Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina’s Pet Food Bank and Park Cedar Animal Hospital have teamed up to provide free veterinary care to pet owners who can’t afford basic veterinary care. The event will take place on Sunday, December 9, 2012, beginning at 7:00am – until all inventory is gone. Pet owners in need have already been selected and notified.
Furry Friends Day will include wellness exams, vaccines, blood testing (including heartworm and Fecal Tests) and Heartworm Preventative. Some pet owners will also receive spay, neuter and dental procedures. Second Harvest Food Bank will provide free food for cats and dogs, treats, beds and dishes.
Furry Friends Day is a result of the Furry Friends Fund, which is a charity started by the Park Cedar Animal Hospital. The charity helps the four-legged loved ones of those who can’t afford basic animal care services. The fund was started in January 2012 by hosting dog washes and pack walks every month. All proceeds for these events have gone into the Furry Friends Fund.
