January 2012 – What it Means to Care First
December 27, 2011
Care First Animal Hospital Canned Food Drive
Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are a busy time for us all, including those organizations that help the less fortunate. With your help, in just two weeks we were able to collect 737 pounds of food for the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina, which serves 34 counties in North Carolina. The 737 pounds of food converts to approximately 620 meals. We have a short video here on our Facebook page.
Thank you for your help, for without your generosity this would not have been possible.
Care First Animal Hospital Community Support
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Care First Animal Hospital is committed to helping our community. In 2011 we provided generous discounts on medical services to the following rescue organizations:
- SPCA of Wake County
- Second Chance Pet Adoptions
- ARF Rescue
- Sound Pet Animal Rescue and Referral
- Triangle Beagle Rescue of North Carolina
- Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue
- Independent Animal Rescue
- Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina
- Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love
- SAFE Haven for Cats
We also participated in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, the SPCA of Wake County Dog Walk, and were a major sponsor to the annual SPCA FurBall. We donated gift baskets and certificates to the Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue Spooky Splash, Second Chance Pet Adoption Auction for the Animals, Relay for Life, and to Scout and Molly’s MS Fashion Show Fundraising Gala. One Sunday a month we open our doors to Second Chance Pet Adoptions for a spay/neuter clinic, and each summer Dr. Wages heads out to the Navajo Nation with a group of students through Christian Veterinary Mission to help animals. When the tornadoes devastated areas of Wake County in April, we helped with cleanup, with housing animals that were left homeless when the storm destroyed their houses, and with free Rabies clinics to make sure all pets stayed safe. We recently had a blast hosting Santa Paws to help the SPCA of Wake County.
Being a responsible, helpful member of the community is an important aspect of the Care First Animal Hospital commitment to do as much good as possible. We couldn’t do it without your help though. Thank you for your donations to these various events, your participation, and for your commitment to us.Back to Blog
