Dear Elkins Park family,

Due to the current covid-19 crisis, It is with a heavy heart that we have made the difficult decision to merge the Elkins Park location with our larger sister hospital in Huntingdon Valley.  The restrictions placed on us, as well as the community, and shortage of supplies, have made it impossible to remain open at this time. This is not something we take lightly and we deeply regret that we are no longer able to see appointments at our Elkins Park location.

Rest assured we stay committed to helping and caring for all our patients and are available 7 days a week at our other nearby locations in Huntingdon Valley and Mayfair. Have no fear your records are all safe and accessible to you and our doctors.  

Dr. Stupine is working out of our Huntingdon Valley office and we will be transitioning our support staff to other locations soon. We hope to be able to bring Dr. Messina back at one of our other offices once the crisis is under control.

It has been an honor and a pleasure serving you and your pets these past four and a half years. It is our sincere hope that you will continue to allow the World of Animals’ family of doctors and staff to serve you and your fur-babies at one of our other locations.  Our phones will still be answered so feel free to call 215-635-2700 for information or to schedule an appointment.

Thank you for your patronage, support and most of all for entrusting us with your pets’ veterinary care.
