Richmonders love Nan Jack and the other vets at Church Hill Animal Hospital for their sympathetic manner, willingness to answer questions and practical approach to making animal care affordable. They’re also committed to helping stray and rescue animals — just take a stroll by the hospital’s storefront window to see lounging cats available for adoption. Helping Hands in Carytown takes a focused approach to veterinary care, performing only surgeries for ultra-affordable rates. River City Veterinary Hospital, opened in 2014 by husband-and-wife team Heather and Anthony O’Sullivan, is beloved for setting anxious patients at ease.
