New Emergency Vet Clinic Opening Soon in James City

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

JAMES CITY-A new emergency veterinarian clinic will open this fall in the Williamsburg Crossing Shopping Center on John Tyler Highway in the space that was previously a Zaxby’s restaurant.

Coastal Animal Referral Emergency (CARE) is an emergency vet practice offering medical care for pets when the family vet is unavailable. The new business is located at 5295 John Tyler Highway.

An exact opening date for the new clinic has not been announced. In anticipation of the opening, CARE is hiring part-time and full-time veterinary assistants and client service representatives for both daytime and overnight shifts. Critical care and ER experience are a plus. To apply, click here.

Construction on the new vet clinic first began earlier this year. The building had been sitting vacant since 2017 following the closing of Zaxby’s.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
