Celebrities Help Pets of The Community

A dog and his owner discuss the vaccine process during the Celebrities Pet Clinic on Nov. 6. The dance team, with help from parent volunteers, held their annual clinic at Cedar Park this year and served pet owners from all over the community.“My favorite part about helping out was seeing the Celebrities in action as they pretty much ran the whole event,” volunteer and parent Kelly Richardson said. “Dr. and Mrs. Tarlton even commented about how helpful and professional our girls were, and they work with lots of organizations to do these clinics.”

From dogs lined up on the sidewalk barking, to cats meowing in kennels, the Celebrities attracted all types of pet owners to the high school during their annual pet clinic on Nov.6, where both dancers and parents offered people from around the community discounted vaccines for their animals. Sophomore and Celebrity line member Anna Clark helped to move the line and get people the information they needed before going inside. 

“I just love talking to people,” Clark said. “So it was really fun for me to interact with some pet owners, while also serving my community and my team.”

With the help of Dr. and Mrs. Tarlton from Austin Avenue Animal Hospital in Georgetown, the team raised over two thousand dollars, surpassing last years profit. The money goes directly back to the team for trips, new costumes, competition, and any other costs. 

“My favorite part about helping out was seeing the Celebrities in action as they pretty much ran the whole event,” volunteer and parent Kelly Richardson said. “Dr. and Mrs. Tralton even commented about how helpful and professional our girls were, and they work with lots of organizations to do these clinics.”

"Pet photos were great," Walter said. "We got some good photos of my dog and we’re glad it’s being offered.”

In addition to giving vaccinations, the team added another option to the two hour clinic: pet photos with team photographer Danielle Walker. Multiple people decided to get photos with Walker, as they were free to take in the gym and if costumers were happy with the results they could pay for the photos online.

“I thought the pet photos were an awesome addition to the Celebrities pet clinic,” Richardson said. “Danielle Walker takes amazing photographs and these pet portraits will be treasured for years to come.”

The clinic was advertised on many platforms including flyers at the Cedar Bark Festival, PeachJar, social media, word of mouth, signs around Cedar Park, and Nextdoor. Many people were returning customers from previous years and mentioned that the people volunteering were nice and the experience was relaxed. 

“It was very great,” sophomore and customer Lucy Walter said. “My dog behaved well and the people working were very nice and helped us along. Pet photos were great. We got some good photos of my dog and we’re glad it’s being offered.”
