People Helping Pets

Sunday, December 9, 2012

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.

For the last two Decembers, clients responded by donating generously.

"We'd love to see even more this year," Mobley said.

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.
