 Rush Animal Care Can Provide All Your Pet Services

Rush Animal Care offers the Johnston  community a full selection of pet services including medical and surgical care, pet boarding and pet grooming. We are located close to a 24 hour facility, and 30 minutes from the College of Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital in Ames. We serve the greater Des Moines area, including Urbandale, Grimes, Clive, West Des Moines, and Ankeny.

We are open for appointments and emergencies during normal business hours and on Saturdays.

We have been serving the Johnston area since 1992 and provide a wide array of services for your pet, including all of their wellness needs (vaccinations, and examinations), laboratory testing, radiographs, and surgery.  We are happy to take care of your pet boarding and pet grooming needs, as well.  Need a new veterinarian?  Call us.  Need a dog groomer?  Call us.  Need a cat groomer? Call us. Need pet boarding?  Call us.


We are excited to be linked to VetStreet, as of October 21, 2012! By clicking on the Pet Portal icon on this web page, you can access your pet's records to view reminders, make requests for appointment (including grooming), boarding, or medication refills. You can print your pet's reminders. Educational pieces can be downloaded. You can send information updates to us, such as address or phone changes, or even a change in your email address. VetStreet can send you a text reminder on an appointment if you provide an eligible phone number. We feel this will offer an added service to you.

We Support Pet Project

The Pet Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping pets with the people who love them. They have a pet pantry that provides food to families who are experiencing financial difficulties, offer temporary housing for pets of battered women, deployed military and the homeless seeking refuge or medical care.

The Pet Project works with landlords to keep pets in their homes. They offer food, supplies and medical care to pets of the homeless. We accept donations for them in our office.
