“Dr. Forney is a nice, kind-hearted Veterinarian who loves animals and enjoys helping them”… – Roxy Cross, Queen Anne’s Animal Service

Dr. Michael Forney, a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, has been volunteering with Joan Oliver by his side for over 10 years at Queen Anne’s County Animal Services. He began his volunteer efforts by spaying and neutering the animals up for adoption at the Shelter at no cost. However, two years ago he decided that because of the economic decline, many animals were not getting the preventive services or medical attention they needed. He believed this created a need for lower cost animal services in the area, so he began his bi-monthly Queen Anne Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Forney offers wellness care including vaccinations, spay and neuter services, and same day surgeries. He has appointments available every other Thursday and Friday from 8 am- 4 pm. They have been seeing clients from as far away on the Eastern Shore as Delaware to Annapolis on the Western Shore. Joan Oliver says the need for low cost pet care is great as they have noticed by the distance people are willing to travel for their services.

“Dr. Forney is a great asset to the community and without him we couldn’t do what we do. He is in it with his heart and not for the money and it shows,” says Tammy Darrow, founder of Celebrating Pugs, a non-profit rescue on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with chapters nationally in California, Texas and Georgia. Celebrating Pugs rescues Pugs, as well as other breeds of dogs and animals in need of rescue; many of whom need medical treatment and the services offered by Dr. Forney.
