Our Story

Caring For Allendale’s Best Friends For 25 Years

Our love for animals drives us to do our very best for every patient.  We practice fear-free care techniques to make visits as pleasant and stress-free as possible for every animal. 

We are positive, friendly, and empathetic.  We take tremendous pride in our committment to bettering the lives of our patients and their owners. To that end, we value simple, clear communication with our clients.

Caring for animals isn’t just what we do, it’s who we are.
