About our town:
Fairhope is well-known for being one of the most charming towns in the South, and the people here are inviting and friendly. With a population of about 17,000, Fairhope sits on bluffs that overlook Mobile Bay, so you're never far from a view of the water. From delicious restaurants to high-end boutique clothiers, Fairhope has a very vibrant and pedestrian friendly downtown where “locally-owned” is the theme. Adjacent to downtown is the Fairhope Pier and Bayfront Park which is the site for various community activities and celebrations throughout the year. Fairhope is about 20 miles from downtown Mobile and only 32 miles away from Gulf Shores which is popular for their large white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.

About Colony Animal Clinic
The veterinary profession isn’t like any other—it’s the only field predicated on the love of a patient who can’t tell you what’s hurting and can only look to you for help. It takes a special kind of person to do that job, or the jobs supporting that job. NVA doesn’t create those special people—we find them, cultivate them, and give them resources and opportunities to do what only they can do. Whether treating patients, managing a pet resort, or serving hospitals from NVA’s Support Center, NVA’s animal professionals are caring people, united by a love of animals. NVA is proud to honor that connection and is committed to serving our team members by providing them with the tools, support, and freedom to be the professionals they’ve always wanted to be.
