The Belle Mead Animal Hospital encourages both existing and prospective pet owners to consider adopting a rescue pet whenever possible.
Rescue groups are brimming with happy, healthy animals just waiting for someone to take them home. The pets available for adoption have all had their wellness exams and vaccinations. They are typically spayed or neutered, and their temperaments have been well established so a prospective adopter can be matched with the right pet to suit their particular household.
The Belle Mead Animal Hospital is proud to support local rescue groups and assist by offering adoption days at the hospital and showcasing adoptable pets in our waiting room on a regular basis. Adopting and caring for a companion animal can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment for an individual, and the new pet can become a source of unconditional love for those who find their match.
