“Wonderful people at Animal Ark. Took time to see my dog that was hurt even though they were so busy. I really appreciate everyone there. Very glad I changed vets last year.”

“You can tell that Dr. and Mrs. Brinegar care about what they do from taking care of animals from birth to caring for them at the end of life. They have a beautiful pet funeral home with a peaceful chapel. It is not just a vet for pets, it is an experience that shows care for the family.”


“I had an emergency with my pitbull named Pork Chop. He is not a friendly dog. They came to my truck, got to know him, and found out everything that was needed to save my Pork Chop. I will be returning with both of my dogs.”
