VCA Tri City Animal Hospital & Acacia Cat Hospital is also an AAHA (American Animal Hospitals Association) accredited hospital since 1978, making us one of the finest hospitals in the industry. Established in 1933 by veterinary leaders, AAHA sets "The Standard in Veterinary Medicine" by helping other veterinary professionals effectively deliver the best in animal care.
Being an AAHA-accredited hospital means that we are evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence every three years. These standards address a variety of issues related to both patient care and the facility, including exam facilities, dental care, diagnostic imaging, and cleanliness.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) represents practitioners in the veterinary community who are passionate about the care of cats and supports its members in improving the health and welfare of feline patients. With a reputation as a leader in the field of feline medicine, the AAFP helps veterinary practices establish a feline-friendly environment that reduces stress for cats during veterinary visits.
The Cat Friendly Practice® program is a leading movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. This global initiative is designed to elevate care for cats by assisting practices in developing calming, cat-friendly environments and reducing stress for felines before, during, and after their veterinary visit.
As a Low Stress Handling™ certified practice, our goal is to recognize fear and anxiety in our patients. We use techniques to meet your pet's need for mental and physical comfort while in our hospital, and adjust our handling and medical treatments to help reduce their stress. We are always working to give your pet the best medical care with the least amount of stress possible. We are proud to be a Low Stress Handling™ certified animal hospital.

Sojourner Center Pet Companion Shelter
Pet abuse and domestic violence go hand in hand. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, more than 40% of domestic violence victims do not escape their abusers because they are concerned about what will happen to their pets when they leave. Prior to Sojourner Center, there had been no domestic violence shelters in Maricopa County that allowed pets unless the pet was a service animal, leaving pet parents with the dreadful decision to save themselves at the risk of their pet being abused, tortured or killed or to not leave at all. In 2015, Lost Our Home Pet Rescue partnered with Sojourner Center, one of the largest domestic violence shelters in the United States, and established a Pet Companion Shelter so that women and children escaping domestic violence can bring their pets with them and heal together.Visit Sojourner Center Pet Companion Shelter
