In 2018, Dr. George Melillo set out to develop a veterinary space that reimagined pet care— a place for people dedicated to the care of animals in a healthy, happy, sustainable and successful way.

Heart + Paw was built as a community of the best professionals in the industry that not only puts animals in the best hands, but also equally values its people.

As a veterinarian, Dr. Melillo understood first-hand the exhausting work schedules and compassion fatigue that can lead to a challenging work environment. Heart + Paw’s empathetic approach gives veterinary care teams the ability to thrive, share, learn, and support each other.

Our veterinary-led operations team, including Dr. Melillo as chief veterinary officer supports our teams of dedicated professionals across more than 28 locations in 10 states... and counting.

At Heart + Paw, you and your pet become part of our family from the moment you walk through our doors.
