Chester Springs Veterinary Hospital Committed to Community Service

CHESTER SPRINGS, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2011) - Dr. David Matunis and Dr. Jennifer Granite of Eagle Animal Hospital in Chester Springs lead their staff in giving back to the community by supporting events in their area and in the surrounding communities of Exton and Downingtown. They believe in providing support for such community organizations as Pals for Life and the French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust because they help make the area a better place to live for both human and animal residents.

One activity the animal hospital supported this year was Bow Wow Bingo to benefit Pals for Life. This non-profit organization has provided companion animal programs to people who need them, pet visitation and humane education programs since 1985. The event included prizes, raffles, a Parade of Pals and Steven the Poodle pulling the bingo balls for his game.

Dr. Matunis also promotes the work of the French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust because it protects endangered land and natural resources in northern Chester County. These areas can be a natural habitat for many wildlife species. Preserving these watersheds means area residents and tourists will be able to enjoy beautiful scenery and learn about a wide variety of animals for many generations to come.

The practice also participated in the 7th Annual Mommy's Light Race For Traditions, which raised over $65,000. This race provides funding for the Mommy's Light Tradition Fulfillment program, which supports hundreds of children, teens and their families in continuing loved ones' cherished traditions, once a year, each year until the child turns 18 years old.

Other events included exhibiting at the Chester County Chamber of Business Expo, participating in the Upper Uwchlan Township's 3rd Annual Block Party, and supporting a Community Dog Wash to benefit Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals and S.T.A.R. (Second Time Around Rescue).

Commenting on their community involvement, Dr. Matunis said, "My main interest as a Chester Springs veterinarian is pet wellness. We offer services at our veterinary clinic that keep pets in top health. But I also want to make sure that our community, Exton, Downingtown and other local areas are great places to live for both people and animals. Our motto is 'Treating Your Pets with the Knowledge and Compassion They Deserve.' We try to live up to that standard for our neighbors and community as well."

Doctors Matunis and Granite acquired the veterinary clinic in 2008 and now provide a wide range of pet services including vaccinations, spay and neuter procedures, annual check-ups and advanced medical and surgical care. Another way the veterinarians help make Exton, Downingtown and other local communities safer for pets is by providing a wealth of pet care and health information on the practice's website.
