Everyone here at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital loves helping animals. We come in everyday, ready to aid in any way we can, whether it be administering medications, providing good preventative care, or sometimes just giving a good belly rub or pat on the head. Recently, we developed the Kylie and Cricket Memorial Fund so that we could help homeless pets in our area.
This year as Christmas approached, the KAH team wanted to do more! When we think about the Christmas season, many of us have memories of Christmas Eve and waiting impatiently for Santa to arrive. While we are all so blessed, we realize that there are many families and children who are not as fortunate. These thoughts led us to adopt a local family who could use some extra help for the holidays.
And what fun we all had!

Many of us with adult families had a blast shopping for children’s toys and games. KAH employees generously spent their own money to purchase board games, puzzles, crafts, dolls, footballs, crayons, markers, clothes, hats and gloves, sleeping bags and even items like shampoo, toothpaste, and laundry detergent. We also spent time together wrapping the gifts and thinking of how excited the children would be on Christmas morning. In fact, we may have had just as much fun preparing the gifts as the children will have opening them!
It’s just one more way we can show that we are not just a veterinary hospital; we are a family. And we love the Frederick area.
Merry Christmas everyone!
