In 2003, the doctors acquired Meadow Pond Animal Hospital in Moultonboro, NH from Dr. Richard Abbott. As the client base grew and the veterinary profession evolved, the doctors decided that in order for them to provide the highest quality patient care and cutting edge medicine, it was time to expand the relatively small hospital, which they did exponentially in 2006.
Dr. Keenan and Dr. North and staff strive to treat every patient as their own and every client as family. Throughout the years Meadow Pond Animal Hospital has become a valued facet of the tightly knit community.
In 2011, to better serve their growing client base which now extends well beyond the Lakes Region, Dr. North and Dr. Keenan purchased an additional location on Rte. 16 in West Ossipee. They began work on a complete renovation to convert the building to an animal hospital that reflects their high standards. The Ossipee location opened in the spring of 2012.

Dr Cara Sammons-Shepard grew up in Maine and graduated from Massachusetts College of Art in 2004 with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts. While teaching Art in southern Maine, she and her husband started Flying Goat Farm, and caring for the goats, especially breeding and kidding, gave Dr Shepard the inspiration to change career paths.
