The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Like a Swiss Army knife of pet care, Heart of Dixie Veterinary Clinic is many different things in one, including a vet, a kennel, and a groomer. No matter the service they choose, though, customers will always discover the same thing—the trained veterinary staff's unending love of animals. These passionate experts ensure cats and dogs stay healthy through vaccinations, dental care, x-rays, and other vet services. They also keep an eye of furry family members during day and overnight boarding visits, as well as work alongside local company Kritter Sitters to offer baths, brushes, and many other grooming options.
At Saraland Veterinary Clinic, a nimble staff attends to the health of families' furry and feathered companions. They can run lab tests such as bloodwork in-house, vaccinate pets against diseases such as rabies and cooties, or bathe and groom animals. When their owners go on vacation or have the house swept of years' worth of hidden bones, the clinic's team provides boarding for pets. They're also experienced in the care and health of small and exotic animals such as reptiles and birds.
In 1981, B&B Pet Stop paired pet owners with furry friends and items to care for them from a 600-square-foot location. Since then, the store has expanded to 24 times its original size—B&B now fills every nook and cranny of a massive 14,400-square-foot store. But one thing hasn’t changed; it’s still run by Bill Trufant and his sisters Sally and Mary. The trio’s pet emporium stocks everything from Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals cat and dog food and Nylabone chew toys to cages and vitamins for birds.
The Trufants and their dedicated staff don’t just equip pet owners with supplies; they also supply the pets themselves, hosting so many critters that children take field trips to the shop the way they might visit a zoo. More than 2,600 gallons of salt water aquariums include a live coral system and a reef display, creating a home for saltwater swimmers, such as pygmy angelfish and crabs. Nearby, red-tail sharks, firemouth cichlids, and other creatures frolic in more than 6,000 gallons of fresh water. The shop also sells more than 800 reptiles and more than 12,000 small animals each year, as well as a fleet of birds. For particularly dedicated caregivers, a selection of rarer, more high-maintenance animals is available, including hedgehogs, which demand a homemade cake thrice a day.
B&B Pet Stop’s dedication to animals extends to community-outreach initiatives. For instance, you have the option to round up your purchase price, donating the change to monthly rotating charities, including Animal Rescue Foundation and the Mobile Arts Council. This idea has raised nearly $100,000 in just five years.
