Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital is committed to improving the quality of animal life and enhancing the connection between pets and their owners through community service. We have a long history of supporting animal welfare groups, students interested in the veterinary sciences, civic organizations and educating the community about important information regarding their animal companions. The following are organizations with which we are actively involved. For updates on our activities, check out our blog!
We Adopt Greyhounds, Inc. (WAG)
Wag is a local non-profit organization dedicated to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds. Dr. Anna Wolfe has spear headed our involvement with this group thanks to her love of the breed. Dr. Wolfe meets with WAG representatives whenever they bring a group of dogs into the state from Florida or West Virginia to examine them, determine any medical needs and complete the state-required health certificates. Dr. Violette performs all spays, neuters and dental procedures on these dogs. All of the doctors are involved with treating medical issues as they arise while dogs are in foster care pending adoption. Everyone at the hospital takes great pleasure in being a part of and watching the process that gets theses wonderful dogs to their forever homes.
Paw Meadow Dog Park in Simsbury and D.O.G.G.S, the dog Park in Granby's Salmon Brook Park
We have been a sponsor for the construction and maintenance of these parks.
Granby Animal Control Officer
We work closely with the Granby ACO to help manage the feral cat population and injured pets.
Many members of our Salmon Brook Family have been involved with Granby 4-H over the years. Dr. Miller has led a large contingent of aspiring young dairy cow showman every summer by providing cows and calves to care for and then show at the annual 4-H fair. Dr. Miller's expert guidance made this a very successful and popular summertime activity for Granby kids.
