Claws & Paws is very active in the Pearland, and surrounding areas, communities. We can be found at the City of Pearland’s Paws in the Park in March, Picnic on the Parkway in August, Trick or Treat Trail in October, and participating in the Hometown Christmas Festival in December. We regularly have press releases and short helpful articles in the Pearland/Friendswood Journal and provide free educational videos and seminars to the community.
When other communities have a need, such as West, Texas and Moore, Oklahoma disasters, we team up with the other veterinarians in the community to provide any kind of relief we are able to provide. We accepted donations from the community for Moore, OK and the supplies were driven to their community for assistance. With the incident in West, TX, the supplies were collected and driven to West by one of the staff members at Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital.
In addition to these things, our doctors and staff help out at the St. Andrews Episcopal Church, when they have their Bless the Pet event as well as doctor’s participating in career days at other local elementary schools in the Pearland ISD.
We also constantly work on educational materials at Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital to help educate the community at large. Some of our on-going projects include:
Free “Firemen, Save Our Pets” stickers. If you would like one of these, you can stop by our facility to pick one up. We suggest you place one sticker on each entrance to your home.
Note: We did have an issue with a previous batch and the image may have faded. We have replaced this with a new batch that will not fade (they are UV coated). Please come get another one, if you got one from our bad batch.
Should a fire or other emergency occur in you home when you are not there, firemen or other rescue personnel will know not only how many pets are in your home, but will also know where to take your pets once they save them. During regular business hours they will go to Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital, and during overnight, weekend and holiday hours they will go to 288 Animal Emergency Clinic.
We think this is a great opportunity to give back to the community. These stickers are available for free at Claws & Paws and at the 288 Animal Emergency Clinic. Stop by and get yours today.
Free Live Seminars on a variety of subjects, including:
- End of Life Choices
- New Puppies & Kittens
- Pet First Aid & CPR
- Can you teach an old dog new tricks
- What breed is the right one for your family?
Video created by the staff at Claws & Paws that are uploaded to our YouTube account. These are created about every-other month and include a variety of topics:
- The Complete Veterinary Physical Exam
- The Importance of Good Dental Health
- Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention of Heartworm Disease
- How to Properly Clean Your Pet’s Ears
The staff creates and publishes their own Client Handouts to ensure the information received from Claws & Paws is the information the doctors and staff at Claws & Paws believe is the most important for our clients to have.
This is an ongoing project and we will continue to work on developing these as we move forward. Please feel free to share any of these with your friends and family either via email or by printing them and sharing. Click on the image to the left to see the variety of Client Handouts available to view and print.
If you would like for us to participate at one of your events, or have a community project we can contribute to, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a time and location of the event, what it benefits and contact information. One of our staff members will contact you to discuss the event and to see what we are able to contribute. As a staff, we enjoy the community involvement and are always looking for ways to contribute.
