What does it mean when our mission statement says that we strive to see our actions through the eyes of our patients and to “minimize separation from the people they love” The “separation from the people they love” part is pretty simple.

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!

This is Jen with José and Hala. Hala is Jose's best buddy and partner in crime. She insisted on being in the photo!

My dog José is a great dog with an interesting story.

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.

Becky, beloved pet of Karen Youncke, was a faithful and devoted friend. "She was my precious little girl. She was always there for me," says Karen. "I adopted her when she was 3-years-old from a Daschund rescue group. She was so patient and devoted to me. We did everything together. She especially loved to go walking on the Biltmore Estate. In fact, I couldn't say the word 'Biltmore' around her because she would get so excited. All the staff knew her there and she could walk and chase ducks, which was one of her favorite things to do. Even when she had to have a back operation and couldn't...
