Fredonia pets get TLC
Fredonia’s pet population received some extra love and attention January 17, at the Fredonia Pet Shot Clinic. Brought to the town through the joint partnership of the Fredonia Humane Society and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the clinic offered something for almost every pet owner.
Shots were the primary focus, with $5.00 rabies, $10 combos and even $10 microchips.
Tom Corrigan, town manager, emphasized the importance of the combo shot. “Rabies is required by law, but we haven’t had a dog or cat infected by rabies in over 30 years. However, every year we have 20-30 dogs die of parvo. So the rabies shot is required by law, but the combo shot is the key to good health for your dogs.”
In addition to shots, pets could be treated to nail clipping, or test their skills at the agility course. Toys and treats, collars and leashes were also available. Even some of the biggest pets weren’t left out of the day with Best Friends’ horse specialist available handing out free worming for horses.
The day was a huge success with a great turnout. Best of all, was the guests of honor left a little healthier and better protected.
