Animal Ark of Elkin could not be any more understanding, caring, or loving, and they did what’s best for our beautiful Colby Kitty. Very good rates. They do this because they care about animals and are blessed for what they do.”

– Laurie C.

Very friendly staff members who take great care of our fur baby. Our pup loves going to “doggy daycare” while we are out of town. She always comes home happy, groomed and well taken care of.”

I have been taking my animals to the Animal Ark of Elkin for several years. The staff is excellent. The facility has always looked so nice and smelled clean. The vet is just wonderful. He explains everything that is easy to understand. Best place in the surrounding area without a doubt.”

Got both my cats spayed there. It was our first time visiting. Very friendly receptionist, and they even called to check up on them the next day. I will definitely be using them again. I’m a happy pet mama.”

I have four fur babies, and they take awesome care of each of them. Dr. Brinegar takes every measure needed to care for them. I highly recommend him to anyone.”

– Kimberly S.

Dr. Brinegar is excellent! He and his staff are very courteous and professional. He always takes the time to explain and educate. We drive from Lewisville to Elkin just so that he can care for our dog.”

– Renee H.

I was driving from Pittsburgh, PA to Bradenton, FL and made an overnight stop in Elkin. It was 3 am and my 5-month-old Boston terrier threw up what looked like stuffing from his toy. He must have been pretty busy in his crate ripping up his toy during this six-hour drive. The pup had vomited six times in five hours, and I was very concerned. His demeanor was fine, still happy and playful, but I wanted him to get seen because of the drive still ahead of us. I called Animal Ark of Elkin, and they saw me within a couple of hours. Dr. Rich and the rest of the staff were extremely nice and helpful in my time of worry and a little panic. They calmed me down and assured me my pup was going to be fine. They gave the pup some meds, and he was back to his normal self. They called me a couple of days later to check on the pup and make sure he was doing fine. Definitely recommend!”

– Ella C.

Animal Ark of Elkin is easily the best veterinary clinic I have ever visited. I have lots of cherished pets, and I would bring them nowhere else. The staff is welcoming, knowledgeable, and my animals absolutely adore them all– even my cat who was rescued from an abusive home. You know you are in a good place when a normally timid kitty naps belly up while waiting for the vet!”

– Kelsey B.

Very friendly staff, excellent customer service, very caring staff. They take vouchers to spay/neuter your animals.”

– Leezyll H.

The vet here makes an extra effort to take care of my dog. He’s been my vet for four years since another office was too busy to see my boy. I keep going back because I am continually impressed.”

– Jason S.

I went here for the first time when I was unable to visit my normal veterinarian. Everyone was very nice and accommodating.”

– Jessica W.

Not only will you receive top veterinarian care for your pet, but you will also be treated like family as soon as you walk in the door. Great place, great vet, perfect place to bring your pet.”

I have taken my dogs to three veterinarians in the area. Animal Ark of Elkin is head and shoulders above the rest. No, I’m not a paid reviewer.”

– Duke D.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Animal Ark of Elkin. I have quite a few loved fur babies, exotic and non, and I have never had anything but a positive experience at Animal Ark. The staff is so kind and helpful, and Dr. Brinegar is easily among the most knowledgeable and compassionate veterinarians I have ever met. I would take my pets nowhere else.”

Animal Ark of Elkin is the best vet hospital all around! Dr. Brinegar is a great vet, and the staff is wonderful!! I would highly recommend this vet over any other!!”

– Jessica L.

Dr. Brinegar and his staff saw my new puppy and took great care of her! Animal Ark of Elkin is a wonderful place to come to for good service and nice, patient staff members!”

– Emily S.

Dr. Brinegar helped treat my 13-year old dog when we thought he had abscessed teeth. He ended up having cancer in his face, and Dr. Brinegar helped us work through the decision to not put him through any more surgeries, but let him live out his final days in peace. When we started noticing he was in pain, Dr. Brinegar helped us put him down gently, and they wrapped him so respectfully for us to take home and bury. The whole office is full of kind people who truly love animals; it’s evident in their care.”

– Callie S.

Today was our first visit to Animal Ark of Elkin. Dr. Brinegar and his staff were great with my little Zoe. I will definitely be taking her back there.”

– Rhonda O.

Dr. Brinegar and his staff are wonderful. I brought my dog for spaying, and they did a wonderful job making her feel at home so she wouldn’t be so scared.”

– Charlene M.

We love the Animal Ark of Elkin. We’ve taken all our animals here over the years. This will be the first time we use their boarding services. Great staff, clean facility & very knowledgeable. Thanks for all your care over the years with our animals.”

– Elijah V.

I have never known such a caring group of people. It is always hard to lose a member of your family, and fur babies are no exception. When my Cassie passed away, I never expected to receive a card in the mail with his paw print and a lock of his fur. They are truly a special group of people, and Dr. B. is one good Christian man who loves his animals. God bless them all.”

– Angela M.

Absolutely wonderful! Dr. Brinegar treated my ferret on the day before Christmas one year (when he became very ill suddenly), and I immediately transferred all of my animals over to Animal Ark of Elkin because I was so impressed! He and his staff are wonderful with ALL of my animals and always take the time to answer questions and explain everything. I drive an hour to get to this office, and I would never dream of changing! Excellent–just excellent.”

– Kelsey B.

This is a beautiful facility with friendly staff and an AMAZING vet, Dr. Brinegar! I have taken my birds there for years, and I am always so impressed with how great he is at diagnosing any problems and how wonderful he is with all my animals. He saved my cockatiel’s life! I visited there today because my dog hurt his leg, and Dr. Brinegar took the time to talk to me and explain the injury. I will never go to another vet!”

– Laura R.

I wouldn’t take my Sassy anywhere else! The staff is always so helpful, and Dr. Brinegar will do what it takes to make your pet well again if they are sick. It’s a comfort to me when I board my Sassy that I know she will be well taken care of. That means so much to me! Sassy loves Dr. Brinegar!!”

– Kristy G.

Dr. B. is so nice to my husky, Meeko! The whole staff is great! They are kind! The Animal Ark of Elkin staff makes you and your pet feel cared for! I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my fur-baby!”

– Lakan B.

If you take your animals anywhere else, you’re messing up. I can’t even begin to say enough wonderful things about this place. Just do it.”

– Beth R.

They always take care of my fur babies, They have the best staff and doctor ever. The best part is they try to find homes for pets that have been misplaced or need rehoming due to the owner’s illnesses or situation.”

– Denise D.

I recently lost my 19-year-old standard poodle. The staff and Dr. Brinegar showed the utmost respect for my beloved Lyza. Their compassion was wonderful. Lyza went peacefully. Even one of the staff members shed tears. I chose to use their cremation services. Today I received a beautiful card with condolences, lockets of her hair, and her paw print. Lyza was treated like the family member she was. I want to say a big THANK YOU for your services and obvious love of pets and their family they left behind. God bless you!!”

– Cindy M.

Hands down the best veterinarian around Elkin! Thanks to Dr. B. and his excellent staff for the care they always give!”

– Leslie B.

I just wanted to give a shout-out to the folks at Animal Ark of Elkin. Our fur baby was sick on a snow day, and even though the roads were messy, Dr. Brinegar and his staff graciously offered to see her. We are so thankful they made room for us! Thanks again, Animal Ark staff–you guys were a blessing to our family today!”

– Chadwick W.

Excellent service when needed, and my baby loves to be there. She always gets great care and attention (which she loves). Thank you all for such good care for our fur babies.”

A big shout-out to Dr. B. and staff! I just would like to thank you all for taking such good care of my little rescue “Nancy” while you spayed her. She is doing wonderful, and her little incision looks great! Thanks again for being so kind and caring.”

– Jill J.

They took such good care of my dog, Bella. They answered all my questions and even called and checked on her the day after her surgery.”

– Amber B.

Thank you, Jamie Burks, for making our baby, Piper, beautiful! Everyone we met at the front desk was very friendly, caring, and helpful. I think Piper had a great experience!! So you in 3 weeks.”
