CCVH Gives Back to Strengthen & Enrich Our Community
We make sure that 10% of all proceeds from Center City Veterinary Hospital go to the following charitable resources helping to strengthen our community:
PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the city’s largest no-kill shelter and operates two high-volume, low-cost clinics serving pet owners and rescue organizations that lack access to affordable basic veterinary care.
Our primary mission is to connect Philadelphia runners with homeless dogs as running companions. We provide ongoing support for the animal shelters through sponsored adoption events and running adventures for the homeless dogs as they wait for their forever homes.
Feeding Pets of the Homeless also known as Pets of the Homeless is a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinary care to the homeless in local communities across the United States and Canada.
The Friendship Circle lets children and teens with special needs enjoy many of the social and recreational opportunities afforded to the community at large. We also provide a way for teenagers to offer respite and friendship to children and their families.
The Scoop The Poop team decided to provide dog waste stations with plastic bag dispensers and a can. They wanted something functional, fairly discrete, inexpensive and urban-looking. Inspiration came from a lightweight, ribbed plastic-like material spotted at a construction site. Janet Kalter found a New Jersey distributer of the stuff. Her life partner, Joe Schiavo, enjoys a bit of industrial engineering, so he designed the bag dispensers and cans.
There are now about a dozen complete stations hanging on poles around Old City and the program has been expanded to provide stations to other neighborhoods as well.
At the midpoint on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway between City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Sister Cities Park adds a picturesque swath of green to the heart of Philadelphia's notable arts and cultural district. From here, panoramic views bring skyscrapers, historic cathedrals and museums into harmony, while the Sister Cities fountain, a unique representation of the world with Philadelphia at its center, is close enough for adults to touch and children (and dogs) to run through. The fountain’s 10 geyser-like spouts mark our 10 sister cities, each positioned according to its global relationship to Philadelphia.
Here at Center City Veterinary Hospital, we are very fortunate to have such incredible patients and clients. Each month, our staff will enter pets’ names into a bag whenever they come across an exceptional well-behaved or mighty brave pet that was a true superstar during their visit. At the end of each month we will randomly draw one of the superstar patients’ names and award them as the following month’s “Pet of the Month”! Pets of the month are featured on our photo wall as well as our facebook page.
Artist of the Month- First Friday
During the warmer weather months, CCVH invites local artist clients to showcase their work at the hospital during Old City's First Friday monthly event. We also provide food and beverages to enhance the festivities. Former sponsors have included Starr Restaurants, Wyerbacher Brewery, The Pet Snobs Boutique, O'Neal's Pub, and 4 Fathers.
