2019 Calendar of Events
We are happy to offer education in animal hospice care worldwide via our SPIRITS in Transition Online Classes. Besides participants from throughout the United States and Canada we have also had animal lovers join us from Europe, Australia, South Africa and Japan. We all share the same passion, and the wonderful feedback we are getting from everyone is heart warming!
Credits for taking our classes granted by several education providers, and CEU information for Veterinary Professionals are listed below the calendar table. While CEU’s are available to veterinary professionals, all educational offers are open to anyone with interest in hospice care for animals.
Access time is three months for Part 1 and one month for single sessions. If you would like to receive updates via e-mail including event schedules, please click here.
