Very friendly and professional staff. I wouldn’t trust my cat’s care with anyone else. I am always very pleased with the attention and care given to my cat at GACC. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They get to know each and every fur baby they see and provide the best care possible while accommodating the personality of the individual pets they see.

Everything was great, Maxx was very well taken care of. The communication between the vet techs and the doctor to the secretary was amazing. Under these trying times that we are all faced with, I had no reservations that Maxx was still going to receive the utmost quality care. Thank you for all you do under these circumstances. Very much appreciated.

The staff and the Vet MD were all gentle and caring towards our dog. They took the time to explain clearly the follow-up care of our dog while maintaining quarantine, observing all the recommended precautions while conducting business. Very satisfied.

Introducing Joel’s Memorial Pet Garden!

We wanted to create something to help people through the grief of losing a pet and to remember the joy. With this in mind, we made a memory garden for our pets. Anyone who has lost a pet is welcome to place a rock, ashes, or any other remembrance that holds a special place in their heart.
