Officials from the Charleston Veterinary Referral Center (CVRC) recently launched a corporate partnership with Pet Helpers, a not-for-profit, no-kill shelter, adoption center, and spay and neuter clinic on James Island, South Carolina. 

The center will give the shelter financial backing, and will work with shelter staff to offer free emergency and specialized services to pets being cared for there. 

The CVRC is a longtime supporter of Pet Helpers. With the new partnership, animals at Pet Helpers will have even more of CVRC's resources available to them.

The Lowcountry is a great place for dog ownership, especially as we have many opportunities to spend quality time with our canine companions outdoors. Unfortunately, the tick populations in the U.S. are increasing, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As a result, we need to be more aware than ever of the serious diseases they carry and the ways to prevent them.  Click here to read full article.
