Angel Pets Conference and Expo Coming to Asheville

The Angel Pets Conference and Expo will be held in Asheville on Saturday, June 8, at the Renaissance Hotel. The conference, held in Salon A, is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the expo opening 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This pioneering, unique, and much-needed conference covers many topics on senior pet care needs, end-of-life care, caregiver support and grief healing. The conference highlights important medical topics for senior animal needs and resources, assessing animal quality-of-life, explaining animal hospice and palliative care, and covering the medical, practical and emotional considerations for pets at the end-of-life transition. Special focus will also be on grief healing from pet loss for ourselves and family, which is often complex and under-addressed in our society. Some presentations offer professional CE credit.

At the expo, held in Salons B/C, there will be over forty-five vendors who specialize in services and products for pets, senior pet care needs, end-of-life, caregiver support, grief healing and other pet support topics. Select featured vendor presentations will be held throughout the day.

Each conference attendee will get a welcome tote bag. The conference will include morning coffee/tea/juice, muffins and bagels; the afternoon break will offer beverages, cookies, snacks and nuts.
