Read What Our Clients Say

  • ""We don't have enough good things to say about this group. They're so accommodating and look out for your pet and you, not their bottom line which ends up helping their bottom line. They have a repeat customer for life. Even people without pets should go here!""
    - Shawn A
  • ""I absolutely LOVE these folks. Dr. G is an amazing doctor who shows so much love and compassion for all of his patients. I recently moved from Tualatin and my heart broke when my two dogs and two cats could no longer have these wonderful folks look after them. Thank you for always taking such good care of my zoo.""
