Fire Department Donation Campaign

UVS began its campaign to provide fire rescue kits for animals with donations to the Loudonville and Saratoga Springs Fire Departments in 2015.  Now that the new building construction and relocation to its new 24/7 hospital at 152 Sparrowbush Road in Latham is complete, UVS is again able to provide more community outreach.
