Why is our hospital called The Ralph?
Ralph was an adorable rescue cat that Shailen helped to treat after he was hit by a car in 2008. They went on to spend two years sharing a home together before Ralph sadly passed away in 2010. It was in his memory that Shailen set up The Ralph Site, a non-profit online pet loss community that supports countless carers through the bereavement process. When Shailen’s idea for a veterinary referral hospital was born, it felt only right that as a lasting tribute to the wonderful Ralph, the hospital be named in his honour.
