Rabies clinic was a success


To The Editor:

The rabies clinic recently conducted at the Ogdensburg Fire Department and sponsored by the City of Ogdensburg vaccinated 140 cats and dogs from Ogdensburg and surrounding communities. Animal caregivers did an excellent job in managing their pets.

Like any activity it required assistance from a variety of sources. The St. Lawrence County Public Health Department provided the vaccine, tags, and certificates.Dr. John “Jack” Zeh, D.V.M., and Laurie Beggs, L.V.T., of Town and Country Veterinary Clinic administered the vaccinations. Deb Mitchell, a St. Lawrence Valley Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animalsvolunteer, also served as the city of Ogdensburg representative and provided vaccination documentation to all participants. Other volunteers from the St. Lawrence Valley SPCA registered all participants on their arrival at the event:Ingrid Baltradis, Karen Cunningham, Joanne Denny, Lee Hansen, Dawn Merna, Jennifer Stevenson, and Tim Wright. Ogdensburg Fire Chief Michael Farrell and his firefighters provided a site for the clinic and set up and removed the tables and chairs.

An information table was provided by Spay/Neuter/Now represented by Kevin Mace and Bea Schermerhorn.Assistance to inform the public of the clinic came from the staff of The Journal and Advance-News, North Country Now, 102.9, and WWNY-TV.
