The Free Rabies Clinic on Saturday was a huge success. Due to the high volume of residents, the time was extended until 1:00 p.m. Dr. Christine Caserta from the Blackwood Animal Hospital had vaccinated 162 pets.
Councilwoman Pat Passio greeted and handed out treats to all of the pets. She also helped to keep the whole procedure to run smoothly.
Eleanor Kelly, a member of the Runnemede Woman’s Club was collecting donations for the Animal Welfare Association. AWA is located in Voorhees and is a no kill shelter. One of the donations came from a 6th grade student from Mary Volz School. The 6th grader donated $80.00 from her birthday money. In the envelope, the letter stated that she wanted to help the animals in need.
