“On Feb 11th, 2013 the world lost an incredible human being, Ford Petersen. Ford was set to graduate from UC Davis and was following his dream of becoming a veterinarian. All of us at Alicia Pet Care Center were lucky to have spent the last 4 summers with Ford in our lives and he touched each and every one of us in his own unique way. Ford was a kind and gentle giant of a young man and was dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the animals that he worked with,” stated Dr. Matthew Wheaton.
“In an effort to allow Ford to make the lasting impact on pets in our community that he so desired, we are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Ford Petersen Spay Day at Alicia Pet Care Center. Ford was a dear friend to all of us at Alicia Pet Care Center and left a lasting impression on our hearts. He loved helping animals and hoped to make a long-term difference by becoming a veterinarian. While we feel empty with his passing, we hope to allow his life to permanently help animals that are truly in need by designating one day each year as a day of giving back to our community."
