Thanks Lynnea for always being so welcoming and kind. I look forward to spending time in your group each week learning and listening to my fellow pet loving peers sharing about how much joy and healing they receive from their fury companions. I enjoyed all the valuable resources shared today and they're definitely going into my repertoire of resources

I felt unsafe that the peer leader, Lynaeus, did not follow the group guidelines for stating trigger warnings before sharing triggering topics. She went into descriptive detail regarding injuries from abuse without any trigger warning.

Lynnea talks about her own trauma at length and with details that are unnecessary. She takes up group time, away from members, by talking about her own stories for long periods of time. That's not good facilitation, that's using a group as your own personal therapy session. I appreciate the work she's doing, but the way she's doing it is not as good as it could be. That said, Moses is an excellent facilitator.

The fact that Lynnea uses group to strengthen animal/human bond is reflected in how she cares for her own pup. Her Love and respect of animals is apparent. I Love the resources!

I wish I could get directed to somewhere I could to have a social life while getting rid of all of the damage being done to my reputation.

You can tell Lynnea has a heart for animals. I appreciate the different topics about our animal babies, b/c it makes me think about the different ways to care for them. We freely share resources

I really enjoyed today’s group because your compassion, kindness and love for animals (and your participants) is exactly why I keep coming back to your group! Thanks Lynnea for ALWAYS keeping this space safe, for your unwavering support, and for always making “me” feel welcomed. I truly appreciate you
