Community Outreach

Community participation has always been and continues to be very important to us.

We feel strongly that the partnerships we nurture with various organizations in the community are an extension of our mission to treat and care for animals who are in need of specialized and emergency care.

We have on-going relationship with local law enforcement to give discounted services for police dogs. We also provide reduced rate services for military and other working dogs, animals at the SPCA of Wake County and local museums.

VSH and the North Carolina Zoo collaborate to provide specialty veterinary surgeries and procedures for zoo animals.  Over the years, VSH has performed surgery on a variety of zoo animals including elephants, gorillas, wart hogs, lions, kangaroos, goats, polar bears and a trumpeter hornbill.   Trumpeter hornbill prepped for surgery.
