Three Cheers for Animals
Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospitals (TVRH) are proud to announce Dr. Grafinger recently helped Troop 951 of Durham earn their Three Cheers for Animals badge. The budding Daisy scouts asked tons of questions about veterinary medicine and took an extensive tour of the Durham hospital.
TVRH loves helping the community and values others. If we can help your organization learn more about veterinary medicine, please click here.
Dog Day in the Park
Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospitals (TVRH) along with the town of Holly Springs hosted another successful Dog Day in the Park, a pet friendly event geared towards animals and their owners. The celebration featured trick dogs, canine first aid, food, music and plenty of contests for our furry friends such as Cutest, Ugliest, Best Talent, Best Costume as well as Dog and Owner Lookalike. In addition to these options, participants learned more about local businesses centered on pets and met dogs up for adoption! This was Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospital’s third year sponsoring the public event.
Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts
Thanks to people in and around the Raleigh/ Durham area, Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospitals (TVRH) were able to greatly help the animal and human evacuees of Houston.
Due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, many animals were injured or displaced providing a huge strain on veterinary care in Southeast Texas. Since TVRH, prides itself in providing the next level of care, our staff members did everything they could to provide it from afar by gathering the following supplies:
- Cat Litter- clumping preferred
- Martingale Collars-size medium
- Dog Treats
- Paper or Styrofoam Bowls
- Kitten and Puppy Formula
- Flea and Tick Preventative
- Canned Wet Food
- Litter Boxes
- Large Metal Dog Bowls
- Large Trash Bags
- Cleaning Supplies- bleach, paper towels, sponges, dish soap, latex gloves, general purpose cleaner
Thanks to the overwhelming amount of donations at both locations (608 Morreene Road, Durham, NC; 2120 Werrington Drive, Holly Springs, NC), Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospitalswere able to fill a giant truck and transport it to Texas, courtesy of God's Pit Crew. In addition to the animal supplies, TVRH also raised money for the people! Triangle sent a major monetary donation to the Houston Food Bank.

We’re known in and around the Triangle for providing the next level of veterinary care in emergency and specialty services for small animals. Today, however, we decided to add a little human to our routine care. Earlier, our hospitals presented four-year-old Eliana Deane and her mother Tara, a monetary donation large enough to meet the remaining balance of their GoFundMe account, which the Deane’s created to purchase a therapy dog. Eliana has low-functioning autism and her family members believe a service dog trained specifically to aid individuals with the disorder will increase her quality of life. In addition to the monetary donation, TVRH is also providing three years of Emergency and Specialty care, free of charge, to the Deane family and their future, service dog, Butters.
Butters, a Briard puppy, is believed to possess strong protective instincts which will meet Eliana’s special needs. According to Ry-Con Service Dogs founder, Mark Mathis, Butters will be an excellent fit for Eliana. Butters is expected to join the Deane family officially this summer!
