WE ARE ADDING A NEW DOCTOR!
We are happy to announce that, on June 1, we will be adding Dr. Brett Pendergrass to our excellent team of veterinarians! Dr. Pendergrass is an experienced large and small animal veterinarian. He earned his undergraduate degree at UNC Charlotte and later graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine at NC State University in 2009. Previously, he was an associate veterinarian at Statesville Bovine and Equine Clinic here in Statesville. Most recently, he was on the team of doctors at Conover Veterinary Hospital, working with small animals. We are so excited that he has chosen to join our "family" at Animal Hospital of Statesville!
ANIMAL HOSPITAL OF STATESVILLE'S CHARITABLE GIVING, 2020
FOOD FOR DAYS
Last year we started collecting items for the Food for Days program. Food for Days provides backpacks for kids who don't get proper food, or any food at all, on the weekends. These items are easy for the kids to eat and require no cooking except, perhaps, microwaving. As a results kids can have full bellies to go back to school on. Empty bellies don't help children learn. They can't concentrate on school work if their bellies are hungry. Please help us collect these items throughout 2020. Most are inexpensive, and, even if you can only purchase one box, you'll be helping local children. Some of these may be purchased in cases, and of course, we love that, too! Big or small, your donations are really appreciated by us at Animal Hospital of Statesville, and by the children who will benefit from your generosity. Here is the month-to-month list of food items we will be collecting in our lobby: May: Ravioli (flip top cans, please), June: Oatmeal (variety pack), July: Crackers (variety pack), August: Ramen Noodles, September: Pop Tarts, October: Complete Meals, November: Fruit & Applesauce Cups, December: Vienna Sausages
As always, the support of our clients and community has been fantastic. We continue to strive to make our community a better place to live, and with your help, we are making great strides toward that goal! Thank you!
