Sullivan County, NY (June 6, 2023) – The Animal Hospital of Sullivan County welcomes all animals—even doves! The veterinary hospital in Ferndale, NY is the newest site on the Sullivan Catskills Dove Trail. They will unveil their new dove sculpture on Saturday, June 17 at 12 p.m. at 667 Harris Rd, Ferndale, NY. The unveiling ceremony will be held during their 70th anniversary “birthday bash”. The event will go from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and includes an open house, food, music, and hospital tours.
“Pets are family,” said Jack Bodolosky, owner of the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County. “We treat each pet that comes into our clinic as our own and will always keep it that way. The dove sculpture, which was painted by local artist Kim Simons, depicts our love for all animals with a vibrant and colorful dove design.”
Bodolosky also runs Warrior Companion, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing health care insurance for service animals of wounded American veterans. “I have a strong desire to give back to our community while also lending a helping hand to veterans in need of assistance,” Bodolosky said.
"We are thrilled to introduce this inspiring dove sculpture to the Sullivan Catskills Dove Trail," remarked Roberta Byron-Lockwood, President/CEO of the Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association. “The Animal Hospital provides a much-needed service to our community, and both our residents and visitors appreciate their attention to care.”
The Sullivan Catskills Dove Trail invites everyone to explore the newly added artwork and discover the profound stories behind each sculpture.
