About Us


Our History

Originally founded as Orphans of the Storm® Animal Clinic in 2001, Ruth Helen Wolf Animal Clinic & Hospital is backed by years of dedication to our loyal customers. Our name is in honor of the individual who so generously donated funds to help make our dream of a new state of the art facility a reality. As a full service veterinary hospital you can rest assured that your companion animal's wellbeing is in the most capable hands. 

Conveniently Located

Our new facility is conveniently located in Libertyville with easy access to our own private drive where there is ample parking. We are in the immediate area of southern Libertyville, bordering Vernon Hills, Mettawa and Lake Forest. If you had ever visited the original Clinic, we are exactly three miles north along Milwaukee Avenue, just north of Townline Road.

Our Payment Policy

We require full payment at the time of your particular service. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.

Read What Our Client Say

  • "Best Vet team ever!! Thank you Dr Setlock for always being there and taking such wonderful care of all my furry baby's!!"
    Yvette Manzella (Facebook)
  • "Quality care from an amazing staff. The service we've received is second none. Despite this, it is still the most affordable vet I've found. Don't hesitate to bring your pets here, they are cared for by people who genuinely care about animals."
    Jeff Makoroff
  • "It can be difficult to find a veterinary clinic that has wonderful doctors and staff, but Wolf Animal Hospital has it all! I especially appreciate all of the hard work from Dr. Herron. She is patient and kind, and she is always willing to answer every question you might have. She helped me find techniques that allowed my 12 year-old dog to lose weight and helped us choose the best arthritis medication for him. I know my family and I appreciate everything she has done for our pets, and we'd recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and friendly veterinarian!"
    Andi Cluster
  • "Dr reisterer is very nice and knowledgeable. Very reasonable cost also. No BS fake tests done to increase your bill"
    William Bennett
  • "Dr Setlock is the absolute BEST! He and his team, many of whom have been with him for many years, are both talented and caring. He has wisdom of the years and is able to give a long view of certain problems and how to tackle them. I have been a loyal client since 2004, with multiple rescues, fosters, special needs dogs, and dogs who have developed various disorders through the course of their lives. I wouldn't trust my many fur babies to anyone else!"
