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.

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.

Schulhof Animal Hospital has long participated in finding caring homes for pets that need them. To this end, we work with Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA) for whom we also collect donations and give discounts. If you are interested in adopting a dog, please contact WASA at (203) 557-0361 or go to their website.

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 serve as an internship site for the Norwalk Community College Veterinary Assistant and Veterinary Technologist Programs since their 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.
