Willamette Valley Animal Hospitals believe their customers should feel welcome, informed and comforted that their pet is under the best care; treating customers the way that we would like to be treated. We employ people that are willing to go above and beyond. Caring about the pets and their humans, knowing what it’s like to be a pet parent ourselves, are what make our staff knowledgeable and compassionate.
Giving back to the communities that support Willamette Valley Animal Hospitals is important to us. As part of a whole, each Willamette Valley Animal Hospital gives back to their own neighborhood. Currently our Keizer location is donating fifty cents of every exam to future veterinarians through scholarships for Oregon State University students and our Salem location donates to scholarships for high school students at Sprague and South Salem High Schools. Both locations collect for an emergency fund that allows us to help pets in dire need by giving free or discounted services and medications: The Happy Ending Fund.
We work with local rescues by hosting events that provide healthcare services and fundraising efforts. Wonderful members of the WVAH team donate their time and expertise and Students from OSU Veterinary Program are often invited for hands on experience with our veterinarians during these events.
The hospitals’ Happy Ending Fund is built on donations from our valued clients and a portion of our profits so that we can help those pets whose lives are at stake. Money should not have to be the deciding factor for responsible pet owners on a budget. In 2013, Willamette Valley Animal Hospitals donated over eleven thousand dollars in goods and services to more than fifty families in the Salem-Keizer area.
We stay in the loop with the next generation of veterinarians and technicians. Teaming up with Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Willamette Valley Animal Hospitals offer vet students hands-on experience through vaccine events and externships, ensuring that next generation of veterinary medicine has every opportunity available to learn.
This Earth is the only one we have. Willamette Valley Animal Hospitals actively recycle office products, such as paper, plastics, and cardboard; using biodegradable materials when able. Our Keizer Hospital boasts a huge display of solar panels to minimize the use of electricity and all locations are now going paperless in order to reduce the burden on Earth’s resources.
