Who we are
Angell has served the greater Boston and scenic New England area as a primary care facility, a 24-hour emergency hospital, and as a tertiary referral center for over a century.
Angell is part of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA), one of the oldest and most respected humane organizations in the world. The MSPCA is a non-profit, values-based organization with a focus on client service, patient care, and life-work balance. Working for a veterinary hospital that clearly delivers on its mission of advancing the health and welfare of animals adds a wonderful dimension to delivering high quality veterinary medicine.
Waltham is a small city 11 miles from downtown Boston, ideally situated within easy reach of Metrowest communities and those north and south of Boston, with high quality primary care veterinary hospitals serving as our referral base.
