Start-Up to Watch Award
WellHaven Pet Health was given the Start-Up to Watch Award. It was presented by Alex Hinshaw of Insperity.
WellHaven was launched as a national veterinary practice in the fall of 2017. They built 12 de novo AAHA veterinary hospitals (four local), acquired 30 quality veterinary practices (four local) and are poised to have 50 facilities nationwide by the end of 2019. WellHaven’s corporate offices and its first branded location are in downtown Vancouver and they have created more than 100 jobs in the Southwest Washington/Portland market. Even before the company officially began operating, WellHaven’s founding team had built a strong and focused platform that intentionally connected their long-term strategy for growth and success with the community’s long-term growth and success.
WellHaven support includes local school career days, Farmers Market participation, Clark County Fair Veterinary booth volunteers, Ridgefield Raptors and Ryd mobility sponsor. They also sponsor and are active volunteers with Humane Society for Southwest Washington, Mostly Mutts, People United for Pets, West Columbia Gorge Humane Society and Pet Peace of Mind.
Finalists for this award included The Diner Vancouver and Wolf Industries Inc.
