Southeastern Guide Dogs expand facility

Posted: Updated:

The Southeastern Guide Dogs organization in Manatee County has a new addition.

The Margaret & Isaac Barpal Veterinary Center is now open. It's a purpose-built, state-of-the-art vet clinic equipped with cleaning systems, air purifiers and a solid waste disposal system. 

Employees say the facility is much needed because there wasn't enough space to adequately care for more than 400 dogs. 

The $1.75 million vet center was built from donations, with half of the funds coming from Dr. & Mrs. Barpal.
