10% discount for military personal


As of today we are implementing a Thank You discount of 10% to all active and veteran military personal. We, at Waggin Tails and Fitchburg Veterinarian Hospital, have always been aware and appreciative of our service men and women. We have recently added two new employees to our staff that have served in military. Jesse, an E4 Specialist veteran that served 6 years in the Army 428th Engineer Company. He describes his main duty in Afghanistan as bomb detection. Since Jesse‚Äôs arrival at Waggin Tails, he has been a welcomed addition. He has already earned employee of the month, and says he loves coming to work to be with all the dogs in daycare. He finds it to be so relaxing. He is also learning to reception for us at the front desk and soon you all will have an opportunity to meet him. The other new service man to come to Waggin Tails is Pablo, another welcome addition. He has been learning to reception at our front desk as well, and hopefully by now most of you have met him. He is a big guy and hard to miss, but he’s incredibly friendly and loves pets. His service time was 7 years with most of that time spent in Afghanistan. He was a recon Sniper in the Army 5th Brigade 21st Infantry as a Sargent. Not only do we want to offer this discount based on appreciation of these two men, we would highly recommend businesses to hire returning veterans as well. Thank you again to all service personal…..past and present.


Our fundraiser!

Last Paw Rescue

For those of you that follow us on Facebook or have been to our website you are aware that we recently had a dog wash to benefit area pet rescues and shelters. Even with the heavy rain in the afternoon of the fund raiser we were able to raise a substantial amount of money. My wife Melanie (Mel) and I had the pleasure of presenting a check Kathy the Founder and Karen of Last Paw Rescue. In brief what makes them such a wonderful rescue is they gather dogs from such places as the humane societies where they are at risk of being put down and gives then a new chance to be adopted. The staff was so thrilled to be surprised with a check that they made us feel great to be able to give it to them.

Please visit their website or email them at and find out more about all the great things Last Paw Rescue is doing to save dogs.

Angels Wish

As previously mentioned we had a very successful Dog Wash fund raiser, thanks to our clients and Friends. The above photo is of another of the beneficiaries of that Dog Wash. Sue of Angels Wish a pet rescue and adoption center was presented a check from two of the Waggin Tails and Fitchburg Veterinarian owners Liz Okas and Janeen Smith.


The third and final benificary of the Dog Wash fund raiser money was Fetch, a dog rescue. Carly of Fetch stopped in late in the day receive the check from Ashely one of our receptionist. Thank you to all the dedicated rescues for all their hard work.
