AAHA recognizes 2017 accredited practice of the year

Published on May 10, 2017

The American Animal Hospital Association has recognized Loving Family Animal Hospital of Aurora, Colorado, as the 2017 AAHA-Accredited Practice of the Year.

Dedication to community is one reason that AAHA chose Loving Family Animal Hospital as practice of the year. Dr. Monique Weldon wants everyone who comes into her small, family-oriented animal hospital and grooming salon to feel like part of a loving family. She appreciates AAHA’s focus not only on medicine but also on community service, communication, and grief counseling. These aspects make Loving Family a well-rounded hospital and help the hospital carry out its family-focused mission.

Loving Family offers an annual pet health check for the community, providing free examinations and vaccinations for pets of underprivileged owners. The hospital does food drives and medicine drives. The hospital also is committed to animal rescue, providing veterinary care for 10 rescue organizations at a 50 percent discount.

Animal Medical Center of the Village of Houston was the other finalist for practice of the year.
