The end of a relationship with a special animal can be a very difficult time in your life. When a beloved animal dies, is in failing health, is lost or stolen, or must be placed in a new home, the end of a relationship with a special animal can be a very difficult time in your life.

The compassionate veterinary students at the University of Illinois who staff the C.A.R.E. Pet Loss Support Hotline understand the emotional attachment that people can form to animals of any kind.
