How We Help Pets & People In Need
" I came in yesterday and had a young kitten I recently rescued vaccinated and tested for feline leukemia. The staff was all very friendly! They all clearly love their job and they were eager to make sure he was healthy enough to join my small zoo. Lol. H.O.P.E. is a great resource for our is affordable too! . "

5 Ways to Keep Your Pet Safe During the Holidays
Holiday Food
Refrain from feeding your pets from the table. Holiday baking and cooking usually includes a lot of dangerous ingredients for dogs and cats.

Make sure Christmas trees are properly secured so your pets can't knock them down. Ornaments, tinsel and other holiday decorations can be seen as treats or toys to pets, so make sure they are out of reach.

Festive plants and seasonal flowers can be dangerous. Amaryllis, mistletoe and poinsettias are common holiday plants that are toxic for dogs and cats. Refrain from keeping them in your home.

Party Central
It wouldn't be the holidays without fancy parties and guests! Not all pets feel safe with an influx of activity inside their home. Make sure your pet has access to a quiet, safe place, should they want some time alone.

Check Exits
With an increase in house guests, make sure all doors leading outside are
secured and pay extra attention when friends/family are coming in or going
out. Make sure your pet has a microchip and the information is up to date!
Employee Spotlight: Caitlin
Caitlin is one of our Surgery Receptionists at H.O.P.E. for Animals. If you have visited our clinic, you probably have spoken to her. She has a friendly and bubbly personality, she's sure to have you leaving with a smile on your face. She also has a tech background and is always willing to help in any department whenever needed. Caitlin has been a part of our H.O.P.E. team for 3 years!

Caitlin is known for her superior customer service. She's not only great with humans but great with animals as well! She is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to dogs and cats and the services we offer at H.O.P.E. If you've picked your pet up after surgery you've probably stayed for post-op where Caitlin is usually the one presenting the slide show and information for after surgery care. Caitlin is a hard worker and is always willing to help out in other areas of the clinic.

When she is not at H.O.P.E. you can find her at home spending time with her family. She has an adorable 4 year old son, Zathan. She also has two loving pitbulls, Dabble and Dango, as well as a fluffy guinea pig, Hopper. Fun fact: Caitlin is also one of our artistic staff members here at H.O.P.E.
