Dr. Michelle Vitulli
Trust and compassion have been a long standing commitment to the pets and clients of Caring Hands Animal Hospital. We value the importance of the human-animal bond and realize the depth of emotions that are a part of this bond.
Caring Hands Animal Hospital, Inc., founded by Dr. Michelle Vitulli, opened its doors in 1997 in Centreville, Virginia. A second location, in Arlington, Virginia, was opened in 2002 with Dr. Jeffery Newman. In 2005, Dr. Vitulli, and Dr. Karen Murphy, opened a third location, in Bristow, Virginia. Both Dr. Newman and Dr. Vitulli opened 2 more locations in 2007 and 2012 in Ashburn and Alexandria, Virginia. Dr. Newman, Dr. Vitulli, and Dr. Murphy, partnered with Dr. Carole Richards to open our Merrifield location in 2014. In 2015, Dr. Vitulli, Dr. Newman, and Dr. Murphy partnered with Dr. Marci Streck to open our Rockville location.
The four owners are very proud that all of the Caring Hands Animal Hospitals boast an open, clean, and welcoming environment. There are windows into virtually every part of the facility.
Clients are encouraged to visit their pets when hospitalized in the treatment room. All hospitals are open for appointments seven days a week.
Caring Hands Animal Hospital is excited to announce the opening of it’s newest location in Clarendon. Dr. Asia Campfield will be a new partner to the Caring Hands Hospital group.
