“10 years ago, we saw a need in this community and have come so far in fulfilling our mission and filling the need. We are extremely grateful for your vote of confidence and support. We will continue to work hard to see to it that healthcare is accessible to all owned pets.” — Dr. Susan Shelton, St. Francis Animal Hospital Founder & Medical Director
St. Francis Animal Hospital is a not-for-profit animal hospital and we believe everyone deserves the unconditional love of a happy and healthy pet and all pets deserve to be in a loving home. Furthermore, St. Francis Animal Hospital believes it is not right to let an animal suffer with less than ideal treatment because their owner can’t afford expensive veterinary care. This is why it is a priority for St. Francis Animal Hospital veterinarians to provide the same high level of care to pets of all families at an affordable price.
St. Francis Animal Hospital doesn’t receive state or federal funding; our only sources of revenue are the fees for our services and donations received from generous individuals and businesses. Thanks to our individual and corporate donors, St. Francis Animal Hospital is helping families keep their pets healthy and out of local animal shelters. We have been providing a needed service in our community and have been honored to server over 7,400 pets in 2013!
St. Francis Animal Hospital provides affordable veterinary care, hospitalization, emergency care, surgeries (including some specialty surgeries), dentistry and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
The staff at St. Francis Animal Hospital are proud of this recognition and we thank you for your continued support that helps us continue to make a difference in our community! Most of all, we thank you for entrusting us to care for your beloved furry family members!
Together, Shadow and Chris’s mom mourned the death of Chris – and helped each other through the heartache.
When Shadow became ill, Chris’s mom was devastated because she couldn’t afford the entire cost of the surgery to save Shadow’s life. As the only remaining connection left to Chris, Chris’s mom couldn’t bear the thought of losing her, too.
Thanks to the generosity of the Helping Paws Fund donors, Shadow was able to get the life-saving surgery she needed and Chris’s mom is eternally grateful to still have Shadow in her life.
