Community Involvement

Serving the Sea-to-Sky for Over 20 Years


Community involvement is an integral part of the culture at Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital. Our team regularly participates in initiatives in Squamish, and in the larger veterinary community.

Puppy Class

Exposure to other pets, people and situations is vital to your pet’s socialization. Our free puppy classes present a safe and controlled environment for socialization to take place. Conducted by Dr. Honey and Dr. Kirkham, the classes also provide an opportunity ask questions and gain valuable tips and information on a variety of topics about your puppy’s care.


We support the important work of the Squamish SPCA by regularly treating animals on a cost recovery basis. These treatments range from spays and neuters to extremely involved treatment of injury, disease and trauma. Click here for more information on the Squamish SPCA.
