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.
