Community Involvement

Community InvolvementSince Princeton Animal Hospital and the Carnegie Cat Clinic were formed, the hospitals have participated in several ongoing community related programs.

The hospitals have been a refuge for the lost and abandoned pets of Plainsboro and West Windsor Townships, as well as the primary facility for handling all medical concerns for any sick or injured pets recovered by Animal Control. The Princeton Animal Hospital and the Carnegie Cat Clinic have found homes for hundreds of these lost souls with new loving families. We also offer staff support for various veterinary clinics offered by the township.

Along with the work with Animal Control, Princeton Animal Hospital has been proud to support the police K9 units of West Windsor and their medical needs. These dogs and their handlers are true heroes of our community. The next time you see your local officer, be sure to thank them for being there for all of us.

Along with providing support for the townships, Princeton Animal Hospital and Carnegie Cat Clinic have supported a variety of rescue groups and shelters over the years, providing services to these wonderful organizations. Starting in 2009, we have held hospital adoption days and we proudly recommend groups such as S.A.V.E. and Pet Rescue of Mercer.

Our hospital's management team approached Mercer County College, a local college, in 2009 regarding the possibility of starting a Veterinary Technician program. A program such as this would be able to provide local residents with the opportunity for training in Veterinary Medicine and an opportunity to enter an ever-expanding job sector. Mercer County College officially began the first leg of this journey in 2010 and Princeton Animal Hospital was named the official on-site externship location. Providing support for such a community program is an exciting venture for our hospital.

We also participate in various fund raisers at our veterinary hospital. We are currently accepting donated pet food for homeless animals. We sincerely thank all of our thoughtful clients who, each year, donate an overwhelming and generous supply of pet food for Easel Animal Rescue League.

The animal hospital is proud to support staff shadowing for community students from elementary ages all the way through high school students, who are interested in the veterinary field of medicine. Students receive school credits through this learning experience and allows our veterinary hospital to foster a love of veterinary medicine for our community students.

We are honored to support Mikey Strong 23 with donations of products and services raffled off at fund raising events organized by Mikey Strong23! Mikey is a local high school hockey player paralyzed in 2014 after a tragic injury on the ice. His journey is awe inspiring and we encourage you to check it out.
