Our Amazing Testimonials:

Had my first appointment with Animal Care Center of Shorewood earlier this week and could not be happier that I made the switch over to them. The front desk staff was very friendly both to me and my dog Annie. The facility is so fresh and kept so clean which I really appreciated. We met with Dr K and she was fantastic. She took the time to get to know Annie and learn about her health history. Provided a complete checkup and recommendations that I felt very pleased me. My only regret is that I did not switch over to them sooner!

My husband and I are extremely happy with the care our new pup is receiving from Animal Care Center of Shorewood. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and always willing to help whether it’s a question we have over the phone or when our pup comes in for her shots. Very happy with the quality of care we are receiving and the facility is clean and extremely well kept.

This is a fantastic facility. Very clean with a great staff. The doctors are wonderful and take the time to talk with you and get to know you and your pets. Even when you have to make the tough end of life decisions everyone there is extremely caring and shows great compassion. They even do some special things to help you remember your fur babies. I love taking my animals to them. I also love that they offer adoptions too. They offer different plans to help pay for services and have a multiple pet discount which is great!
