Cahoon’s Veterinary Externship Program
We are happy to team up with Cahoon Elementary Magnet School of Animal Science and Gifted and Talent Development to give the opportunity to authentically engage students in real-world experiences directly connected to Animal Science! This is the start of a series of “behind the scenes” visits to our Veterinary Hospitals; sponsored by TampaBayVets.net, where students observe veterinarians and technicians providing medical care for patients.
We are excited to build another great community partnership that supports School Improvement Goal to increase student engagement through differentiated instructional strategies that involves all stakeholders; students, parents, and community partners!
New Tampa Rotary Dog Park
We are a proud sponsor of the New Tampa Rotary Dog Park. This new amenity, designed by the City of Tampa, will be built at New Tampa Community Park in the heart of New Tampa.The location is next door to New Tampa’s busy recreation center and skate park, and less than 1/4 mile from Freedom High and Liberty Middle schools on Commerce Park Boulevard. The dog park will feature mature shade trees and grass surrounded by a chain link fence with facilities for pet drinking water and waste disposal. Small dogs will enjoy a separate fenced section.
UPDATE: We are delighted to announce that the groundbreaking by the City of Tampa and the Rotary Club of New Tampa will take place on Monday March 2, 2015 at 11:00 am at the dog park site on Commerce Park Blvd next to the New Tampa Rec Center. We will send out more information on the Grand Opening closer to that date. Also please watch for announcements in the local print media and on our website at www.newtamparotary.org and, of course, on Facebook.
We are very excited about this news and we deeply appreciate those in the community who have followed up with us by email. We are extremely pleased by the community interest in the New Tampa Rotary Dog Park and we are thrilled to share this news with you all.

The Veterinary Care Foundation
The Veterinary Care Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable foundation created to assist veterinarians in providing no-cost or discounted care to animals in need.
As committed pet owners, many of us fail to realize that each year veterinarians donate considerable time and resources providing low or no-cost care to abandoned pets and to pets whose owners may be experiencing financial hardship.
Because Foundation operating expenses are funded through veterinarian membership fees, 100% of every dollar donated to the Veterinary Care Foundation is used to provide veterinary care for pets.
To make your tax deductible donation, please click here.
Ask us about our Adoption Program. We recycle many homeless pets that wind up on our doorstep. We examine, test, vaccinate and spay or neuter these pets and put them up for adoption. If you are looking for a new companion, let us know!
Labrador Retriever Rescue
Looking for a new pet? We work hand-in-hand with the Lab Rescue of Florida. While we provide ‘at cost’ veterinary care for this and several other rescue groups, we support their mission and feel confident that you will be pleased to ‘rescue’ one of these beautiful dogs!
