At Urban Animal we know that every companion animal has his or her own unique characteristics that define who they are. We celebrate these qualities, and that’s why our approach is specific to a pet’s individual needs.
Urban Animal takes into consideration things like personality, sex, lifestyle, breed and life stage. Our state-of the-art facility enables us to work with animals that have a range of needs, from a pet that’s healthy to one that’s sick or in need of emergency care to becoming a senior or experiencing something else.Your pet isn’t just a pet; he or she is your urban companion. We wouldn’t have it any other way. That’s why Urban Animal was created – to celebrate the uniqueness and dignity of every individual animal.

Urban Client Care Team
Every day is a happy day when Ty's around and clients and co-workers alike flock to his side to catch his sass, hear him sing or drink in the amazing energy emanating from this very special person. If Ty's essence could be bottled up and turned into a drug, it's street value would be unprecedented. Ty has a background in reception, customer service, retail and musical theater and handles all matters with efficiency and grace. Outside of work Ty's private life is private as he reminds us every day. As a result speculation brewing. We are currently trying to verify that Ty comes to work each day as a magenta shimmer of light.
