Who We Are

In 1994 our founders identified the need for an emergency care facility for owners and their pets in the Huntsville area. With the aim of providing expert overnight and critical care, Dr. Sheri Fastnrath and a committee of veterinarians founded The Animal Emergency Clinic of North Alabama.

In 2018 we became AECC and in 2019, our hospital transitioned to caring for patients 24/7. We continue to push the boundaries of veterinary medicine while remaining dedicated to the Huntsville community.

We strive to provide medical excellence and collaborate closely with our veterinary community to ensure their patients receive the care and treatments they deserve.
