Our Mission states that we are Community Based and Conservation Minded.
But, What does that mean?
Community Veterinary Clinic is committed to serving the community by providing affordable, preventive healthcare for animals and their owners. We believe that every pet owning household should have access to affordable, quality healthcare and advice. Our commitment to helping and promoting animal welfare extends beyond the boundaries of Indian River County. We want to create a global community within our practice by promoting and furthering conservation projects in the US and abroad. A portion of every veterinary bill will be donated to one of three conservation projects in Florida, Grenada, W.I. and Africa. We are committed to the wellness and healthcare of animals in our local community, and we believe in giving back through conservation, education and monetary donations. Contact us to see how we can work for you.
Who We Are
John Clark, DVM
John was born and raised in Malawi, Central Africa. He earned a Zoology, BSc from Liverpool John Moores University, a Postgraduate Diploma from Mweka, College of African Wildlife Management, Tanzania and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from St. George’s University, Grenada. Always on the lookout for warm weather and great golf courses wherever he is in the world, John found both on the Treasure Coast. He has been working at a Not-For-Profit (NPO) in Palm Bay for the last two years, helping members of the community with their pet elective surgery (spay/neuter/mass removal/dental) needs and providing advice and solutions for a range of medical problems. He lives in Vero Beach with his wife Rachel, two young children and dog Molly.
Rachel Clark was raised in small southern towns in Georgia and Virginia and had never heard of Malawi until she took a course in African history at the University of Virginia. She graduated from UVA with a BA in history and moved to New York City and then Washington, DC where she worked in public relations and marketing. In 2007, Rachel traveled to Zambia to work for The Bushcamp Company where she met John. She is responsible for marketing, community events and the general errand girl for the clinic. When she’s not in the clinic you can find her chasing their two children or teaching Pilates in her studio Plank Pilates.
