VetCor Community Connections - January Edition

As always, our practice teams are out and about in their communities, lending helping hands wherever they're needed. They collect donations for various organizations in their communities, help fundraise for good causes, get nominated for awards, win awards, offer special programs to pet owners in need, and earn new certifications to be able to provide the best care for their clients' pets. 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 January below!
