Pet Loss Grief Counseling

We know how hard it is to lose a pet and we are very sorry for your loss. If you have lost a pet and would like to talk to someone about it, please call one of the numbers below:

     Dr. Coppola has a Master’s Degree in Family Therapy and a Doctorate in Clinical Hypnotherapy. He also has a Doctorate of Divinity. He studied and completed his Chaplaincy program at UCLA. He specializes in helping those in grief and crisis by comforting them spiritually and emotionally. He has been a minister for many years. He currently has 2 dogs and 2 cats.

Dr. Deena Case-Pall (805) 491-2337   Website:

She has a Ph.D. in Psychology from Claremont Graduate University.

This pretty girl is KC. (Maybe it stands for “Kinda Cute”). KCutie has been at the Humane Society since January 06, 2014. When it is time to relax, KC is the perfect lap-warmer! (As long as she gets a scratch behind her ears of course!)

KC is a spayed orange Pomeranian. The shelter staff think she is about 7 years old.

Her adoption fee of $75 includes spay, vaccinations, free veterinarian visit, and microchip implantation. For more information on KC,  or other adoptable animals, please call 805 646-6505. You can meet her Monday through Saturday from 10:00am to 5:30pm.
