FAAS will offer a pet loss support group at its South Shore location starting Monday, Oct. 21. The free, drop-in class will be offered every third Monday from 6 to 7 p.m. All ages are welcome.

The class will be taught by Suzanne Hayne, a licensed marriage and family therapist who lives in Alameda. Suzanne has an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University and was a children's program director at Lifeline Women's Shelter in San Francisco for four years. She is also a FAAS adopter and volunteer. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring a pet's photo or other personal memento of a pet that has passed. If you plan to attend the October class, please let us know by emailing
