Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center, a nature preserve and landscape park, began as a vision in the 1920?s by John and Margaret Chambliss. In the late 1970s, a group of forward thinkers hatched an ambitious plan to bring Chattanooga citizens closer to nature. With the help of the Junior League of Chattanooga, the group raised more than $500,000. In September 1979, The Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center was born. Since then, the center has had more than half a million visitors to explore its 317 acres containing a certified level IV arboretum, Civil War and Cherokee history, botanical gardens, and native plants, as well as raising awareness with educational programs for adults at schoolchildren. Their efforts have helped to conserve the approximately 45 native animal species inhabiting the Wildlife Wanderland, These animal species include a bald eagle, sandhill cranes, and endangered red wolves.

State-of-the-art when it was built, the environmentally engineered main building has remained largely unchanged over the past 33 years. Features such as solar-heating systems, southern-facing windows, and 99% natural R-38 insulation continue to model sustainable-building practices to park visitors and squirrels looking to passively heat their nests.

Veterinarians Catherine Mabe and Troy Bearden designed Shallowford Animal Hospital, a Gold-certified Cat Friendly Practice according to the American Association of Feline Practitioners, to provide the most-advanced medical technology available, as well as creature comforts that cater to dogs' and cats' unique needs. The newly remodeled hospital boasts such amenities as separate dog and cat waiting areas and a grooming tub with built-in stars to make the process less stressful on both the groomer and the animals.

The groomer, Justine, has more than seven years of experience making all breeds of dogs and cats look dapper. The professionally educated and certified pet stylist prides herself on her scissoring and finishing skills, and can do patterned and custom haircuts.

In addition to grooming and preventative medical services, Shallowford offers surgical procedures that rely on less invasive and less-painful laparoscopic and electrosurgical techniques than traditional surgery. The hospital has been certified by the American Animal Hospital Association since 1997, one of a handful of clinics to hold the designation.

In 1955, a veterinarian named Warren J. Wegert had an idea that must have seemed revolutionary at the time. He wanted to provide pets with the same caliber of healthcare that their human owners received. Since then, Banfield Pet Hospital has upheld his values, treating companion creatures or owners dressed up as them with such success that PetSmart, a national chain of pet supply shops, invited the company to open pet hospitals inside its stores. At each of its locations, veterinarians conduct services that range from heartworm tests and immunizations to more involved procedures such as surgery or weight-loss plans.
