At this holiday time of year, we think about giving and receiving gifts, and about helping those in need. Kennett’s Humane Officer, Tena Petix, has been going above the call of duty in helping the animals in her care. Dr. Everett Mobley and Dr. Carol Brigance and the team at Kennett Veterinary Clinic are helping her help again this year with “The Fur-Ball Tree”, the pet’s version of an “angel tree”.
During the month of December, you can bring a donation for the shelter animals to Kennett Veterinary Clinic at 1704 Saint Francis Street on the west end of Kennett. Donations can be monetary, food, treats, towels, blankets, or pet-toys. When you bring in a donation, your name will go up on the The Fur-Ball Tree, and you will receive a $5.00 credit toward your own pet’s next examination at Kennett Veterinary Clinic.
Last year in December of 2010, clients responded by donating generously, and nine bags of pet food, twelve blankets, eighteen towels, a bushel of toys and treats, and $315.00 in cash were soon under the tree. We’d love to see even more this year.
So help the animals (and help your own pet) by bringing a donation to The Fur-Ball Tree at Kennett Veterinary Clinic, on Saint Francis St., on the west side of Kennett.
