Spot On Veterinary Hospital & Hotel offers a variety of services that include an adoption center for cats and dogs, a full-service veterinary hospital with acupuncture and cold-laser therapy, a full-service pet hotel, doggy daycare, grooming spa and pet chauffeur service.
Having opened about a year and a half ago in December 2017, Spot On has made its mark in the Greenwich/Stamford area by helping raise and take care of pets in high-end living facilities, all of which have cameras in them for owners to check in on their pets.
All of their pet playrooms also have cameras with live footage that is accessible to owners from 8:00am to 5:00pm.
Becky Putter, the Director of Operations at Spot On, and her husband Dr. Philip Putter, DVM, a leading veterinarian and founder & owner of Spot On, never felt completely comfortable leaving their pets in other hotels, which gave them the inspiration to launch Spot On in September 2015 to provide a transparent and beautiful place for pets.
“We really wanted to elevate the standard of care for animals,” said Becky Putter. “Our goal is to be a one-stop-shop for everything your pet needs.”
“We’ve had a pig, many chinchillas, rabbits, all kinds of fun animals, even birds, fish, snakes, and a tortoise,” Dr. Philip Putter commented. Home to exotic animals, along with your everyday pets, Spot On strives to give your pets anything and everything they might need.
Aside from their hospital and hotel services, Spot On also shelters cats who are available for adoption.
Three cats in particular have been at Spot On location for the past six months. Their names are Milo, Princess, and Lux, and all three are some of the kindest and friendliest cats around.
Milo, who is about 8 years old, unfortunately lost his owner and is looking for a new home. He’s lived with other cats in the past and is easily able to acclimate to a home with other pets and children.
“Milo’s a total attention hound,” said Kaeley Blum, the Director of Spot On. While he can be mellow at times, Milo loves being petted and played with.
Princess and Lux, the sister-brother duo who will warm your heart, are also attention-seekers, but are a bit quieter.
The siblings first came to Spot On by hitching a ride on a dog transport from a kill shelter in Texas after losing their owner.
Luckily for the pair, Spot On heeded the local rescue’s plea to let the cats onto the transport and bring them into their care.
Because of their journey together and their love for one another, the two are bonded and would need to be adopted as a pair, but they, too, would fit great into any home with other pets and kids living there.
In the meantime, Milo, Princess, and Lux are staying in the five-level tower suites (with windows) and are having fun in the cat playroom, but would love to find a new home.
“To be here is an unusually nice place to live,” Dr. Putter said, “But it’s not nearly as nice as being in someone’s house.”
To adopt any of these cats, along with other pets that are at Spot On (received from owner surrenders, clients who have found lost animals, etc.), you can email Spot On at [email protected] and expect to be emailed back shortly with an online cursory application to see if you are a good fit!
