After less than a year in business at the Mountain View Plaza, Alaska Affordable Veterinary Care has closed its doors. There was no immediate explanation. Dr. Jessie Rizor, the clinic’s owner, could not be reached by phone Monday. The usually active business Facebook page disappeared; the website left blank. Nobody had heard anything about the unexpected closure — not the dentist or the bartender next door, the landlord or the commercial realtor who brokered the lease last year. Loyal patients were left dumbfounded. There was no note on the locked clinic door, just this message on the voicemail machine. “We are sorry for the inconvenience, but Alaska Affordable Veterinary Care has closed indefinitely. Please leave your name, pet’s name and what clinic, email or fax you would like your records sent to. No phone calls will be returned.” This story will be updated.
