Advanced Veterinary Care and Surgical Center, Silver City, NM, announces the return of general veterinary services
I'm Dr. Shelby Bradberry from Advanced Veterinary Care and Surgical Center here in Silver City. My husband, Dr. Britton Bradberry, and I started our practice here from the ground up in 2014. We built a successful practice, providing advanced, up-to-date, "big city"-type medicine for our patients and clients, at an affordable price. However, COVID put us in a position where we had to rely heavily on our out-of-town clients who were still coming for advanced surgery, so we closed general practice doors in late 2021.
We recently hired Dr. Tiffany Pierce, who is now seeing patients for general practice needs. This means we are able to provide wellness visits, vaccinations, microchips, spays and neuters, dentals, and all the other services that come with general practice. We have digital radiography, an ultrasound, dental equipment similar to human dentistry, hospitalization with IV fluids and care, and so much more. We named our clinic "Advanced" for a reason. We are so happy (as are our clients) to provide the Southwest these services at an affordable price.

You've heard of end-of-school celebrations, but have you ever witnessed one that changed lives? Today, we're sharing the incredible story of how WNMU Residence Assistant Itzella transformed a simple tradition into a lifeline for those in need.
As students said their goodbyes and emptied their dorms, Itzella saw an opportunity to turn potential waste into hope. Instead of letting valuable items end up in the trash, she organized the Silver City Gospel Mission end-of-school-year donation drive. This ingenious initiative rescued countless items for further use, bringing smiles to the faces of those who needed them most.
Imagine a world where every small action leads to an avalanche of good deeds.
