Caring for Animals and Our Community
Ballston Animal Hospital values and appreciates the surrounding community and actively participates in a variety of ways to assist area shelters and charities.
Members of the community have shown their appreciation for our work as well, and we were proud to be the recipient of the 2009 and 2010 ABBIE award for the “Best Place To Care For Your Pet” in Arlington County, Virginia In addition, Washingtonian Magazine and its readers voted Ballston Animal Hospital one of the “Best Vets” for the Washington, DC, area in its 2008 poll.
We offer a “Free First Visit” to animals adopted through the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, and to Arlington County residents who adopt from the Washington, DC, Animal Humane Society, and the Washington, DC, Animal Shelter, operated by the Washington Humane Society.
Staff members at Ballston also work with the following community organizations: Golden Retriever Rescue, Education, and Training – GRREAT ; the Arlington Food Assistance Center ; and the Paws Program of the Doorways for Women and Families.
Our veterinarians volunteer their time on the clock, as needed, at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. On occasion, an animal requires extensive medical care, surgery, and hospital care. Some case studies we have taken on include:
