The holidays are a great time to remember those who give to us throughout the year. Some of those unsung heroes are our police and sheriff’s K-9 dogs. A special tree in the UF Small Animal Hospital’s primary care and dentistry area features ornaments with photos of special area K-9s.

The K-9s pictured on the ornaments are all patients of the primary care and dentistry service. 

Donations are being collected at both of the Small Animal Hospital front desk areas to support the cost of providing these heroes with their bulletproof vests, specialty collars, leashes –and treats, too.

Each donor receives a festive bone ornament so that they may sign their name and help decorate the tree.

Please call or speak to one of the receptionists at either Small Animal
