Since our doors first opened in 2013, we have been strong advocates of the “Going Green” movement and always aim to keep our earth as healthy as possible in the same way we do our patients. We share the planet with many amazing creatures and pride ourselves in doing what we can to make less of a negative impact on the environment. We partnered with PACE to set the standard for environmental sustainability, salvaging and re-using and re-purposing building and landscaping supplies as we built Left Hand Animal Hospital. Our landscaping is designed as pet friendly and low water use, doing double duty to help our pets and our environment. We have recycling throughout the practice, and partner with our vaccine, medication, and supplies providers to recycle shipping containers…..our recycling container is bigger than our trash containers! We have energy efficient lighting and the exterior of the building is designed to prevent light pollution at night, even as we keep our exterior safe for pets and families. We have highly efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). Our location is on the local bus route, allowing our team to use the bus to get to work to help encourage public transportation. We even have bike racks to encourage local pet parents to pick up medications and supplies by foot power!
Left Hand Animal Hospital is committed to more sustainable energy. We use Windsource® , which allows customers to get more or all of their energy from renewable resources, including windfarms that create electricity. As one of the nation’s largest voluntary renewable energy programs, Windsource is an easy, inexpensive way to make a difference. Left Hand Animal Hospital uses Windsource to make all that we do more sustainable for the environment.
