LVH Cares

The team at Lombard Veterinary Hospital is committed to enriching our community. We care about pets, but we also care about you! We are involved in a number of community programs that we’d love to tell you about. Some of that information is below:

Pet Adoption Program

Our staff has helped find homes for hundreds of cats. We have some wonderful success stories! If you’d like to see who is currently available for adoption, please visit our Adoptable Pets page.

Lilac Festival Mutt Strut

Each year, Lombard Veterinary Hospital sponsors the Lilac Festival Mutt Strut, a unique event that allows for some great pet-owner bonding! This 5K Walk/Run features a Puppy Path, and dogs are welcome to participate in both events. The date for the 2017 Mutt Strut is May 13.

Annual Pet Blessing

Every September Lombard Veterinary Hospital hosts a pet blessing and service of remembrance to celebrate the lives of our beloved animal companions. We hope you'll mark your calendar and plan to join us at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 30, 2017 for our 8th annual event.

The Pet Blessing began in 2010 when one of our LVH clients, Rev. Emily Mellott of Calvary Episcopal Church, received a sympathy card from our team at the passing of her 14-year-old cat. Going through the experience gave her a deeper appreciation for the difficulty people have in grieving the death of their beloved animal companions and, as a pastor, she wanted to find a way to help other pet lovers deal with this loss. Rev. Emily discussed her thoughts with Dr. Georgianne Ludwig and they decided to work together on a pet blessing service. Before long, the pet blessing became an annual, ecumenical effort sponsored by First Church of Lombard, UCC and First Methodist Church of Lombard, and Calvary Episcopal Church, as well as Lombard Veterinary Hospital. This event welcomes people of all faiths, as well as people with no religious affiliations. It is truly designed to celebrate the human-animal bond that we see between our clients and their pets on a daily basis. What an uplifting event for loving pet owners!
