Albany-- A 50-year-old vet practice has a new name and a new plan to stay in East Albany.

Veterinarian Fred Freeland has been in Albany for 10 years.  When the vet he was working at closed, he decided he did not want to leave his home in East Albany.

So, he bought out a 50-year-old practice, once known as the East Albany Animal Hospital. He renamed it Albany Pet Partners, "I think East Albany is one place where primary care is lacking and we are trying to maintain this facility to serve those people who are limited income."

The Albany Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for Albany Pet Partners. It's located on East Broad Avenue.
