Countryside Pet Hospital joins Small Businesses Love Big


May 4, 2023

Countryside Pet Hospital recently joined the Catawba County United Way's Small Businesses Love Big initiative. 

This is an opportunity for small companies in Catawba County (50 employees or less) to invest back into their communities by supporting local non-profit programs.

"When we started this outreach late 2022, we were not sure how, or even if, it would be received and now we are gearing up for our first Small Businesses Love Big grant cycle,” CCUW Executive Director Mark Bumgarner said.

Each participating company contributes $365 a year, which will be used to fund this new Catawba County United Way allocation process focused on local small and start-up non-profits.

Representatives of the businesses will meet to review the grant applications and decide what programs to fund.
