Newport, Michigan

Ark Animal Clinic is a veterinary hospital established in September, 2010 by Dr. Tara Pogarch-Galicki, a 2000 Graduate of the Michigan State University School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Pogarch worked for 10 years in two separate clinics before launching her own practice in partnership with her father, Dennis Pogarch, who is the practice manager.  Ark Animal clinic provides routine internal medicine and surgical care for small animals.  In addition, the clinic has facilities to accommodate canine day care and offers obedience classes, and grooming services.  For the Pogarch’s the long term, low interest, fixed rate financing was just what this emerging business needed to help them secure their operating facility on affordable terms that would allow future growth.  Besides the business owners there are a number of adorable, resident cats who are very happy about this!
