Despite the rainy day, more than 200 people, some with their furry friends, gathered Saturday at Main Street Vet to celebrate the business’ 10th anniversary in Madison. The community event included complimentary pet treats and accessories, a complimentary lunch from Crowes BBQ, tours of Main Street Vet, a “teddy bear” surgery demonstration, balloon animals for the kids, a jumpy house, and even an Easter Egg Hunt for dogs!
In addition, Main Street Vet hosted a raffle and dessert auction that raised more than $1,000 to benefit to the Humane Society of Morgan County.
Despite the rainy day, adults, kids and pets nearly 200 people showed up to participate in the event! “The celebration was a great success,” said Dr. James Williams. “To see 200 people show up on a rainy day was humbling. Our success is directly attributable to the wonderful relationships we have formed over a decade in this community. We look forward to the next 10 years serving Madison and Morgan County’s fur-babies and their humans!”
Founded by Dr. Williams of Madison, Main Street Vet began its business in Madison in 2009 in a location on South Main Street with three employees. The clinic moved to its larger, state-of-the-art facility at 1311 Eatonton Road in Madison in 2016. Today, in addition to Dr. Williams, the practice has 18 employees including three full-time veterinarians including Dr. Mark Hibbard and Dr. Ashley Settles.
A full service veterinarian operation, Main Street Vet offers traditional services like vaccinations, surgery, behavioral medicine, dental care, weight loss programs, microchipping, pain medicine and alternative care options like chiropractic and acupuncture. The clinic also offers grooming, daycare and boarding. In addition, Main Street Vet is the second practice in the world certified for hospice and quality end-of-life-care from the Companion Animal Euthanasia Training Academy (CAETA).
