By Community Involvement No Comments

The Farley Foundation awarded Orillia and District Veterinary Services the Dr. Jim Hysen Friend of Farley Award. This award generally going to an individual who has a significant contribution to the foundation. However, it was awarded us as ODVS has continually gone above and beyond to help his meaningful foundation year after year. We are excited to help out each year, but we were extremely touched that they thought of his for this prestigious award. Thank you!
