The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recently gave an accreditation to Springfield’s Hope Veterinary Care after an evaluation of its protocols and client service, according to a Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce press release.
The facility received an AAHA accreditation after a review of its practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service, according to the press release.
Animal hospitals do not require an accreditation to operate. The AAHA accreditation means the organization has determined the office demonstrates the highest level of veterinary care, according to the release.

Dr. Heidi Britt-Sherrock founded the animal hospital in April, according to the press release.
“She is committed to creating a better life for pets and their people by approaching each situation with honest compassion and personalized Fear-Free care offered with integrity and delivered in humility,” the release said.
In order to maintain its AAHA accreditation, Hope Veterinary Care needs to be evaluated on a regular basis, according to the release.
