The Asheville Angel Pets Conference, which will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 8, covers many topics on Senior pet needs, End-of-life care, caregiver support topics and grief healing.  

The goal is to help the community become more knowledgeable and comfortable in caring for our pets (and ourselves) during this difficult, but inevitable time in our pets' lives. The conference will be held at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel at 31 Woodfin St.

The Angel Pets Conference highlights important medical topics of Senior Animal needs and resources, assessing Animal Quality of Life, explaining animal Hospice and Palliative care, covering the medical, practical, 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.

Understanding more about these areas will help us become better equipped to handle this critical time. Being aware of the resources available can be tremendously helpful and healing. Tribute video will be played at end for attendees’ pets. This is a seated, educational, ticketed event. Some presentations offer professional CE credits.

Angel Pets Vendor Expo: A separate event, Open to the public, will be the same date/location, June 8 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Renaissance Hotel (Salon B/C). There will be more than 40 vendors specializing in services and products for Senior pet care needs, End-of-life, caregiver support, grief healing and other pet supportive topics. Select featured vendor presentations throughout the day.
