The average length of employment for the staff at AHNA is over 10 years!  This means tremendous experience and skill for the care of your pet, and it also means that these people have been to a lot of our holiday parties over the years! Some were there for the very first one in 1978!

Along with activities such as our Pet Food Drive which collects food and treats for needy pets, each year the staff at Animal Hospital of North Asheville sponsor several of Buncombe County's foster children at Christmas. Our Client Care Team Supervisor, Cathy, contacts Buncombe County Foster Care Association and gets the names, ages, sizes of each child and a list of things that the children need or want. Cathy puts all the items on cards and our staff members take the cards, buy gifts, and wrap them. This year Sheri, another member of our Client Care Team, volunteered to do much of the...

Halloween can be a frightening time for pet owners across the country. It can be scary for our furry friends too. The AmericanAnimal Hospital Association encourages pet owners to protect their four-legged family members this October by being mindful of their F.E.A.R. – food, environment, attire, and recovery.

Food

Halloween means candy and tasty treats are plentiful and easily accessible to young children and pets. Candy, especially chocolate, is toxic to animals and can cause vomiting, restlessness,...

In order to give the tree its best chance for survival, we sought advice from Quality Forward and from other arborists on how to care for it. We hoped that the recommended infusions, aerating of the soil, feedings, and...

The aim of Project Connect is to provide onsite barrier-free services to the homeless population of Asheville-Buncombe while facilitating community awareness and participation. Although Project connect had tried to help the...
