Pet Loss Support Group
Participant Consent Form


I understand that the Sacramento SPCA provides bereavement support rather than therapy or counseling.  As a participant in the group, I will respect the confidentiality of all information shared by other members.  I also expect that what I discuss will be held in strict confidence by the facilitator(s) and other participants.

  • Information shared will be held in confidence except when the following legal limitations apply:
  • The participant threatens bodily injury to another group member.
  • The participant is suicidal.
  • There is reasonable suspicion that abuse or neglect toward a child or dependent adult has or will occur.
  • Ordered by a court.
  • The client provides written permission to disclose information.
  • A Worker’s Compensation claim has been filed.
