We’re Making a Difference!

 

Education

students

Our veterinary clinic strives everyday to educate our clients, our community, and the future generation about the importance of veterinary medicine and proper care of animals.  Our facility is located within the Locust Trace Agriscience Farm, a technical high school in Fayette County focusing on Agricultural Studies.  Our student interns come in everyday to observe and assist the Veterinarian and Technicians while they care for patients and perform surgeries with the latest technology. We are helping them to achieve their dreams of becoming future certified veterinary assistants, licensed veterinary technicians, or even Veterinarians!

Environment

locust trace

Our facility is designed to be net-zero in energy through the use of photovoltaic solar panels and net-zero in waste disposal through the utilization of constructed wetlands. The Locust Trace Agriscience Farm is also minimally hooked up to water municipalities. All rain water is collected from the  building and the equine barn/arena to be utilized for all crop irrigation and livestock watering. An on-site well has been accessed to back up the rain water collection system in case of a drought. We believe in sustainability and do all we can to help the world we live in. We are also a paperless facility and implement a recycling program.

Community Service

We have teamed up with Kentucky Lab Rescue and Blackburn Correctional Facility to help spay/neuter homeless pets in Lexington and find them forever homes. With the help of the Fayette County Public School Community and our fans, we raised money for Wolf Run Wildlife Refuge and New Spirit 4 Aussie Rescue, INC. We are currently working on a partnership with Scott County Humane Society on a Trap-Neuter-Release program for feral cat colonies in Georgetown. You can also find us doing the occasional Rabies Vaccination Clinic at various locations to promote annual vaccinations for dogs and cats.
