Atrium. All are welcome to attend to celebrate the special bond we share with our animals. The event is sponsored by the Counseling Center, Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation (ABEC), and Campus Ministry.

Pets come into our lives to teach us about love. When they depart, they teach us about loss. If you are an animal lover, you have stories to share. All members of the Canisius College community are invited to contribute a special memory or photo of your beloved pets to the Memory Wall display in the library throughout the month of April. If you would like to contribute, please visit the table adjacent to the display case on the main floor of the library.
