About

North Shore Animal League America’s Pet Health Centers, which consist of the Alex Lewyt Veterinary Medical Center, Don and Karen LaRocca Pet Wellness Center, and the Elizabeth Freed Special Recovery Center, is a fully operational hospital equipped with state of the art equipment to provide high quality, affordable care and wellness to animals in need. Whether you adopted your beloved four legged friend from us or rescued them elsewhere, your pet will receive the best possible medical care at affordable rates. Each time you bring them to our Pet Health Center, located on Animal League America’s Port Washington, N.Y. campus, you are supporting our no-kill mission – with every dollar going towards our mission to Rescue, Nurture, Adopt and Educate! That means that not only are you providing top-notch care for your pet, but you are also helping orphaned animals receive quality care and the chance to be adopted into loving homes.

Our veterinarians and medical staff are compassionate and enthusiastic, and provide incredible care at very affordable rates. We are a full service facility with state of the art equipment including digital radiology, endoscopy, on-site laboratory, oxygen therapy, ultrasound, and a full dental suite.

A lifetime of affordable care for your beloved pets

American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA)

North Shore Animal League America’s Alex Lewyt Veterinary Medical Center is proud to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. Fewer than 15% of animal hospitals in the U.S. hold this distinction.

As a forward thinking facility, we take pride in keeping up with the newest technology to meet the ever changing needs of our clients.

“Being accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) validates our commitment to providing the highest level of medical care for all of our patients,” – Dr. Mark Verdino, Animal League America Senior Vice President & Chief of Veterinary Staff

Established in 1933 by leaders in the veterinary profession, AAHA is the only companion animal exclusive veterinary association. AAHA is best known for its accreditation of companion animal practices. To become accredited, companion animal hospitals undergo regular comprehensive evaluations by AAHA veterinary experts who evaluate the practice on approximately 900 standards of veterinary care.
