Rescue and Shelter Open House


Join us for an opportunity to form partnerships in pet care.

Take a tour of our hospital, meet Dr. Torok and find out about our rescue/shelter pricing to see how we can help you achieve your goals in animal care and rescue.

We have the ability to see pets for acute care and emergencies as well as routine vaccination and wellness to prep them for adoption.  Dr. Torok is also a very skilled surgeon and can accomplish a large number of procedures that may otherwise have needed a specialty referral and increases expenses for individual animals.

Light refreshments will be served and door prizes raffled.

We look forward to meeting you and partnering for the best animal care for our rescue pets.

AAHA Accreditation

Scheduled date for final Accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association.

This is important as AAHA sets minimum standards of care for their accredited hospitals regarding anesthesia administration and monitoring, extended vaccine protocols, analgesia and accurate record-keeping.  Without these standards, animal hospitals may not be in keeping with current standards of care.

Our pending accreditation shows our dedication to the highest level of care for every pet that comes through our doors.

 Our accreditation is pending final inspection - expected by 11/22/2017

rabies day 2017.png

In observance of World Rabies Day 2017, we will be offering:

FREE 1 yr Rabies vaccinations from 9/25-27, 2017

This is a topic very close to Dr. Torok as she volunteers with a group called Mission Rabies, which works to eradicate Rabies in domestic animals in developing countries to prevent spillover into the human population.

Most recently Dr. Torok was in Tanzania, East Africa, trekking upwards of 20 kilometers per day with a team of 20 volunteers from around the world.
