Happy New Woof!


Once again this year, Schuylkill Veterinary Hospital is celebrating the military working dogs that play a vital role in our armed services. Throughout the month of January, the hospital is collecting items ranging from toys to treats for these dogs. MWDs  work side by side with soldiers  in the field.  These highly trained dogs excel in areas  that may include explosive detection,  search and rescue, and protection. These dogs are valued resources that deserve respect and honor.

The “Happy New Woof” program will provide care packages for  military working dogs. Schuylkill County residents may bring toys, treats, Kongs, brushes, nylon or leather collars and leashes, booties or canine cooling vests to the hospital on Route 61 south of Pottsville. Monetary donations will also be accepted to put toward these items. We were able to send a large stash of goodies last year  and we want to send even more this year!
