What do you think when you hear the words Saint Francis? Do you think something to do with religion or spirituality? If you live in Jacksonville, FL you might think of a well-known and amazing animal hospital. Saint Francis Animal Hospital is a not-for-profit animal hospital that “provides affordable veterinary care to all owned pets in the surrounding Jacksonville area. Locally founded and inspired, we are a non-profit organization that treats all of our patients with quality, tender healthcare.” Located in the heart of San Marco, this hospital offers state of the art medical treatment for our companion animals.
Why Choose Saint Francis Animal Hospital?
The hospital was founded by Dr. Suzy Shelton in 2003 to offer affordable pet health care to those who desired to own a pet but thought “they couldn't afford it.” Pets offer unconditional love and companionship, and everyone who desires to own a pet should have the option. In a community where the mission is to become “no-kill” it’s imperative to have low coast services offered to allow people the option of keeping and owning a pet for life.
Saint Francis Animal Hospital helps the families of dogs like Loki. Loki is a 6 year old rescued Siberian Husky mix, and he is diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. Although Saint Francis is not treating Loki directly for his ailment; they are helping to raise funds to assist in the cost of his treatment. Please read the story of Loki on his Facebook page. Saint Francis has charitable funds that help patients and community pet owners with financial assistance to pay for unexpected medical costs.
