It all began with the purchase of Cedar Village Animal Clinic on March 8, 2000, which later became The Village Vets of Lilburn-Stone Mountain.  Drs.

The Village Vets is the result of their dreams come true.

Founded in 1996, the Advanced Animal Care Center (Huntington Station, New York 11746) provides pets with high-quality veterinary health care and medical services. Dr. Michel Selmer offers traditional, holistic, intergrative medical, surgical, and wellness care that is unsurpassed by any other veterinary facility. The state-of-the-art animal hospital allows its staff to handle most medical and surgical cases efficiently and effectively.

If any patient needs 24-hour extended or intensive care, or a specialized procedure such as laparoscopic and orthopedic surgeries, digital radiography, endoscopy, colonoscopy, stem cell therapy, and emergency care (just a few of the advanced, cutting-edge services available), the Advanced Animal Care Center is able to provide these services without delay. In addition to its in-house specialties, the Advanced Animal Care Center provides immediate consultations with veterinary specialists should a patient require additional care. Although they believe that preventative medicine is the best way to keep pets happy and healthy, they are also able to provide their patients with a broad range of routine veterinary care services.

Dr. Michel Selmer and his considerate staff take the time to get to know your pet individually and develop a lasting relationship that continues well beyond his or her senior years. Working alongside Dr. Selmer, the hospital staff consists of highly qualified individuals who consistently strive to provide quality veterinary care in a compassionate setting. Their goal is to care for your pets consistently, reliably, and in a loving and stress-free environment, providing you and your family the luxury of “peace of mind.” They are continually striving to maintain lasting relationships with their clients, treating each patient as a member of their ever-growing family.

Dr. Selmer focuses on Holistic or Integrative Veterinary Medicine, on the examination and diagnosis of an animal, considering all aspects of the animal’s life and employing all of his senses, as well as the combination of conventional and alternative (or complementary) modalities of treatment. When Dr. Selmer sees a pet, besides giving it a comprehensive physical examination, he wants to find out all about its behaviors, distant medical and dietary history and its environment including diet, emotional stresses, and other factors.

Westchester Mobile Veterinary Service (Briarcliff Manor, New York 10510) brings comfort, convenience, and quality veterinary care to you and your pet in the familiar and tranquil environment of home.

Dr. Sonja M. Ghersini graduated from the University of London, Royal Veterinary College in London, England in 2001. During her time abroad, she enjoyed preceptorships with both the London and Bronx Zoos, where she survived monitoring anesthesia on a young lion having his teeth cleaned among her other adventures with dangerous, exotic, domestic, farm, and other wonderful animals. Another highlight in her early vet years was helping to rehabilitate, rear, and release orphaned seal pups with England’s version of the ASPCA.

Dr. Sonja returned home to Westchester County to practice small animal medicine. She found she was best suited as a small animal vet and enjoys the relationships between animal lovers and their furry members of the family.

WMVS provides a wide range of services such as annual wellness, puppy/kitten and adult and senior pet exams and preventative healthcare. Dr. Sonja also has the capability to perform many various diagnostic and screening tests…most of which can be done at home.

Who do you call? That is the question that launched HALO (St. Petersburg, Florida 33731). On New Year’s Eve 2007, HALO founder Stacey Thomas & her partner, Sue, were driving to a friend’s home. Up ahead, a pickup truck struck a German Shepherd, sending the dog airborne. The truck never stopped. The dog landed on the side of the road. Stacey and Sue immediately stopped to help. The dog needed emergency veterinary care, but even if it had not been a holiday evening, who do you call? At that moment, HALO was born on the side of a road in St. Petersburg, Florida. Animal welfare organizations are frequently overloaded, or not available “after hours.” Stacey decided that no animal should ever be left uncared for, and has devoted all her efforts since that day to establishing HALO, the Planet’s Animal Ambulance.

HALO’s mission is to develop a sustainable network of providers and resources ready to respond to animal emergencies at all times. HALO will work to foster collaborative relationships among existing agencies with the goal of improving access to emergency services. Through this network, HALO will strive to promote public awareness of available training, transport, and resources and to support opportunities to strengthen animal emergency response services in Pinellas County.

The mission of the Animal Rescue Coalition (Sarasota, Florida 34236) is to end the killing of adoptable cats and dogs in Sarasota County, and to promote and support programs involving mutually beneficial relations between people and companion animals.

In an effort to reduce the number of feral cats in Sarasota County, the Animal Rescue Coalition hosts a Feral Cat Clinic Day one Sunday each month. ARC provides free spaying and neutering to all feral cats brought in by Sarasota County residents. Local veterinarians and veterinary technicians, ARC staff, and volunteers all donate their time and talent to this very effective trap-neauter-return program.The ARC Mobile Clinic is a state-of-the-art surgical facility.

Almost every community has feral cats: unsocialized cats who may be one or more generations removed from a home environment and who may subsist in a colony of similar cats living on the fringes of human communities. Feral cats live wherever they can scavenge for food, near dumpsters, behind businesses, in city parks, and perhaps even in your own backyard.

Despite outward appearances, generations of domestication have left these felines without many of the natural adaptations necessary for life outside. They do not “regain their instincts” and they do not thrive.

Feral cats often band together in colonies and continue breeding. Over time, they become more wary of people and teach their kittens to avoid humans. Starvation, disease, trauma and stresses of continual reproduction plague their lives.

Cats average two litters per year and kittens as young as five months can reproduce. The reproduction rate is staggering: An unaltered female and all of her offspring can produce 420,000 kittens in seven years. If a feral cat in Sarasota County produced only one tenth of its potential, by the year 2010 there would be an additional 42,000 cats living in our county.

Project CatSnip (Atlanta, Georgia 31145) exists to provide non-lethal population control and assistance for cats. This is accomplished by: performing high-quality sterilization surgeries for cats to prevent homeless cats from being born; educating the public about cat overpopulation, sterilization programs and responsible cat care; providing exemplary services that are low-cost for families that are experiencing financial hardship; working with Metro Atlanta veterinarians to help provide medical care and attention for indigent companion animals; and operating an excellent, state-of-the-art clinic facility that employs caring, friendly and professional staff.

While the majority of cats in Atlanta are afforded excellent health care, tens of thousands are destroyed annually. Many, many more live short, difficult lives outdoors. Sterilization is a non-lethal method of reducing cat overpopulation and the most humane way to prevent the birth of unwanted, homeless cats. On average, about 8 out of every 10 cats that enter Metro Atlanta shelters are euthanized. A large portion of those felines are kittens.

Project CatSnip is Atlanta’s first and only mobile feline surgical unit specializing in spay/neuter. Its purpose is to end feline overpopulation in Atlanta by making crucial spay/neuter and identification services affordable and accessible for those who are on restricted incomes or who are caring for doorstep, stray, and feral cats.

A mobile practice goes where the problems are and makes spaying/neutering accessible to more cat owners, especially those dealing with outdoor cats. Affordability, accessibility, and reluctance to spay/neuter at an early age are among the chief reasons why cats are allowed to produce unwanted litters.
