April, our pup is doing fantastic and we thank you for your overwhelming loving attention.  Hearing great things about your new clinic. Happy to see a non-profit clinic come to the Smoky Mountains area.

Never thought I would capture those feral cats, they were so scared and cold.  Thanks to your great instructions and tender care our cats are really getting along wonderfully.  Look forward to your pet clinic opening soon so we can start saving on some pet services.
