vetThe fine folks at The Animal Medical Center work hard to find and cure the diseases that threaten our pets and deserve our support.

About The Animal Medical Center: “The Animal Medical Center began in 1906 as the brainchild of Ellin Prince Speyer when she founded the Women’s Auxiliary to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Believing that there were, ‘branches of humane work especially suited for women,’ Ellin and her friends developed their organization as a way to supplement the activities of the male-dominated ASPCA. The first major activity organized by the Women’s Auxiliary was the Work Horse Parade. Held on Memorial Day in 1907, the parade encouraged streetcar drivers, peddlers and other horse owners to treat their animals better. Thousands turned out for the event forecasting a bright future for the organization that would one day become the Animal Medical Center.”
