City rabies clinic draws 101


To The Editor:

The rabies clinic conducted at the Ogdensburg Fire Department and supported by the city of Ogdensburg vaccinated 101 cats and dogs from Ogdensburg and the surrounding communities Wednesday evening. Animal caregivers did an excellent job managing their pets.

Like any activity, it required assistance from a variety of sources. The St. Lawrence County Public Health Department provided the vaccines, tags and certificates. Dr. Joanna Kinglsey, D.V.M., and Jasmine Harper, L.V.T., of Town and Country Veterinary Clinic, administered the vaccinations. Deb Mitchell, a St. Lawrence Valley Society for the Prevention of Cruelty volunteer, 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, Dawn Merna, and Tim Wright. The Ogdensburg Fire Department 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 Tractor Supply Manager Tammy Davis and Assistant Manager Cassie Adams brought “goodies” for the canine participants. Assistance to inform the public of the clinic came from Beth Lyons, Amanda Purcell and the staff of The Journal and Advance-News.

If you were unable to attend this clinic and your cat, dog or ferret are due for a rabies vaccination, visit the St. Lawrence Valley SPCA website ( and click on “Rabies Clinics” for future scheduled clinics.
