In 1999, Dr. Julia Leese, DVM, opened Mountain Empire Veterinary Service in hopes of being able to help people and their pets receive a better experience in a like-home veterinary practice.
To help with this mission, Mountain Empire started a compassion fund that people may donate to and help those less fortunate to receive pet care.
In 2003, Dr. Leese expanded the clinic to include Boarding, Professional Grooming, Self-Service Dog Wash facilities and an Adoption Center. This expansion is Julia's Jungle.
Julia's Jungle provides a clean and safe environment for all animals that stay or just come to visit.
Dr. Leese created Julia's Jungle to help animals in jeopardy of euthanasia at the local shelters. Also, to help ensure that as many adoptable animals as possible are placed into permanent loving homes. Julia's Jungle has a strict no-kill policy, this means we will keep the animal until it is adopted.
Our adoption fee of just $75 helps to defray the cost of their care and vetting so we can continue saving more animals! All of out adoption animals are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their vaccinations and are micro-chipped before they go to their new home. Also, dogs/puppies will be dewormed and cats/kittens will be tested for leukemia.
Wouldn't you consider opening up your heart and home to one of our adoption animals in need of a permanent home?
Please feel free to stop in and visit our animals anytime!
