Pet Medical Center of Springfield
Below are some organizations that will be of interest to animal-lovers in Springfield.
4 Paws Rescue Team
The 4 Paws Rescue Team is a dynamic, community-based volunteer organization that takes in neglected, abandoned, abused, and unwanted kittens and cats. Since coming into being in 1995, 4 Paws has rescued over 3,000 felines. In 2001 alone, we found homes for over 700 cats. 4 Paws is a "no-kill" group. This means that once they rescue an animal, he or she will never be euthanized except out of medical necessity. They keep them until they find their perfect homes!
4 Paws also supports trap, neuter, and release (TNR) programs aimed at managing the populations and improving the health of feral cat colonies. They also work with schools to help teach children the importance of responsible pet care.
AAHA is the only organization that accredits animal hospitals throughout the U.S. & Canada. AAHA-accredited hospitals adhere to the highest-quality standards available, which helps ensure the best care for your pet. Learn more about AAHA accreditation, and find an AAHA-accredited hospital.
