It was a beautiful day for Wakefield’s annual rabies clinic. This year’s clinic raised over $900 for the Protection of Animals in Wakefield Society.

VCA donated the vaccines so that the full $10 fee benefited PAWS. VCA also provided nail trims in exchange for a minimum $5 donation.

This year, we also included microchipping for the first time. Plus, the manager from Best Friends Pet Care Kennel and Janet Rivers of Happy Dog Directory joined us in the parking lot with tables promoting their services and supporting PAWS.

Thanks to all the PAWS volunteers who helped make this day a success, including Pat DeVellis, Kathy Devlin, Sharlene Ford, Diane Hammerbeck, Elaine Leahy, Eleanor Mathews, Kay Regan, Christina Tomasic, and Chuck Willand.

And a very special thank you to Sarah Norton, Dr. Sam Simonelli, and all the VCA staff who made this fundraiser possible.
