Livermore Family Pet Hospital
Founded in 1957 by war hero, author, and former Mayor of Livermore, Dr. John Shirley, Livermore Family Pet Hospital (formerly Livermore Veterinary Hospital), is a locally owned veterinary hospital in the Livermore wine country and was the first Veterinary hospital in Livermore and surrounding areas. We are proud to be among the first veterinary hospitals to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), and strive to continue to be on the cutting edge of medicine. You and your pets will be treated like family while receiving the best and most compassionate care that the veterinary profession has to offer.
A Legacy of Caring
Our building itself has a long history, built after World War II, for many years boasted a buried shipping container bomb shelter in the back of the property! Dr. John Shirley started a legacy of caring for his community’s animals, both large and small, and fighting for his community members as well as being an active participant in government, Rotary Club, and many committees over the years. We are dedicated to drawing from the roots of our rich history and serving our entire community through outreach, service, charity work, and quality veterinary care and education.
Carrying the Legacy
Our new owner and established veterinarian, Dr. Heather Moore, is an Army veteran, having served both as an enlisted Army Reserve CBRN soldier, and an active duty Captain of the US Army Veterinary Corp in Fort Hood, Texas. She knows the meaning of service and makes it her mission to serve her patients, clients, and her community both locally and at large. She is a member of the California Veterinary Reserve Corp and is this region’s coordinator in the event of a disaster for emergency veterinary care. She also participates in military and Veteran stand-down events, providing veterinary services to current and former soldiers at no cost.
