Rats aren’t only a part of New York City’s underground — they’re an inseparable part of its pop culture. There’s Master Splinter from the Ninja Turtles, Pizza Rat, and even Cannibal Rat. But for every celebrity rat, there’s another 250,000 to 2 million anonymous rodents living in the city — and the city health department is fighting to bring down.

The battle can be deadly. Last year, three people in a Bronx city block contracted leptospirosis through rat urine. Only two survived.

To combat the problem, Mayor Bill de Blasio launched a $32 million initiative to rid New York of its signature rodents, concentrating on hyper-infested areas that the city describes as “rat reservoirs.”

Multiple city agencies are currently focusing their efforts around public housing buildings, where they plan to replace dirt basement floors, block passageways and amp up trapping, baiting and poisoning efforts.They also apply dry ice to the rats’ burrow systems, effectively suffocating them as the carbon dioxide gets released while the ice melts.

But if all else fails, a small group of dedicated rat hunters are ready to step in.

When dusk settles, Richard Reynolds and his vigilante rat hunters known as “The Ryders Alley Trencher-Fed Society” — or R.A.T.S for short — roam lower Manhattan’s streets and dumpsters, keeping their dogs’ instincts sharp and the hunting tradition alive.

In the three decades Richard has been hunting rats with his dogs, he says he must have killed thousands of rats. But he doesn’t really keep track.

A hunter through and through, he only counts the ones that get away.

At Peoria Area Veterinary Group, it is our goal to provide service excellence and superior patient care in order to maintain the highest quality of life for your pet!

Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Chillicothe was established in May of 1999 by John W. Calhoun, DVM. It was originally located at 320 West Cedar Street in Chillicothe, Illinois. After three years of operation, the staff at Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Chillicothe found that they had outgrown the 700 square-foot clinic and decided it was time to build a larger facility. Our current location at 1310 West Truitt Avenue opened its doors in October of 2002.

Then in September of 2006, Dr. John took ownership of Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Dunlap located at 4620 W. Cedar Hills Drive in Dunlap, Illinois. This clinic was originally owned and operated by Richard Calhoun DVM, Jim Withers DVM, and Marvin Mitchell DVM.

As we continued to grow, we realized it was time to continue expanding. We have loyal clients from all around the city of Peoria and decided to open Peoria Area Veterinary Group of Peoria located at 2815 West Townline Road in Peoria, Illinois. Our newest location opened its doors in October of 2007 and started offering Precious Pets Grooming services two years later.
