Dr. Stephen Shores, founder of Shores Animal Hospital and Prestige Pet Resort in Gainesville, FL, passed in the comfort of his home following a courageous battle with cancer.
Over many decades he provided compassionate care to thousands of pets in the Gainesville community and influenced hundreds of young veterinarians. The world is a better place because of his kind and caring soul.
Please keep his family and the Shores Animal Hospital and Prestige Pet Resort family in your thoughts and prayers.
