North Pole Veterinary Hospital is proud to serve the community of North Pole and surrounding areas of Alaska. We appreciate the loyalty of our many Fairbanks families that choose our hospital. We provide airport transportation and overnight accommodations for animals that fly in from remote areas of Alaska. We celebrate a special bond with Nome and Galena by coordinating trips into those communities to provide veterinary services more conveniently to those pet families. We believe in providing the highest quality medical care while fostering a welcoming atmosphere. Our staff is comprised of highly trained, compassionate animal lovers who treat patients like their own pets.
We are dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of veterinary technology to ensure our patients have access to the best care available. We also want to provide the caring, gentle touch that you expect from your family veterinarian. Our doctors practice and provide care for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and even some breeds of reptiles/exotics like bearded dragons.
In August of 2006, Dr. Denali Lovely and her husband Patrick Lovely purchased the hospital facility and practice from Dr. Monetti. Since then we’ve partnered with Mission Veterinary Partners (MVP)to expand our practice and services even more! Our larger lobby area and additional exam rooms will make for a smoother visit for both pets and their owners. Currently, our hours are Monday through Friday 8am to 6pm, and we are also open Saturdays 9am to 5pm.
About North Pole, AK: Do you believe in Santa? If not, a visit to North Pole, Alaska is in order. This community of about 2,700 residents keeps the Christmas spirit alive all year long. Only a 15-minute drive south of Fairbanks on the Richardson Highway, North Pole features holiday decorations and trimmings all year–even if it’s 80 degrees in July!
You can drive down streets like Santa Claus Lane, Kris Kringle Drive, and Mistletoe Lane, or stay the night in the Santa Suite at Hotel North Pole. North Pole's best-known attraction is Santa Claus House. The sprawling store holds endless aisles of Christmas ornaments and toys, a live Santa to listen to your Christmas wishes, a 42-foot-high statue of Santa overlooking the Richardson Highway, and walls covered with Dear Santa letters from children around the world.
The town comes alive in December with the annual Winter Festival, which draws crowds with activities, ice sculptures, and fireworks. During this time of year, it’s not unusual for national TV newscasts to broadcast live from the Santa Claus House. At the North Pole Post Office (located on South Santa Claus Lane, of course), more than 400,000 pieces of mail arrive annually simply addressed to “Santa Claus, North Pole, Alaska.” Each year, teams of community volunteers work to respond to each letter.
Besides the novelty of seeing Santa any time of the year, North Pole received some recognition for its restaurants after being featured on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.” It’s an ideal place to be based while visiting the Fairbanks area, especially for RVers. Nearby isChena Lake Recreation Area with 80 campsites along with a swimming beach, paved bike trails, and canoe rentals. Chena Lake offers fishing for arctic char, grayling, and rainbow trout.
Outside of the North Pole City is the town's beloved totem pole and a replica homesteader's cabin. Located near City Hall is the trailhead for Beaver Spring Nature Trail, a half-mile path that winds through a northern conifer forest to North Pole Park. Located on Santa Claus Lane, Terry Miller Memorial Park features a picnic area and playground.
