Description of work "We had a cat [Claude] that was extremely ill," Boward says. "It was determined that he would have to be euthanized unless someone could devote a ton of time, energy and medications to this animal. Rather than putting the animal to sleep, the veterinary technician herself decided to take the animal home with her and give it the time, treatments and medicines it required to maintain a life."
Member comments "Our relations with this facility show just how much the place will advocate for animals and do whatever they can to preserve a life if or when it is possible," Boward says. "We feel fortunate to have found such a good facility that is obviously so humane to animals."
