Southern Pines Pet Care Team

West Southern Pines Pet Care Day, March 20, 2021

The PRC built on the experience gained at last year’s event and expanded the services offered at an event held on March 20th in the West Southern Pines neighborhood. 

At this event, as at the prior one, the PRC subsidized rabies vaccinations and teamed with a veterinarian who offered complete physical exams and additional vaccinations at a reduced cost.  Additionally, at this event, for each pet that was examined, the PRC donated a topical application of flea and tick medication to last one month.  The veterinary technicians showed the pet owners the correct way to apply the medication.

Dr Janice Baker and her team from the Veterinary Tactical Group (VTG), a mobile veterinary practice out of Vass, again enthusiastically teamed with the PRC for the event.

Participants were able to discuss their concerns with the veterinarian and were also able to talk with PRC volunteers about the availability of spay and neuter services.  Pet food was also distributed.

With our continual focus on prevention, these Pet Care Day events are a natural evolution for the PRC.  We give pet owners the information and access to resources they need to be responsible pet owners.  For the most part, people want to do the right thing but often need advice and sometimes help to get it done.

West Southern Pines Pet Care Day, December 5, 2020

In December, the Southern Pines Pet Care Team, lead by Barb Ross, built on the experience gained at the Robbins’ event held in November and included a veterinarian at a West Southern Pines event. 

The event was held in the parking lot of the Southern Pines Primary School.  The PRC subsidized rabies vaccinations and the veterinarian offered complete physical exams and additional vaccinations at a reduced cost.

Dr Janice Baker and veterinary technician, Trinity Maurer, from the Veterinary Tactical Group (VTG), a mobile veterinary practice out of Vass, enthusiastically teamed with the PRC for the event.    

Participants were able to discuss their concerns with the veterinarian and were also able to talk with PRC volunteers about the availability of spay and neuter services.  Pet food was also distributed.
