This Arroyo program aids animals in critical need of medical attention who have no caretakers or who have caretakers with limited funds for veterinary services such as surgery, hospitalization, and medication. Proceeds from many of our classes and events go to support the Good Sam fund. You'll also find donation cups in our reception area.
Paws for Youth
Paws for Youth is offered to classrooms and students interested in a career in the animal healthcare field or just to increase awareness of the veterinary profession. The program includes classroom presentations, personal interviews, career day talks and job shadowing. The staff will bring live cats and dogs to further enhance the student's experience as well as x-rays and models. Job shadowing includes a two hour visit to the hospital to observe a working day behind the scenes in the treatment and surgery areas.
