Losing a pet really sucks. That?s just the truth. From the minute they come into our lives and hearts, they are part of the family. They join vacations, sit with us while we eat and comfort us when we are sad. When their time comes to cross that Rainbow Bridge, we are left with big holes in hearts.

How do you fill that ache of a pet death? While a pet sympathy card doesn?t fix things, it helps knowing you?re surrounded by love. It can be tricky finding the right words to make a person feel better after losing someone so important. And we?re here to help with a few pet sympathy card message suggestions to help ease the pain of no longer hearing those sweet little paws scampering across the floor.

Remind Them of the Good Times With Their Pet

When a pet dies away, it can put you in a tricky spot. Bringing them up may be painful and do we really want to cause even more hurt? But our pets are all that is good in life. Reminding people of the amazing times and great things about their beloved pet will bring a smile to their faces.

?Thinking of you after the loss of your sweet cat. He will be missed by many but will live on with the precious memories he left behind.?

?I am so sorry that your sweet kitty died. She will continue to live on in your happy memories of her, and she will patiently be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge to reunite with you once again!?

Don?t Be Afraid of Silly Pet Memories

Let?s be real, our pets are perfect to us but even they have those moments when we have to shake our heads. Bring up those moments. Remember the time when Sparky pooped in your shoe and then you put it on? Sure, it was frustrating then but it later becomes one of those things you think about and laugh. And in this moment, those times are the ones we want to remember.

?I want you to know that I?m sending all the hugs and love. Your sweet, spunky girl was truly a family member, and she will be missed beyond words. I?m sorry I?m not there. I know she?s back with her best bud and probably bossing them around and stealing their treats right now.?

?I am so sorry for the lost of your sweet cat. He was a beautiful kitty and very loved. I remember the first time we met and his gorgeous eyes. Find joy in the memories you have and trust that he is in a good place and in good company at the Rainbow Bridge.?

Send a Pet Photo

Maybe you have some amazing photos of the adorable pet that has passed. Be sure to include some! It may seem a bit weird but pets are like children. Photos will allow the owner to remember their pets as they were, loving and sweet. And after the hurt isn?t so bad, they?ll be able to look at photos and smile.

?I?m so sorry for the loss of your sweet dog. I hope the memories you have of him help soften the sadness that you?re feeing. I?m happy I was able to meet and cuddle with him. I wish I was able to experience his whole life. He was the sweetest puppy!?

?Those ?just a dog? people can go sit on a cactus. You?ll miss her always and no other will ever be able to take her place. Pics sent to you with nothing but love.?

Donate to a Pet Charity

A great way to honor a lost pet is to donate to a pet-related charity. When you?re picking a charity, consider the location the pet was originally adopted from or a place that has a connection to the pet. Making a donation in honor of a lost pet is a great way to remember them.

?No one can truly understand why dogs are called ?mom?s best friend? until they have experienced the loss of one.?

??If there are no dogs in heaven when I die, I want to go whoever they went.? ? Will Rogers?

It can be a comfort to hear how much a pet?s life was enriched by their forever family. Don?t be afraid to let the owners know how much they did for the pet and how lucky their furry friend was to have them.

?I?m sorry to hear to hear about your dog?s recent passing. You gave her a great life. She was always super happy and smiling in every photo. I hope that you take comfort in the many cherished memories of her.?
