What a wonderful gathering and an amazing group of people and resources. Thanks to all who had the courage, strength and compassion to spend an entire day with such difficult topics as end-of-life and grief. This event happened because of you and because there is a need. This conference and gathering is to better help our pets and ourselves.  Thank you for sharing…and your participation in this pioneering and progressive event to improve pet end-of-life care and healing from pet loss.

Hello All-

The Pre-Conference Social Friday, April 25th from 7-8:30pm location has changed to the Four Points Sheraton Chophouse Lounge. 22 Woodfin Street – Same location as the conference. (It is no longer at the Battery Book and Wine bar). This space is cozy and has more flexibility and options for meals, appetizers or just hanging out. Please let me know if you have any questions about it. The parking is free and easy. I apologize for the change, but for logistical reasons it made most sense.

Keep in mind that the hotel is asking for a final head count on Monday April 14th, if you know of anyone who is still looking to join us.

The Angel Pets Vendor Expo will be free and open to the public during the event. Please help us spread the word.

We are starting to gather ideas for new topics to be added next year such as ‘Helping the Grieving Pet’.

We also will be adding blog articles so make sure you join the list to receive these.

In kindred spirit,Dog Love

Leigh
