Our fall clean up was completed by our entire staff last weekend September 28th and 29th. It was an absolutely beautiful day to be outdoors helping the environment and bettering our community. We had a great time. Please remember not to litter, clean up trash when you can and help the world stay a prettier place whenever you can. Every good action makes a difference! Thank you.

Pets for Vets Dog Wash Fundraiser!
May 21st from 9am until 1pm

We are PROUD to take part in our community in any way the we can! This fundraiser was near and dear to our hearts... Pets for Vets is a organization that specifically selects shelter dogs facing euthanasia and train them to be emotionally support dogs for a veteran in need of a friend. Professional animal trainers rehabilitate the dogs using positive reinforcement and teach the dogs good manners to fit in a veterans life style. These dogs are healthy, up to date on all of their vaccines, micro-chipped and receive  reduced cost veterinary services for the rest of their life. We believe in this program and are so proud to be a part of their success! Thank you to all who come out and enjoy the fun and helped raise money for such an amazing cause! 

Girls Scouts Troup Tour!
May of 2016!

THESE are the girls of our future! We are so proud to have young, talented girls interested in getting their animal badge! This girl scout troop came in for some fun learning! We were able to show them the clinic cats, meet one of our employees bird, let them play with ferrets and we looked at a lot of xrays, surgical equipment, and other tumors/teeth/masses so they could see what it was all about! This was a rewarding experience for everyone! Glad to have them!
