Dr. D and I are at a continuing education meeting, learning about the human animal bond. Always looking for ways to advocate for the bond…some ways AHR does this:
- Weekly visits to Christian Care Assisted Living Center where we bring Stone, Maggie, Sheldon, and other pets to visit the people who live there. They love to hop up in the beds and kiss on the residents.
- Annual visits to elementary schools to promote pet care and the animal bond. LOVE hearing the responses from the kiddos about their pets and how much they love them. We want to be a part of teaching the up and coming “pet owners” to treat animals with respect and love.
- Clinic visitors – we are always open to hosting Girl Scout troops, Boy Scout troops, and classrooms to come see surgeries and tour our facility.
Love hearing from other industry leaders who share the same passions…Zoetis just told us about several programs they are launching to help police dogs/retired miliary dogs, children with cancer, etc. So cool.
