Our Accidental Impacts team sometimes receives comments or requests from individuals who have accidentally harmed or killed a pet or another animal. This is a serious and heartbreaking trauma that can lead to posttraumatic stress or moral injury. If you are in this situation, we encourage you to peruse the website for helpful information.
The mission of Accidental Impacts is to support those who have unintentionally harmed or killed another person. We recognize, however, that you may be feeling very distressed, sad, and guilty.
At this time, we invite those dealing with harm to a pet or another animal to provide comments on this page. Accidental Impacts volunteers will not respond to these comments (although we will remove anything inappropriate), but you can respond to each other. Please limit your comments about pets to this page.
We hope this is helpful, and we look forward to the time when we can expand our mission to more fully address this issue.
