Pet Loss Support Hotline

The Tufts Pet Loss Support Hotline seeks to serve the community-at-large by providing both a resource for people grieving the loss of a pet, and an opportunity for our veterinary students to acquire the skills needed for pet loss and grief counseling.


We are supported primarily by private donations. It is the financial support of individuals, veterinary practices, private foundations, and pet-related industries that make the Pet Loss Support Hotline possible.

Call Today

Callers are assured the assistance of a caring, supportive, respectful, non-judgmental person when they contact our Pet Loss Support Hotline.
