New S.F. Animal Hospital now open

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter announces the opening of the Clare Eddy Thaw Animal Hospital, serving the veterinary needs of the shelter and the public.

The hospital, made possible by a donation from the Eugene Thaw and the Brown foundations, is actually two hospitals in one — the shelter’s busy clinic is contained in one part of the facility, while the front section of the hospital is focused on the public’s needs. Everyone is welcome to use its complete line of veterinary services.

“We are profoundly grateful for those who believed in us and saw how important a new hospital would be for Santa Fe,” said Mary Martin, the shelter’s executive director.

The shelter’s board always envisioned an animal hospital for the campus when the shelter moved to its new facilities on Caja del Rio Road in 2005. 

It was a vision that not only allowed the shelter to provide quality care for all animals who had lost their homes, were broken physically and for whom no other resource was readily available, but also for families who, for whatever reason, needed to be able to access quality veterinary care for their pets but could not.

The hospital is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Patients are seen on an appointment-only basis. Call 983-2755 to make an appointment.
