ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Monroe County announced on Wednesday that a new 24-hour emergency veterinary clinic will open in Rochester.

It comes as Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Services in Brighton, once area’s only 24-hour emergency vet clinic, closed permanently in late November.

The new clinic, called Rochester Emergency Veterinary Services, will be housed in the same building as the Animal Hospital of Rochester on University Avenue. The clinic will have the support of $100,000 from COMIDA, the Monroe County Industrial Development Agency.

The clinic will be a non-profit, so the community will be heavily involved in keeping it running. The opening of the facility will create 30-35 jobs, including technicians, assistants and client services reps. The plan is for the new clinic to open on Feb. 1.
