Beyond Pet Care: River Run Animal Hospital

River Run Animal Hospital is open and caring for pets! The 4,880 square-foot facility is located in Steele Creek, a suburb 20 minutes outside of uptown Charlotte, NC. Beyond first-rate pet care, it was important that the clinic be comfortable, kid-friendly, and calm. LaBella designed a floorplan that allowed for easy transitions and provided ample natural light which resulted in a relaxing environment for pets, owners, and staff.

Located within Berewick Town Center, the farmhouse exterior was based off the development’s name which translates to ‘Barley Village’, or loosely to farmland. With a prominent position at the entry of the development, it was a challenge to conceal all mechanical units from view. LaBella designers opted to create steep roof pitches with a mechanical well in the center, successfully hiding the units and adding to the farmhouse aesthetic.

As a full-service animal hospital, River Run welcomes emergency treatment cases and pet patients in need of routine medical, surgical, and dental care. The clinic houses 7 exam rooms, a large treatment area and surgery suite, and an interior boarding kennel with a large outdoor play yard.
