Giving Back to the Community
We host the Dog Dayz of Summer event each year to benefit local animal shelters. What began in 2012 as a simple idea with handmade signs has evolved into a full-fledged festival in our hospital parking lot, complete with local vendors, live music, inflatables, face painting, and raffle prizes. The local police department often showcases their police dogs by demonstrating a criminal takedown, and the fire department brings a fire truck for kids to check out. We open up our hospital for tours, and our team spends time getting to know clients on a more personal level and meeting new people. Money raised through raffle ticket sales, vendor fees, and local restaurant “dine and donate” coupons support local animal shelters, such as Whiskers, Tails, and Ferals.
