Animal Care Centers are located all across the city of New York. In East Village, Manhattan, Queens and West Village, Brooklyn individuals visit the centers for a variety of reasons. Individuals from all around New York City come for various reasons as varied as adopting new pet family members, reclaiming lost animals and obtaining useful resources to assist them in keeping their pets indoors. An attendee at an animal center has the opportunity to not only receive helpful information, but also interact one on one with experts, volunteers and other residents.
An attendee at an animal care center is first screened for medical, behavioral and physical health concerns. Once that initial screening is completed, an individual will be assigned a veterinarian, typically a board certified veterinary technician or assistant. The attending veterinary technician will work directly with the client and the volunteers at the center to assess the needs of the pet and create a personalized plan for treatment and care. The veterinary assistants at these centers will perform basic and critical procedures on the behalf of the attending veterinarians while also checking the pets for ticks, fleas, lice, broken bones and other conditions that may need immediate veterinary attention.
All of these actions are performed under the supervision of the attending veterinary technician or the veterinary assistant. Once the treatment has begun, the client and his or her pet are walked to their designated area of the animal care center. Typically, the client and their pet will be given a towel, blanket and food bowl at this point. If the pet is unsupervised, the attending vet staff will call out an emergency response. This response will be handled by a team of professionals such as the veterinarian, the EMT workers and the Veterinary technician. Once this emergency has been addressed, the client and his or her pet will be transported to their vehicle.
From this point, the veterinary professionals will evaluate the condition of their pets and discuss what steps they need to take next. The goal of the center is to provide compassionate veterinary care while ensuring that the pets are healthy. Through ongoing education efforts, we want to ensure that all of our staff members have the knowledge and expertise needed to administer appropriate veterinary care to all of our pets. By offering hands-on training to our staff, we are able to offer our community better-rounded pets.
One of the most important goals of any animal shelter or center is the health and well-being of the animals that come through the doors. We want to make certain that each animal is properly looked after and we always have a very thorough routine for examination and vaccinations. We also work closely with local veterinarians and other medical professionals in the area to provide our animals with the best possible care. We also strive to create a close relationship between our staff and the community, so when someone in the community feels neglected or lonely, they can contact us and we will do all that we can to find the care and love that they need.
As someone who has walked our animals and seen their resilience and tenacity for life, I know that every single pet will be given the opportunity to have a new beginning. If you are looking for a way to improve the life of an animal, then you should consider looking into an animal sanctuary or animal care center. These facilities are dedicated to improving the lives of unwanted or unappealing animals while giving them a new lease on life. Whether it is looking for a pet that needs a home, or is just looking for a change of scenery, you will not be disappointed.
