FAH participates in organized programs designed to improve animal welfare - see below. These include past and present spay/neuter programs, emergency diagnostics/surgery for shelter animals, donations for pet disaster relief, and assisting owners recover lost pets. Further, FAH tries to help place foster animals with potential new owners and recommends the local no-kill shelters for bereaved owners or willing "new parents" seeking new pets. The staff also visits and educates young people on the challenges and necessity of responsible pet ownership.
As an animal hospital, our facilities are not adequate to accommodate both patients and rescue animals. Therefore, we generally do not take in homeless animals or have animals for adoption. We are proud to assist local rescue groups in the medical care of rescue animals and refer our clients to these highly qualified and compassionate groups. We encourage the adoption of animals in need of loving homes and applaud the level of quality care of those shelters we have listed on our site. We feel confident that adoption from any of these groups will be a highly fulfilling experience. We also gladly offer a free "New Pet" visit to any new member of your family.
