Many helped with rabies clinic

On Saturday, April 1, the Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association, in conjunction with the Humane Society of Jamestown and the town of Jamestown, sponsored a low-cost rabies clinic at the Jamestown Fire Station.

These clinics are held around the state during the spring to allow pet owners easy access to rabies inoculations for their animals. Veterinarians donate their time to these clinics in an effort to ensure the protection of as many animals as possible against rabies.

Our Jamestown clinic was successful in large part because of the volunteers from the Jamestown Humane Society who helped ensure smooth processing of paperwork and assisted pet owners at the clinic. The clinic provided nearly 100 rabies vaccinations to local animals.

Thank-you to all the folks who attended the clinic so their pets would be protected against rabies, to Animal Control Officer Cathy Gregory, employees of the town of Jamestown, and the many volunteers from the Humane Society of Jamestown who helped on Saturday.

We hope to see you back next year!

Dr. Jack Civic, Jamestown Animal
