Since its founding in 2002 in Rosebank, Bay Street Animal Hospital has been an integral part of the Staten Island community. Over the years, BSAH has grown into the largest independently owned animal hospital on Staten Island. The full-service facility provides state-of-the-art medical, surgical, emergency, and intensive care, as well as professional grooming and a luxury pet hotel. To celebrate its special long-term relationship with its neighbors, Bay Street Animal Hospital will be holding its annual block party on Sunday, June 23, from 2–7pm.
The block party is open to anyone who wants to join the celebration, including family members of all ages, and furry friends. The party will be hard to miss. It will be taking place over the entire block on Lynhurst Avenue between Bay Street and Edgewater Street, which is adjacent to BSAH’s main entrance and parking lot at 999 Bay Street.
Complimentary food service includes hot dogs, pizza, ice cream, fresh fruit, and soft drinks. Participants will be able to tour BSAH’s state-of-the-art animal hospital and meet the entire staff, including senior veterinarians. Entertainment will be provided, and there will be special discounts and savings offered on veterinary care and pet accessories.
According to Dr. Robert B. Cohen and Dr. Theresa Ann Cavallaro, co-founders of BSAH in 2002, the hospital’s long-term success is based on what makes BSAH special.
Dr. Cavallaro is quick to add that what really makes Bay Street Animal Hospital special is its people. “It’s all about the people. A compassionate team of six full-time veterinarians with a combined work experience of over 120 years and a seasoned support staff and technicians of 35 allow us to provide the best medical care and services at the highest technical level. Yet the emphasis here has always been on the long-term personal bonds we form with our neighbors and clients and their beloved pets. That is what we will be celebrating at the block party this June 23rd.”
