“On Feb 11th, 2013 the world lost an incredible human being, Ford Petersen. Ford was set to graduate from UC Davis and was following his dream of becoming a veterinarian. All of us at Alicia Pet Care Center were lucky to have spent 4 summers with Ford in our lives and he touched each and every one of us in his own unique way. Ford was a kind and gentle giant of a young man and was dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the animals that he worked with,” Dr. Matthew Wheaton said. “In an effort to allow Ford to make the lasting impact on pets in our community that he so desired, we are pleased to partner with The Ford Petersen Foundation to offer this valuable community service.”
"We hope to allow his life to permanently help animals that are truly in need by designating one day each year, The Ford Petersen Spay Day, as a day of giving back to our community."
**Optional ancillary services such as vaccinations, lab testing, and microchips will be offered at discounted rates.
