About Us


A little background...

 In October of 2005, local veterinarians met to discuss common concerns in their industry.  One concern that emerged was the future availability of emergency veterinary services in the area.  Individually the veterinarians were not interested in opening an emergency facility.  However, the sale of the Westminster 24 Hour Veterinary Trauma Center property to McDaniel College made the veterinarians question the impact it may have on their clients and their pets.   As a result, 29 local veterinary professionals organized Central Carroll Animal Emergency, LLC (CCAE) to fulfill a need for high quality, trustworthy, after hours care for their patients. We proudly opened this community-owned emergency veterinary facility in September 2006.
