One of the most valuable things about The Ralph Site is the sense of community that exists amongst our friends. Anyone who has experienced the pain of losing a pet will naturally empathise with those currently going through the accompanying maelstrom of emotions, and will share the nagging sense of loss felt by those slowly adjusting to life without their best friend.
The Ralph Site exists to provide support to all those who have lost, or who are preparing for the loss, of a beloved companion.
We do this in two ways:
- The main site features a huge amount of practical advice for carers at every stage of the grieving process. It also hosts a number of members-only forums for those who have registered (you can do this by visiting HERE) and provides a caring and sensitive space for memorials to be posted.
- Our Facebook page allows individual stories to be shared, as well as facilitating personal interactions with others who have lost a much-loved pet.
You might like to know that we have also created a closed Facebook support group to complement our main Facebook page. This group currently has over 400 members so by joining you’ll have access to people who can share a wide range of experiences and coping techniques. As you may be aware, Facebook groups work differently to pages – allowing people who may be struggling to create on-going supportive links with others in the group. Notifications alert members when others have posted or commented, developing a mutually beneficial support network to help with the heartache of pet loss.
Our experience is that some people may be reluctant to share how they feel about their pets on an open public page, and therefore we have created the closed group to be private.
If you would like to join the group, all you need to do is click on the link here and leave a request to join.
And if you aren’t already Facebook friends with us, why not join the 40,000 others who have ‘liked’ our page? As well as featuring a daily memorial, we also post news and items of interest to pet carers; regularly sharing inspirational quotes and heart warming pet pictures and encouraging friends to do the same.
Because after all, a problem shared is a problem halved.
Thanks as always,
The Ralph Site
