Who We Are

At Bark Avenue Animal Hospital, the doctors and staff know the special role pets play in our lives. Our goal has always been to work hard to provide an affordable, family-friendly atmosphere, where pets will receive the best quality care delivered with compassion. In addition, treating our clients like family and their pets as if they were our own is important to us. Above all, regardless of the nature of your visit, choosing the right veterinarian for your pet based on their needs is important.

We go above and beyond.

Proudly, we are an AAHA Accredited hospital. Although this is not required, AAHA covers 900 standards of veterinary care and we believe it’s important to make sure our clients and their pets are receiving the highest quality care possible.


The Bark Avenue building has been around since the 1960s. It was originally a full boarding facility with a built-in house where the owner used to live. The old kennel and grooming shop is now our current warehouse and the old house is used for offices and meetings. It was purchased in 1997 and redesigned to create a state of the art, all-inclusive service destination for pets and all their needs.

The Pet Resort, which includes grooming, boarding, and the later addition of daycare, was opened in the new building in July of 2004. The animal hospital was opened shortly thereafter and Bark Avenue Pet Supply opened its doors in March 2005 with the goal of providing healthful, natural pet foods that could not be found in the big box or chain stores. The hospital was initially leased by a local veterinary group and in 2009, Bark Avenue Animal Hospital was opened under the same ownership as the Pet Resort and Pet Supply store.

The Bark Avenue complex was designated an “Extraordinary Property” by the City of Mesa in 2015. Dr. Ryan Ainsworth purchased Bark Avenue as a whole in 2018 with goals to keep continuing to improve and to create a fun and comfortable environment for pets and all their needs while bringing the additional benefits and resources of our sister hospitals Mesa Northeast Animal Hospital and Noe’s Ark Animal Hospital.


Mesa Northeast, Noe’s Ark, and Bark Avenue Animal Hospitals request you give us 24 hours notice of cancellation of your appointment so we may offer the time to another client. If this notice is not given or you do not show up for your scheduled appointment, a $58 fee will be charged to your account. This will need to be paid as well as a prepaid exam when you schedule your next appointment.
