North Portland Veterinarians Provide Pet Care in America's Most Pet-Friendly City

NORTH PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Sep 28, 2011) - Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic, a North Portland veterinary hospital, announced that Portland is ranked "America's Most Pet-Friendly City" by leading pet and lifestyle websites. According to the websites, the top ranking is based on Portland's over 30 off-leash dog parks, dog-friendly restaurants, and high number of businesses and veterinarians who are dedicated to caring for pets. Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic provides routine health screenings, vaccinations, spay and neuter operations, cat and dog dental care, and emergency vet services for North Portland pets.

Dr. Kenneth DeRemer, veterinarian and owner of Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic, announced that Portland is ranked "America's Most Pet-Friendly City" by leading pet and lifestyle websites. Livability.com, BellaDOG Magazine, and DogTripper.com have all ranked Portland as "Number One" for dogs and other pets.

"With over 30 off-leash dog parks and lots of dog-friendly restaurants, it's no surprise that Portland is frequently ranked America's most pet-friendly city," said Dr. DeReemer. "I've lived and worked as a veterinarian in Portland for over two decades, and always thought of Portland as 'pet paradise.' I'm excited that the Portland community is receiving this well-deserved recognition for being a wonderful, pet-friendly city."

Popular areas for dogs in Portland include the riverfront and a 62-acre botanical garden known as "The Grotto." The Lucky Labrador Brewing Company has four locations throughout Portland, and, according to Dr. DeReemer, the "Lucky Lab" welcomes dogs and pet owners alike for some "doggone good food."

According to the rankings, Portland is also home to hundreds of pet-sitters, dog-walkers, trainers, pet food bakeries, groomers, boarders, and other specialty pet business providers.

"Portland is a wonderful city to spend time outside or go hiking near Mt. Hood with your dogs," said Dr. DeReemer. "There are so many great spots to take your pets and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest."

In addition to pet-friendly facilities throughout the city, Portland is also home to many animal rescue organizations, such as Oregon Humane Society, Indigo Rescue, Oregon Dog Rescue, and Pixie Project, which are committed to protecting Portland's animal population.

Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic provides free exams for pets adopted from the Oregon Humane Society or the Multnomah County Animal Services.

"Peninsula Dog & Cat Clinic is proud to serve Portland's pet community, and we are committed to offering quality, compassionate pet care," said Dr. DeReemer. "As a small animal vet clinic, we provide a wide range of services including everything from a routine wellness program to emergency vet care."
