Animal Talks is our monthly discussion and meditation group where we have conversations about many interesting animal-related topics. Animal Talks is also a support group for those looking for help in the sadness and hurt after a pet passes. For anyone who needs to talk with people who care, who need the reassurance and comfort of others who have also lost and wept, Animal Talks welcomes you.
We are an open, caring, safe one-hour “coming together” for those who love animals, those with us here, or in spirit.
Come as you are, with whatever is on your mind. We meet from 5-6 pm every second Sunday of the month at the lovely Stratford Street Church in West Roxbury, MA.
Please either register below or email Reverend Kaleel at Kaleel@theothermecoaching.com or Kaleel@associationanimalchaplains.com

“…should you or anyone in Boston need grief counseling due to the loss of a pet, Kaleel Sakakeeny does what I do in NY and NJ in your neck of the woods. He is brilliant and a true asset to the Animal Welfare world."
Chaplain Matty Guiliano
I’m an ordained Animal Chaplain and Credentialed Pet Loss and Bereavement Counselor. I’m also an ordained minister. I won’t marry animals, but I can marry people and perform all kinds of other services!
I have an MA and MS degree, and certification in Reiki, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Animal Communication, which helps me tremendously in my work with people, and animals.
Please contact me directly to talk. The death of your pet is too painful to go through alone!
Also, we have some very helpful discussions and topics on our Facebook page, and a lot of passion among our followers. Please take a look.
Kaleel During the Blessing the Animals-in-the-Field on the Feast of St. Francis Day
The yearly animal blessings is an event I look forward to deeply.
All those beautiful faces, the eyes of the people and their animal companions, gathered under the sky. I co-pastor this event with community faith leaders, and while the blessings can be in a church, I prefer the open field. We all belong in nature.
St. Francis reminds us that all is good and beautiful about our connection with our pets and we honor his lessons on the day of our animal blessings.
Watch this space for upcoming dates.
Cost info here:
We need to charge something to keep our work going. We think $35 an hour is fair or your best donation for the animals and the work. Thank you.
Our animals are always happy to see us. They delight in our presence, and they trust us and count on us totally. The loss of an animal friend is often the loss of knowing how to love innocently and the fear that we will not love that simply or totally again.
