Creature Comforts Animal Hospital is an AAHA-accredited, veterinarian-owned, modern facility offering the best compensation and working environment in the Hudson Valley of New York.

If you are unfamiliar with Poughkeepsie and the Dutchess County/Hudson Valley Region, it is a combination of tremendous natural beauty and recreation alongside the conveniences of suburban life and college towns. You are surrounded by restaurants, breweries, vineyards, orchards, rivers, mountains and parks while also being proximate to the metropolitan centers of New York City (90 minutes south by train or car) and Albany (90 minutes north by train or car).
