It is with a very heavy heart that we have to announce the passing of our hospital's founder, Dr. Ray Russo.

Dr. Ray with one of his many furry friends.Dr. Ray passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 2, 2015, surrounded by his family. Those who knew him will always remember his gentleness, his kind heart, his warm smile and his amazing mind. Those of us who are lucky enough to be a part of the Kingston Animal Hospital family will forever be grateful to have had the opportunity to know such a wonderful man.

We will miss his morning visits, his singing in the hallway and his never-ending words of wisdom.

We will miss you, Dr. Ray!
