Giving Back to Our NYC Pet Community

Community Involvement by Veterinarians at East Side Animal Hospital in Manhattan, NYCDr. Keith Manning and the entire staff of East Side Animal Hospital believe a caring and thriving veterinary hospital must also be an integral part community it serves. We all love this diverse, vibrant city for all it has to offer, which includes strong and cohesive neighborhood communities. Without our friends and neighbors we simply would not be what we are today.

Therefore, along with providing compassionate and high-quality veterinary services in Midtown Manhattan, we are also committed to being a good neighbor and taking every opportunity to do our part to sustain and strengthen the communities that make up the borough of Manhattan and the greater New York City area. Our veterinarians and staff routinely participate in charitable events and activities throughout the year.

In particular, East Side Animal Hospital works to help sustain and support three nonprofit animal welfare organizations: Friends of Animals, Muffin's Pet Connection and Maddie's Fund. Dr. Manning also serves on the board of Bideawee, one of the oldest humane societies in the United States, and is a board member of the LaGuardia Community College Veterinary Technician program. He also served as president and executive board member of the NYC Veterinary Medical Association and president of NY SAVE for 10 years.

Dr. Manning's work to support the efforts of these many humane societies as well as his compassionate practice of veterinary medicine earned him recognition as the NYC Veterinary Medical Association's Veterinarian of the Year in 1998.

Our veterinary hospital in Midtown Manhattan is grateful to be able to make these contributions, both through volunteer hours and monetary donations. We are proud to act as but one square of a very large quilt of people and organizations helping to sustain and improve the place where we all live.
