On Saturday July 18th, 2009 Paws, Purrs and Exotics Animal Hospital will be holding its Grand Opening. The event will benefit the Washington Humane Society, which will have adoptable animals at the event.
Local dog friendly vendors including Hotel Monaco, Baskin Robbins, Karing by Kristina and Barkley Square Bakery have partnered with the Animal Hospital for a day full of fun, education, and free giveaways!
“We are bringing those whose businesses serve animals in our community together to celebrate our opening and to raise funds for the Washington Humane Society”, said owner Dr. Elton Vyfhuis. I have supported the WHS for years by volunteering performing surgeries for them at their National Capital Area Spay & Neuter Center, and am excited that the first event at our new hospital will support the great work that the Washington Humane Society does in our community.”
Paws, Purrs and Exotics Animal Hospital is the first African American owned Animal Hospital in the Alexandria area and is one of very few in the DC metro area that specializes in Exotics.
“We want to establish a long-term relationship with our clients, their families and their pets. We will host an open house to showcase our new clinic and look forward to serving the Alexandria community, as well as surrounding area. ” Dr. Nia Perkins said. Paws, Purrs & Exotics Animal Hospital will offer high-quality, affordable veterinary care for dogs, cats, small mammals and exotics. Their services include general medicine, surgery, digital radiography, grooming, day boarding and daycare services, and professional training. For details, call the hospital at 703-549-PAWS (7297)
