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!
