It’s humbling to think our little community, clients and friends rallied and showed support in a way I just never expected; it’s overwhelming. Being recognized as a veterinarian, in this way, is truly heartwarming and I simply cannot put into words how touched I am by this honor. I would also like to thank my wonderful staff, as without them and our mutual love for animals, none of this would be possible.” Dr. Tim Hunt 2014 winner of America’s Favorite Veterinarian.
