Join Us for an Open House
Sunday, April 30th from 1 to 4pm
Floyd Harbor Animal Hospital will be hosting its 3rd Annual Open House Carnival on Sunday, April 30th from 1 to 4pm. We are one of the many participating hospitals in the Long Island Veterinary Medical Association’s “Open House Across Long Island” event. These events are being held so that pet owners can take a little time and get to know their veterinarians.
We like to take it one step further and involve our local shelters and community rescue groups so that any proceeds made can be donated towards their cause. This year, all proceeds will be shared between People Advocating for Change (PAC) and Spay, Alter, Vaccinate Every Stray (SAVES). The missions of PAC and SAVES is to improve the quality of life of the animals in our community. Both organizations seek to support struggling pet owners, facilitate access to low-cost spay/neuter programs, and provide medical care and food. In addition, they create a network of animal lovers who provide foster care and work with the police, our local shelter, and the Village of Mastic Beach to improve the plight of the animals of our community.
Our Open House Carnival will be filled with:
- hospital tours
- mock surgeries
- discounted micro-chipping
- Chinese auction
- dog kissing booth
- photo booth
- carnival games
Our Community Garage Sale Was a Success!
Thank you to everyone who attended our second annual Community Garage Sale on September 25. We raised $2,000 to benefit the People Advocating for Change (PAC)!
PAC is a local animal rescue group whose goal is to reduce pet overpopulation and improve the quality of life for the animals within our community. It provides support and education for pet owners struggling to care for their pets, facilitates access to low-cost spay/neuter programs, and has a network of foster homes for pets who need to be re-homed. PAC relies on the generosity of pet lovers to fund its efforts.
Dr. Marissa Goldstein Joins Floyd Harbor Animal Hospital
We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Marissa Goldstein to the Floyd Harbor Animal Hospital family. She is a native Long Islander who grew up in Nassau County. Dr. Goldstein attended Syosset High School and graduated in 2008. She earned a Bachelor's degree in 2012 from the University of Delaware, where she majored in pre-veterinary medicine and minored in wildlife conservation. Dr. Goldstein obtained a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in January of 2016. She is also a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
Our newly minted veterinarian shares her life with Pluto a three-year-old retriever, and two cats, Nemo and Duncan. All three family members were originally from St. Kitts, where Ross University is located, so Dr. Goldstein came back to New York with more than just her DVM diploma.
