Pet Loss and Bereavement Certified Counseling Service

Mojo’s Hope and Alaska's KAAATs are pleased to add that one of our​ founders successfully completed the pet loss counseling course through the organization, The Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement. With this certification, Mojo's Hope and Alaska's KAAATs offers counseling support and more to our PAWspice Community Program. We want to be able to continue to offer this type of emotional support for people going through this very difficult process. 

Death can be such an uncomfortable topic for many people. We think it's important to see it, this last stage, and demystify it, make it less scary and sad while honoring the ones we love. Our own experiences with the loss of our beloved pets have helped to shape our understanding and provide us with the opportunity to help others.

As an animal advocacy organization and rescue group for animals with special needs, we want to be able to offer support for people who go through this difficult process, before, during, and afterward. We are offering this support in whatever capacity needed. Maybe you need a ride, maybe you need to talk through the process, or maybe you may need someone to hold your hand as you say your final goodbye. We will help to guide you through these steps by offering compassionate, empathetic, and individualized support.

For support, you can reach us at [email protected], visit us on our Facebook page or give us a call at 907-230-6394.

(Note: I am a full time SPED teacher, so my availability to respond is generally in the evenings and weekends)
