This month we shine the spotlight on the Burloak Animal Hospital. Dr. Wolfgang Zenker established the clinic in 1970 and today it is a thriving multi-doctor practice with a great group of dedicated and long-term staff who provide medical care to a wide range of animals. The Oakville & Milton Humane Society’s (OMHS) relationship with Burloak Animal Hospital stretches back nearly three decades! Learn more.

It also makes your dog instantly identifiable to anyone who may come across your pet and helps avoid the daily boarding charge. Best of all, a lost licensed dog will likely be at the shelter for just hours, not days. Learn more.
