Sav A Lab thanks Galax clinic

Save A Lab thanks the Galax Veterinary Clinic for support of our efforts to rescue Labradors and Labrador‑mix dogs in Carroll and Grayson counties.
The clinic and staff have gone above and beyond in providing care to these dogs. Galax Vet Clinic takes our dogs, boards them, spays or neuters the dogs, treats for parasites, fleas, ticks, and microchips them. Yes, we pay for these services. But the clinic goes way beyond routine vet care for these homeless and very often emotionally-needy dogs. Vets have stayed late to make sure a new arrival has proper diagnosis. Techs walk the dogs to begin their training and provide emotional comfort. Groomers bathe the dogs with tenderness. Everyone who comes in contact with the Save A Lab dogs treats them with respect and kindness. Assistants and techs walk the dogs for our volunteers to take photographs and videos, which help tremendously in finding foster and permanent homes quickly for the dogs.

Without Galax Veterinary Clinic and its compassionate treatment of these terrified animals, more dogs would be left waiting at the shelter. Making rescue happen in your area requires local help and affordable, compassionate vetting. We have found that in Galax Veterinary Clinic.
