Community Involvement

Community involvement is an important part of R.E.A.C.H. Look for us at local animal events and for open houses, classes and other exciting things at our hospital. We care about animals and the people who love them and are committed to education so that animals may be better cared for.  

We are also concerned about energy conservation, climate change, and our own impact on the environment.In October 2015, Sugar Hollow Solar installed solar panels on our roof.  The process took a few weeks, and now we're looking forward to the benefits of using renewable energy, both in our power bill and in reducing our footprint on the environment. Over time, R.E.A.C.H. and anyone who switches to solar energy can save thousands of dollars in energy costs.  The energy saved will be the equivalent of 244 tons of CO2 and 30.8 acres of carbon absorbing forest over the lifetime of the panels. We are excited to make this move toward renewable energy.  You are welcome to come by and see the panels and ask us about our experience.

The Regional Emergency Animal Care Hospital’s concern for animals extends beyond the walls of our hospital.   We have a connection with all living things. We value the very special bond that we share with our animal companions and we strive to improve the lives of all pets. We also recognize the importance of a healthy natural environment and the need to be good stewards of the earth. Our hospital supports groups in the community who share our passion.  Our hospital provides financial support to the following organizations in our community in hopes that far more can be accomplished together:

REACH is proud to be a community partner with the North Carolina Arboretum. The arboretum does a wonderful job of educating and sharing with us the beauty of our natural environment.In addition, it is a convenient and spectacular place to nurture that special bond with our companions.
