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 to provide the most-advanced medical technology available, as well as creature comforts that cater to dogs' and cats' unique requirements. The American Association of Feline Practitioners has named them a Gold-certified Cat Friendly Practice, affirming that they have created a facility that caters to the distinct needs of its feline patients, both in the physical environment of the practice and in the delivery of medical treatment. The newly remodeled hospital boasts such amenities as separate dog and cat waiting areas and a grooming tub with built-in stairs to make the process less stressful on both the groomer and the animals.
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.

Town and Country Veterinary Clinic understands that pet owners are passionate about the health and wellbeing of their furry, feathery, or scaly family members, so they provide compassionate care and employ the latest technologies. Originally founded by Dr. Michael Good—who was eventually joined by his son, Dr. Phil Good, as well as a roster of fellow veterinarians—the practice has grown over the last several decades, and it now boasts locations throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. The team members help preserve animals' health by performing everything from routine checkups to necessary surgeries, such as applying a leg cast to a Labrador or offering wrinkle cream to a Shar-Pei. They utilize x-rays, ultrasounds, and other cutting edge diagnostic technologies as they attentively treat each pet as if it were one of their own. Beyond clinical appointments, the practice offers grooming and boarding services, placing animals under the watchful supervision of passionate caregivers while owners are away.
At Huntsville Animal Clinic, a full-service medical facility, owner and veterinarian Dr. Lisa Jackson uses the latest equipment and a compassionate approach to care for family pets.

To pamper critters and keep them healthy, the doctors also offer dental care, boarding, and grooming services using a HydroSurge bath that deeply saturates fur with medicated shampoos.
