Community Involvement

Courtwright_and_Bak.JPGThe staff of Heartland Veterinary Hospital prides itself on being active within the community. They are committed to creating an environment that provides only the best for all of its citizens, including those with four legs. Some of the most recent activities include:

• Bi-monthly educational radio broadcast by Dr. Rowland on the Charlie Perry Morning Show on 1230AM WHIR (Every other Wednesday morning at 8:15) 
•  Participation in the United Way "Day of Caring" 
• Annual Christmas Party and gift donation to the senior citizens of Arnold Tower 
• Visits and sharing companionship of our favorite pets with the residents of McDowell Place 
• Partnership with Danville-Boyle County Health Department to provide rabies vaccinations to the community 
• Heartland Super Bowl annual collection of dog and cat food to donate to the humane society 
• Backpack Project in 2009 to provide food to needy school children of the community

The staff of Heartland Veterinary Hospital is also very active in educating the younger members of our society about the animals that live in their community. By visiting the Child Development Center, Sunrise Children's Home, A Children's Place and the local elementary schools, a hands-on approach is used to teach young people how to care for pets. The "yuck" box, radiographs, and x-rays provide visual explanations of some of the more common diseases pets encounter.
