Foundations for the Future - Veterinary Clinic & Early Learning Center

NEADS is pleased to announce the next phase of the Foundations for the Future initiative – a brand new veterinary clinic and surgical suite. This facility will also provide new quarters for the Laura J. Niles Early Learning Center (ELC). 

WHY A VET CLINIC NOW?

  • Improved on-site care for our dogs: The new clinic means the majority of
    veterinary needs can be met right on campus, ensuring our dogs receive
    prompt, top-quality care in a familiar environment.
  • Enhanced ability to handle emergencies: Emergency situations like
    cesarean sections will be handled on-site. This eliminates the stress of
    transporting a dog in labor and the time pressure of finding an available
    off-site veterinarian.
  • Streamlined care for routine procedures: Procedures like spays and
    neuters, currently outsourced, will be done on campus, improving
    efficiency and reducing stress for our dogs.
  • Significant cost savings: Centralizing veterinary care means less reliance
    on outside providers, making a positive impact on our budget.

A REVITALIZED EARLY LEARNING CENTER

The ELC, essentially our puppy kindergarten, will get a major upgrade. This
new, purpose-built space will provide the perfect environment for early
socialization and exposure to a broad variety of new experiences that help
them grow into calm, competent Service and Assistance Dogs.
