It is with deep sadness and heartfelt sorrow that we inform you of the passing of The Ark Animal Hospital's beloved founder, Dr. Jay Howard Jones. For over 50 years, Dr. Jones devoted his life to improving the lives of all the animals and families he served. He was the heart of our Ark family, and his absence will forever leave a void within us all.
A sincere thank you to all of our clients for your kind words, condolences, thoughts, and prayers since the loss of Dr. Jones. The Ark Animal Hospital will continue to operate with the very capable veterinarians that Dr. Jones and his staff entrusted to care for your family's pets during his illness. The Ark will continue to provide the same exceptional level of care while Dr. Jones' daughters seek to hire a veterinarian with the same vision, expertise, and values with which Dr. Jones started his practice over 40 years ago.
The Ark will surely not be the same without Dr. Jones, but please be assured that great care will be taken by his family and staff to ensure your animals' needs are met fully to exceed Doc's expectations.
Thank You for your continued support of The Ark Animal Hospital,
Ashley Maralit and Petie Lochstampfor and his devoted staff
