We are so thrilled to announce that our very own Angel Martin is the 2019 American Humane Hero Veterinary Nurse winner!
Behind every hero pet is a Hero Veterinarian or Hero Veterinary Nurse.
The annual American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards™, sponsored by Zoetis, honor the heroes who dedicate their lives to making a difference in animals’ lives through delivery of outstanding veterinary care.
On September 6th, a small crew came to our Russell Ridge location to film Angel for her win at the American Humane Hero Vet Nurse Awards. We wanted to show everyone what that experience was like for us at the clinic so we put together a short clip for you to enjoy!
To hear more about Angel's win and her trip to Beverly Hills, CA check out our weekly podcast People, Pets & Vets.
About the American Humane Hero Vet Nurse Awards:
"For millions of Americans, animals are not just their best friends, but their heroes. Behind almost every hero pet (and millions more animals) is a hero veterinarian or hero veterinary nurse.
