Cape Cod Animal Hospital never ceased operations after the fire.
Shortly after the fire, the owners of Cape Cod Animal Hospital cleared the land next door and started the construction of a temporary modular building, while seeing patients in the IFAW trailer. Below is the sequence of videos that show the process.

On March 9th 2009 an explosion and horrific fire engulfed the Cape Cod Animal Hospital.

Below is a recap of the time form fire, to the modular units to our current new building in video and pictures and news articles.

​Cape Cod Animal Hospital never really ceased operations after the fire. From treating pets from the back of an SUV, to the generosity of IFAW and their medical trailer to the quick construction of the modulars and then moving into our newly constructed Hospital in the Spring of 2010, what a year it had been!
