Katrina donations are appreciated

We know that although the tragedy caused by Katrina has faded to the back pages the relief work continues. Alpine Animal Hospital would like to thank all the people who dropped off donations for the Red Cross. We especially thank Howie Nave and the folks at the Improv, the birthday party contributions and our clients and friends. Their gracious generosity amounted to over $2,700.
