As 2013 comes to an end we look back at all the bright and shining moments and events that have occurred at the Park Road Veterinary Clinic.
A big thank you to all of our great clients and the support they have shown. We couldn’t do it without you! We have helped the Brant County SPCA, Brant Animal Aid, Dog Guides and Brantford Christmas Baskets. The wonderful donations have helped out so many in need. Hopefully in the New Year we can continue to help and raise awareness.
We began the year doing nail trims for a $10 donation going directly to the Brant County SPCA. This helped to support them in a puppy mill raid that brought over 80 dogs into their care. We fundraised and walked our tails off around Paris for the Guide Dogs. We scared the pants off of people with our second annual Haunted Howl-o-ween. This raised money for both the SPCA and Brant Animal Aid. Helping to fund Shrek and his friends in treatments they required. During the holiday season we offered nail trims for donations of food, pet supplies or toys to the Brantford Christmas Baskets.
Throughout this year we focused on Dental Care, Heartworm, Pet Obesity and Senior Care. During our Dental and Senior months we opened our doors after hours to have Royal Canin Representatives and our own Dr. Gough and Dr. Kungl do demonstrations. During Dental Month we were able to do a mock dentistry that walked the clients through the entire dental procedure. For Senior Month we chose to show them our lab and how it runs from the blood draw to the doctor reading results. Both were quite enjoyed by all based on the feedback we received. February is the start of Dental awareness and we will be planning for an even better focus than the last. Come on out and see what it’s all about. Here at Park Road our goal has, and will always be, to keep your pet(s) healthy and happy.
This year we found ourselves directly involved in a heartbreaking yet heartwarming story of amazing resilience and forgiveness when Shrek the dog showed up at Dr. Gough’s farm. He was a matted scared little swamp creature who with some TLC has transformed into a loving little pet who is spoiled rotten. The story of Shrek went viral and inspired wonderful support worldwide. I don’t think Shrek ever knew just how much his life would change that rainy day, and I know the little guy will never look back!
All in all 2013 brought some amazing opportunities forward to help out our community and we can only hope to continue that on into 2014.
