The Waldo County Humane Society Announces Free Rabies Clinics and an Opportunity to Support Local Pet Food Pantry

Frankfort, Maine -

FRANKFORT – The Waldo County Humane Society has announced that it will be hosting a series of rabies clinics in towns around Waldo County this fall. The first clinic will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16 at the Waldo Pierce Reading Room, 11A Main Road South (1A), Frankfort. Dr. Blake of Blake Veterinary Hospital will be the attending Veterinarian.
The rabies shot will be free to animals residing in Waldo County. Pets from other counties are welcome to come for their shots for a small fee. Please bring all animals on leashes or in portable pet carriers.
The October 16th clinic will also serve as a fundraising and awareness event for Miss Millie’s Cupboard, the Frankfort based food pantry for domestic companion animals. Miss Millie’s Cupboard was opened last March to help local families in need of assistance feeding their pets. “I kept hearing about people who needed to surrender their pets because they couldn’t afford to feed them. I knew I could to do something to help,” founder Reba Stewart remembers. “The need has been overwhelming. Times are hard, people are losing jobs, and whatever I can do to help pets stay with their families is a good thing.” To help support the pantry a bake and book sale (with books donated by Waldo Pierce Reading Room) will take place on the day of the clinic across the street in the parking lot at Frankfort Town office from 9am-2pm. Miss Millie’s Cupboard will be open from 12-2pm on that day. Donations of cat or dog food as well as any monetary donations would be gratefully accepted. Donations to Miss Millie’s Cupboard could also be mailed to: MMC, 67 West Hill Road, Frankfort, Maine, 04438. Starting in November, Miss Millie’s Cupboard will be open the last Saturday of each month from 12-2pm above Frankfort Town Office for those in need of food for their pets. For more information about Miss Millie’s Cupboard call Reba at 223-4334.
Additional WCHS Rabies Clinics are planned for October 30th 9-11am at Freedom Town Office, and November 13th from 9-11am at Brooks Fire Station. In addition to the rabies shot, coupon discounts towards the cost of having your pet spayed or neutered can be picked up at any Waldo County Humane Society Rabies Clinic, and used at your local vet.
