Ziggy was named after Bob Marley’s son, Ziggy. He started out as our daughter’s fluff ball weighting only a few pounds. After she married and took him to live with her and her husband, we missed him so much she felt sorry for us and let him live come live with us knowing she could see him as often as she wanted. Ziggy is our greeter and welcomes everyone at our door including the mailman. His hobbies are chasing rabbits, going to the beach, rummaging through the garbage when we aren't looking and stealing food from the counters. ~ Joe
Each month, the staff at Birdneck Animal Hospital publicly acknowledge one our many wonderful patients by sharing their heartwarming story with others through our Pet of the Month. In addition, Birdneck Animal Hospital makes a donation, in the name of each of our Pets of the Month, to NOBLEPETS. What is NOBLEPETS?
Noblepets is a new branch of the Noblemen Organization that has been spearheaded by our very own Dr. Johnson. Dr. Johnson and the Noblemen have created this wonderful platform as a way to allow more individuals a way of giving back to the community, while at the same time publicly acknowledging your pet, and telling the world why your pet is noble. Monies raised through Noblepets go toward helping provide local children and veterans who are disabled with specially trained aid dogs to make their lives less difficult.
The Birdneck Noblepet Of The Month have their picture displayed on the Noblepet Wall of Honor at the Birdneck Animal Hospital, and have their photo as well as their story posted on the web sites of the Birdneck Animal Hospital and The Noblemen. Each owner also receives a T-shirt and car magnet announcing that their pet has been recognized as a Noblepet.
