Community Involvement

the oldest and premier animal hospital in Westport, CT

As the oldest and premier animal hospital in Westport, Connecticut, Schulhof Animal Hospital believes that it is impossible for a caring and thriving veterinary practice to be divorced from the community it serves. Without our many friends and neighbors, we simply would not be what we are today.

For these reasons, we enjoy being a good neighbor and take every opportunity to do our part to sustain and strengthen our home of Westport. This includes providing free initial physical examinations for pets that have been adopted from the Connecticut Humane Society or any other animal rescue organization.

We participate in the Connecticut Animal Population Control Program which provides Connecticut residents, who adopt a pet from a state or municipal shelter, a voucher good toward a discounted spay or neuter and two free vaccines at the participating animal hospital of their choice. We also collect donations and give discounts to Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA) and the Town of Westport Animal Control facility.

We participate in the Staples High School volunteer internship program which provides high school students with the opportunity to sample a potential career. Many of these students go on to have a paid position with us on weekends, holidays, and summers. We also have served as an internship site for the Norwalk Community College Veterinary Assistant Program since its incipiency. The veterinarians and staff at Schulhof Animal Hospital have participated in the town Rabies clinic for years and have been voted "The Best Place to Get Your Pet Fixed" by the Westport Chamber of Commerce.

Finally, Schulhof Animal Hospital annually supports a variety of companion animal causes, as well as institutional scientific research. Recently we sent donations to the Animal Medical Center in New York City, where Dr. Allyson Berent is performing stem cell research for the cure of glomerulonephritis.
