In response to recent COVID-19 concerns, we are writing to assure our clients that we are taking recommended precautions.
We are currently open for business with normal operating hours amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As a hospital we already have strict disinfecting/cleaning protocols in place, but we have increased our efforts during this time. Keeping our clients, patients, and staff healthy is our top priority.
We are offering concierge service during this time- we are asking clients to remain in their vehicles, and we will greet you at the vehicle to retrieve your pet for treatment. We will keep in touch with you by phone for treatment plans, updates, questions, etc. We do ask if you are sick with possible COVID-19 symptoms, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, have been exposed to anyone with symptoms, or are under quarantine that you have someone else transport your pet if at all possible (or call the office to discuss options).
There is not evidence that pets can spread COVID-19 to people, or that they might be a source of infection. Please see this link for more information.
Rescuing an animal is a wonderful option for some families. Animals find their way into rescue agencies for a variety of reasons. Some may have been accidentally lost or abandoned. Others may have been given up due to their owners' illness, death, or other change in circumstance. You may not be able to know the history of the animal you adopt, but you will still bring home a fine companion--one who is grateful to you for giving him a second chance at a home and happiness.
All rescue groups carefully screen the animals in their care for health and temperament before offering them for adoption. The animals are often already housebroken and know some basic obedience. Rescue agencies provide a sanctuary for animals in need. Shelters provide animal veterinary care, spay/neuter, shots, high quality food, a temporary foster home not a kennel, love, and placement into a home for life under a contract that dictates their humane care.
