VetCor Community Connections - August Edition

As always, our practice teams are out and about in their communities, lending helping hands wherever they're needed. They put on car washes, host food pantries, star in nationally broadcasted PSAs, and even build wheelchairs for their furry friends in need. We are so proud of them for all that they do to help build and foster connections in their local communities.

Check out some of our favorite examples of Community Connections from August below!

Brick Town, NJ recently dealt with some extreme flooding that devastated their community, so the team at Brick Town Veterinary Hospital set up a food pantry. They collected donations of food, toys, and treats for pet owners in need.
