Thanksgiving Food Drive Image

As I sit down to write this, and look at the calendar, it is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right on our doorstep! We all have many reasons to give thanks, and I am thankful for all of the wonderful folks who trust their pet's care to myself and our team at Tampa Veterinary Hospital. When I think about the joy that our pets bring us in our everyday lives, I must also stop to think about the charmed lives many of our pets have. Although they can not express themselves verbally, our pets are thankful to have loving and caring owners like you.

Hungry DogSadly, not all pets have the same charmed life. There are thousands of adoptable pets within Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties every day that are waiting and hoping for a loving home. Tampa Veterinary Hospital is proud to work closely with Lost Angels Animal Rescue in the care of many of their adoptable pets. Lost Angels is a not-for-profit organization which rescues pets from many facilities, where these pets likely face a grim future. These pets are then placed with a loving foster family until a permanent home can be found.

During this holiday season, Tampa Veterinary Hospital is collecting food and other pet-related items for donation to Lost Angels Animal Rescue. If you would care to help by donating pet food, pet carriers, leashes, collars, we welcome your donations at Tampa Veterinary Hospital. As a small token of our thanks, you will receive a $5.00 gift certificate good for your next visit.
