animal ark goodmayes outsideThe story of Animal Ark Vets began in 2002, when Animal Ark Veterinary Centre opened in Goodmayes, Ilford, North East London. 

Of course, at the time, we didn’t know that we were starting the beginnings of such a wonderful community…

At Animal Ark Vets we quickly became known for our quality veterinary care.

As a result, the Animal Ark community has continuously grown, as people whom we have had the pleasure to serve, invite other animal lovers to join in.

We recognise that pets are ‘family members’, ‘beings in their own right’, ‘little furry people’. 

With this in mind, we set about attracting like minded professionals to join our team.
