Rocky - 14yr old Jack Russell Terrier - first patient on 2 3 16

Fourteen-year-old Rocky, a Jack Russell Terrier, was Angell at Nashoba’s first patient.

Angell Animal Medical Center and Nashoba Valley Technical High School have partnered to create Angell at Nashoba,  a veterinary clinic for low income pet owners that also serves as a rigorous academic and experiential training program for students enrolled at Nashoba Valley Technical High School. Opened on February 3, 2016, the clinic provides discounted:

  • Spay/neuter services
  • Vaccinations
  • Basic veterinary care

Open weekdays from 7:45am-4:00pm throughout the year, the clinic does not provide overnight care, specialty service care, nor 24/7 emergency service as Angell’s Boston and Waltham facilities do, but will refer cases as appropriate to surrounding specialty veterinary referral hospitals.

Angell at Nashoba is proud to provide rigorous, valuable training to the bright, compassionate students of Nashoba Valley Technical School who work alongside staff at the clinic while preparing for careers in veterinary medicine.

To schedule an appointment with the Angell at Nashoba clinic, please call 978-577-5992. The clinic is located at: 100 Littleton Road, Westford, Massachusetts.
