Angell at Essex
Beginning June 30, 2022 Angell at Essex will close temporarily due to a staffing shortage. This closure will last through the summer, and we expect to reopen in mid-September. We understand the impact this has on our patients and their families, and we are doing all we can to reopen as soon as possible.

Angell Animal Medical Center has partnered with Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School (Essex Tech) in Danvers, Massachusetts to create Angell at Essex, a not-for-profit veterinary clinic dedicated to providing quality veterinary care to the general public, including deeply discounted services for qualified low-income families. The new clinic opened its doors in December 2019.
Additionally, Angell at Essex serves as a rigorous academic training program for students enrolled in the Veterinary Science program at Essex Tech. The Veterinary Science program provides clinical training available through the on-site veterinary clinic overseen by Angell clinicians.
