Duluth Mayor Nancy Harris officiated at the city’s first ribbon-cutting ceremony of 2013 at Tiger Tails Animal Hospital located at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and Rogers Bridge Road.
After seeing a marked decrease in ribbon cuttings during 2009-2011, and 12 last year, she said it’s good to see small business growth returning to the area.
Many of those who attended the grand opening Jan. 26 ceremony brought their pets.
Gwinnett County Police Officer Matt Bonanno and his K9 partner Ely, a Belgian Malinois, performed a narcotics search demonstration for the crowd. The Georgia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) offered pets for adoption, and Pawsitive Practice provided a dog training demonstration.
Owner Zack Mills, DVM, said the turnout for the ceremony exceeded his expectations. “We appreciate the support from the community, our clients and our business partners for today’s event, and we look forward to serving the area for years to come,” he said.
Zack and his wife, Susan are Duluth residents and members of the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. In addition, Zack is a member of the Leadership Gwinnett 2012-2013 class. He belongs to the American Veterinary Medical Association, Georgia Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association.
Carole Amos, DVM, of Suwanee works with Dr. Mills at Tiger Tails Animal Hospital. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Georgia Veterinary Medical Association, Society for Theriogenology, Atlanta Golden Retriever Club, Golden Retriever Club of America, and Atlanta Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club.
