When you do what you love and focus on others, the business of veterinary medicine will take care of itself (usually). That’s why we at Pet’s Friend were delighted and honored to be named the State of California Senate 13th District Small Business of the Year 2016 by Senator Jerry Hill. On May 20th, our day - typically filled with puppy breath, soft kittens, rambunctious canines, aloof felines, lots of fur, and more than a little pee and poop – was enriched by a visit from the Senator to present Dr. Julie Miller and the Pet’s Friend team with this prestigious award. We asked how we were selected from the thousands of small businesses in California, and here is what we were told by Senator Hill:
Every year, we select one small business in the district that has contributed towards community service. We do our best to make sure that the small businesses we select are representative of the district. We then do our own research into businesses that participate in nonprofits, civic organizations, leadership trainings, good causes, job fairs, etc. We also solicit suggestions from the Chambers of Commerce.
Here at Pet’s Friend Animal Clinic, we aren’t thinking about how to win awards. We know that if we take care of our clients and their pets, our efforts will make a difference. Yes, we do support and contribute to the Morris Animal Foundation, NorCal Poodle Rescue, and give free first exams to newly-adopted shelter pets so they start out on the right path. We also donate to several schools and sponsor local sports teams including West Valley Elementary School, Homestead High School, Fremont High School, and Santa Clara High School. Our goal is to help make our community and the families that care for pets better due to our efforts.
“Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us… It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.” - John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog
Our lives are better for the pets and owners that we can serve. Guess that’s just good business!

I moved to the Bay Area with my cat, Buddy, in the Summer of 2015. After going to the same veterinarian for nearly my entire life, I was very anxious about finding a new vet which I could trust to take care of my cat. The vet staff at Pet's Friend Animal Clinic are wonderful! I have now taken Buddy here twice, both times to see Dr. Allison Moore. You can tell that she, and the rest of the staff, truly care about you and your animal. I'm very relieved to have found this exceptional clinic, and I plan to continue taking my cat here for the foreseeable future!
We have been taking our doggie girls to Pet's Friends since they opened. Although there have been many changes over the years, the loving care they have given our dogs, myself, and wife has always been consistent. That's because you can tell they love animals and want to help them live a long, happy, and healthy life. The Doctors are special - they take time to explain medical process, explain options to us, and really listen to our concerns. The Pet's Friends' staff treats us like family. The staff provides more than just administrative and technical support to the Doctors - they provide a professional atmosphere of confidence while making everyone feel at home. I would not hesitate recommending them to my friends.
