Over the past 10 years, F.R.A.S. has been addressing the many animal needs within our community. Seven years ago, F.R.A.S. was graciously allowed space within the new Rhinelander Area Food Pantry to manage and supply a pet food section. This opened up new ways to help needy pets such as emergency food, spay/neuter assistance and I.D. tags. One important item remained, and that was vaccines.
We were given the opportunity to fulfill that need by the Oneida County Humane Society. On April 28, at the animal shelter shot clinic, 94 shots were administered to food pantry pets. Amazing what can happen when we join hands in a common cause!
Thanks to the Oneida County Humane Society, Dr. Scott A. McKay, DVM, animal shelter employees, volunteers and anyone else who helped make this event a big success. God Bless all of you.
