VCA Greater Savannah Animal Hospital


  • Kennel Assistant

    Jeff Mitchell

    Growing up on a farm in Vidalia, Georgia, my parents taught all of their children that our pets were a part of our family. We were responsible for their physical and mental well being. Some of our pets were animals that other people had no use for or had special needs. It was a joy to see these animals thrive with attention, love, proper feeding and a place to call home. When I started working at VCA, I wanted the animals to feel comfortable and well taken care of, a place they didn’t dread coming to and where they could connect with someone. I wanted it to be a place that their owners know they are safe and well taken care of. When I feel that the pets have no fear of staying with me and actually enjoy being at VCA for boarding, I know that I have done my job to the best of my ability and I have made a difference. That’s why I do this for a living - to make a difference with the animals I come in contact with.

    Jeff is a terrific team member and wonderful kennel technician. His background is working in the human medical field but has chosen to work in the veterinary field instead because pets are cuter. His love of animals shows in his work. Jeff also has a dog named Echo that he rescued from the local animal control shelter.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you.
