About Cape Animal Referral and Emergency Center

History

In July 2003, a group of fourteen local veterinarians had a vision to open the first emergency veterinary hospital serving Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket. Cape Animal Referral and Emergency Center (CARE) saw the first patient on May 17, 2004. Initially, CARE was seeing emergencies on weekends from a local practice. As the emergency caseload grew, CARE expanded their emergency hours and added veterinary specialists during the week for referral appointments. In January 2006, Cape Animal Referral and Emergency Center opened a new state-of-the-art hospital in South Dennis.
