Comforting Prayers for the Loss of a Beloved Dog or Cat
Believing in heaven or an afterlife doesn’t erase the grief of a dog or cat’s death, but it can help. These prayers for the loss of a pet will comfort and help you cope with the death of your dog or cat. As you pray for comfort, peace and healing after your pet’s death, remember the most important prayer you could ever say: Thank you.

“Laurie, I lost my husband a year ago and our dog has never been the same,” writes Elisa on Do Dogs Grieve? How to Help Your Dog Adjust After Loss. “Rufus, our Golden Retriever, had a change in appetite and demeanor after my husband died. I fully believe our dog was grieving my husband’s death – and he is still grieving. Rufus and I hold each other and cry. It may sound odd, to hold your dog while weeping, but it brings me great comfort. I miss my husband very much and am so grateful our dog is seeing me through grief. My only regret is that my pain is probably prolonging the grieving process for my dog. I hope others who are bereaved, especially pet owners whose dogs are grieving loss, are comforted knowing that we will all be together in the end. xoxo Elisa P.S. If you write a blog post that shares comforting prayers after the loss of a pet, I would be grateful.”
I’ve never been a fan of rote or recited prayers. As a writer, I would much rather write my own prayers of grief and lamentations to God in my journal. But words don’t come naturally to every person, and grief makes words and prayers even more difficult. After losing your dog or cat, you may not even how to pray, who to pray to, or what to say. I have a few comforting prayers to share with you, to help you cope after the loss of your beloved animal companion.
May you find peace, hope and healing in the Father’s warm embrace. May you feel the light of the Holy Spirit and the faith of Jesus Christ.

And here may you find comforting prayers, encouragements, and suggestions for saying goodbye after the loss of a pet. Amen.
Comforting Ideas and Heartfelt Prayers for the Loss of a Pet
God may not erase our grief or pain, but our faith and God’s presence can help us walk through it.
Father in Heaven,
Bring comfort and healing to those who are mourning the deaths of their beloved pets. You know their pain, for you lost your own beloved son. You know the depth of sadness and grief your children feel when they lose a dog or cat who was so dear, near, and special to them. You know the emptiness of a home that no longer has that furry little (or big!) creature; you know the emptiness of a heart that longs for the comforting touch of a beloved cat or dog.
I thank you for the gift of our pets, for the love these creatures give us, for the life that they offer, and for the chance to love them like we love nothing and nobody else on earth.
I pray for comfort, peace, and healing as we let go of the cats and dogs that we loved so dearly.

Comforting Prayers for the Loss of a Pet
Comforting Prayers for the Loss of a Pet
Why is the death of a cat or dog so devastating? Because our pets bring us a depth of companionship and love that nothing else on earth offers.
“Our relationships with dogs can be even more satisfying than our human relationships, if for no other reason than dogs provide us with such unconditional, uncritical positive feedback,” writes Frank McAndrew in Getting Over Rover: Why Our Grief Over a Dog Is So Intense on Psychology Today. “Interacting with dogs makes us feel good, and just looking at them can make us smile. Dog owners score higher on measures of well-being and, on average, they are happier than people who own cats and those who own no pets at all.”
The loss of a cat or dog is painful because we are not losing just one pet; we actually experience multiple losses at the same time. We may be losing our primary companion, a source of unconditional love, a “life witness” who provides security and comfort to us, a best friend, a link to ourselves, and even a part of who we were and are and hope to be.
The loss of a pet cat or dog dramatically changes your daily life at home and in the neighborhood. Pet loss is even more profound than the loss of most friends and relatives, because of the extreme and sometimes sudden changes in lifestyle and routine.
Prayers for forgiveness and healing
“If I only I would’ve known my dog was that sick, I would have taken him to the veterinarian sooner,” say many readers on How to Deal With Guilty Feelings After Your Dog’s Death.
Loving pet owners often feel guilt and regret after their dogs or cats die. They tell themselves they could have held on longer, given more mediation, tried one more tactic to avoid death…but the truth is that a dog or cat’s life is finite. There is no value in replaying the “if only” scenarios when you’re coping the loss of a family pet. Instead of looking back at the “if onlys”, focus on saying good-bye to your dog or cat — perhaps with a pet memorial service or a celebration of life. Say prayers that honor your dog or cat’s life and memory, and ask for peace, healing, and self-forgiveness.
Surrender to the natural cycle of life and death, which is what God’s world seems to be founded on.
