2017 Donation Drive – RESULTS Part 2

As the second wonderful organization we were able to collect for during this donation drive, our friends at GrandPaws Pantry were almost as excited as we were with the results! With collection bins at five of our valley locations, once again our amazing family – doctors, employees, and incredible clients – united to create a truly awesome impact.

From collars and leashes, to blankets, litter boxes, toys, food, treats and more, GrandPaws Pantry shelves got a little boost! With nearly 300 donated items, we had to be careful to leave room in the cars for the drivers when loading up the donations! In addition, with our partners matching the donations, a cash donation of $1,250 was also in the mix!

Check out some of the photos here:

As we said previously, we are so proud, honored, excited, and humbled that together, we could help make such a wonderful impact for these great organizations in our community!

2017 Donation Drive – RESULTS Part 1

Earlier this week, the folks from Helping Hands for Homeless Hounds stopped by to pickup the donations collected on their behalf at 15 of our valley locations. Truthfully, we could not be more proud, excited, and humbled that our INCREDIBLE family – doctors, employees, AND amazing clients – came together in such an incredible way.

An incredibly vast array of desperately needed items were collected, from blankets and towels, to beds, kennels & carriers, wet and dry food (cat & dog), harnesses, grooming tools & supplies, puppy pads, strollers, toys, litterboxes, clothes, and so much more.

Together, we generated:
– A total of 33 donation boxes, containing over 2,6oo items!
– It took 6 SUV’s filled top-to-bottom to transport the donations!
– Our partners matched the donations, and contributed $3,300 in cash!

Stay tuned for Part 2…

Let’s Stock Grandpaw’s Pantry!

This holiday season, members of the Arizona Pet Vet family are banding together to play not-so-secret Santa Paws for small community-based organizations that make a big difference for pets in need.

Grandpaw’s Pantry provides pet supplies to rescued ‘pets to be’ — animals that are waiting to find their people and forever homes.

Grandpaw’s Pantry is a nonprofit founded by a delightful youngster named Sonya, who’s also the enthusiastic owner of several rescue pets. In her words,

I want to encourage people to open their hearts and their homes and consider rescue pet adoption. I also want to be an animal advocate for the many dogs and cats and other animals in desperate need.”

What They’re Wishing For:

  • Pet Collars/Leashes (all sizes)
  • Unopened Food (dry & canned)
  • Pet Beds (dog & cat)
  • Pet Toys (dog & cat)                
  • Pet Blankets
  • Food Bowls
  • Nylabone Dog Treats
  • Litterboxes & Scoopers
  • Cat Litter

We’re collecting donations at the following AZ Pet Vet locations until December 31, 2017. Let’s unleash some love and help them kick off the new year right!

#LovePup Family Fest with iHeart Radio!

In September, we were proud to sponsor an adoption event called the LovePup Family Festival in partnership with the LovePup Foundation and iHeart Radio. Taking place at Vertuccio Farms in Mesa, AZ. Paired with incredible music acts, food trucks, kid-friendly activities and more, the primary event focus of pet adoption was a huge success. With more than XXXX folks came out to enjoy the evening, and XX rescues on-site with adorable, adoptable dogs from across the Phoenix metro area, more than XX pups were adopted and found their forever homes!

As our way of saying thank you for adopting these wonderful canine companions, AZ Pet Vet provided the new owners with a certificate for a Free Wellness Exam and Fecal Test. We know that routine health and wellness checkups are just as important to our pets as they are to us humans, and wanted to help these new owners ensure that the newest member of their family was receiving first rate care!

We are thrilled by the impact the event had on the community, and look forward to participating again in the future!
