Pet Care and Adoption Center

The Stanley James Walker Pet Care and Adoption Center houses up to 60 dogs and 100 cats at a time, and we have an active Foster Care program, as well. Every animal that we adopt to the public is spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and microchipped for permanent identification at our clinic. All cats are tested for FELV/FIV.
