Not sure where in NY you are looking for, but please email me, as I had a TERRIBLE experience with a NY support group the week of my loss.    It was such an unpleasant experience.   I was shocked at how difficult it is to find genuine help for this.

I am so deeply sorry for your loss.   I know the pain you feel.

Unfortunately, I don't know of any support groups in New York....but this site has been a life-saver for me.  Everyone has been so supportive and they know what you are going through.  I still have bad Layla went to Rainbow Bridge on June 27th...I'm still devastated.  I think about her every day...I miss her every day.....and I still cry every day.  It hasn't gotten easier for me but when I just can't take the pain anymore I log on to this site and get everything out....and the responses I have received have helped me deal with it. 

I have guilt too.  My baby was hit by a car.  We weren't home at the time.  My husband's friends were at out house and said they would put her in her kennel when they left...but that didn't happen...I should have put her in there...she was my responsibility...not theirs.

I hope you can find some comfort in this group.  Like I said before...this site has been my saving grace.  I am so sorry for your loss.

I was given this name from a well-respected doctor at the animal medical center in new york city.  Her name is Dr. Susan Cohen.  He said she was head of their grief counseling .  I didn't contact her because I am in Illinois.  I contacted the doctor because I was trying to get details about my dog's death.  I got the doctor's name from a very nice poster on this message board.

Dear Lisapo,

I am sorry to hear that you are having such a rough time right now.  I am not a professional but I do live on Long Island and thought maybe if you wanted to get some coffee or something just to sit and talk, I'll listen.  It helps to just sit and talk to realize that you're not alone.  If you don't feel comfortable meeting, maybe a phone call might help. In the meantime, I'll keep my ears open for a group for you.

Let me know if you would like to talk and I'll send you my phone number.
