At The Drake Center, we are passionate about giving back. 

Our practice proudly participates in community events benefitting local organizations like Rancho Coastal Humane Society, Good Dog! Autism Companions and the FACE Foundation, as well as various schools, churches and community centers.

We are also active members of several local civic and professional organizations, such as the San Diego County Veterinary Medical Association (SDCVMA) and Encinitas Chamber of Commerce.

Over the years, we have donated time and resources to provide complimentary preventative care, including wellness exams, vaccines and flea control, to pets in need and raised funds to provide a facility service dog for local children with autism. In addition, The Drake Center holds its own community events and fundraisers, such as pet photos with Santa Claus, and donates all proceeds from these events back to community organizations.

These ventures have been such a rewarding experience for our team as we have had the incredible opportunity to witness the benefits of this work firsthand. Our clients are the kind of forever families we hope every shelter dog and cat will find, the pet owners who give and receive second chances thanks to financial aid organizations like FACE and the generous donors who made the unconditional love of a therapy dog a reality for several local families living with autism.

Our community is not just our place of business — it is our home. Thank you for helping us support the amazing organizations that make it such a wonderful place to live.
