    • Wag On Inn Rescue Group

  • The Sea Girt Animal Hospital has been a long time supporter of the Jersey Shore Animal Center and our mission to rescue and care for unwanted, abused, sick and abandoned animals.  For many years, Dr. Marilyn Weber, Dr. Marisa Sabia, and the staff provided several free spay/neuter procedures per month for our shelter animals in need, including domestic rabbits that had been surrendered to the JSAC. Starting with the front desk staff, you are welcomed in a professional manner and the medical care rendered is second to none. With the retirement of our friend Dr. Weber, the shelter lost a superb colleague and friend; however we were thrilled to find out that the new doctor’s, Dr. Velazquez and Dr. Yurkus, are still supportive of our shelter. Thanks to their caring compassion we will be using Sea Girt Animal Hospital for several procedures per month.

Testimonials

  • My dog Finbar has been a patient at Sea girt Animal Hospital since 2000 and I can’t emphasize enough how caring and compassionate they are. From the front desk staff to the techs to all the doctors. Even the manager Candi has offered a kind word when much needed. I have always been treated both professionally yet with kindness as well. They truly show how much they love animals.
