Slide We are truly fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful people who allow us to do what we love. We wholeheartedly believe that taking care of those who take care of us is important, which is why we take time each year to give back to the local community and our team. Giving Back

Giving Back to the Community

We host the Dog Dayz of Summer event each year to benefit local animal shelters. What began in 2012 as a simple idea with handmade signs has evolved into a full-fledged festival in our hospital parking lot, complete with local vendors, live music, inflatables, face painting, and raffle prizes. The local police department often showcases their police dogs by demonstrating a criminal takedown, and the fire department brings a fire truck for kids to check out. We open up our hospital for tours, and our team spends time getting to know clients on a more personal level and meeting new people. Money raised through raffle ticket sales, vendor fees, and local restaurant “dine and donate” coupons support local animal shelters, such as Whiskers, Tails, and Ferals.

Slide We could not provide excellent care for pets without our dedicated team of skilled professionals. By making our team a top priority—right up there with patient care—we mentally and physically equip them to deliver top-notch care to pets every day. Ways we help our team relax and recharge include:
  • Closing for for an hour in the middle of the day so our team can eat and recharge
  • Decreasing the number of days and hours worked during the pandemic for our entire team to improve and maintain mental and physical health, while continuing to pay for their normally scheduled hours in order to avoid any financial burden on our staff
  • Closing for a week over Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2020
  • Providing our team the time and financial resources to attend the Annual Western Veterinary Conference for a vast amount of continued education in order to provide our patients with the most up to date medicine that is available today
  • Taking our entire team to Disneyland in 2016
We think of our team as family, and go to great lengths to ensure they are mentally and financially cared for so they can give their best to the pets we serve.
