Squad members will be at their building on High St. from 6 to 9 p.m. every Wednesday and Thursday for drop-offs of items in good condition. To make other arrangements, call Sally Wallace at 623-4730.
The auction starts at 2 p.m. on May 12, and we hear that many valuable items are now lined up for the event.
Rabies vaccines offered for pets
Warren County Public Health will be holding a Rabies Clinic from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday May 11 at the Warren County Public Works headquarters at 4055 Main St. in Warrensburg.
Pets must be three months old to receive their first immunization, which will afford them protection for one year. The next shot, a booster, will offer protection for three years, and is required one year after the first shot was administered. From then on, every three years a booster should be given to protect one’s pet. Both initial and booster shots will be given at all clinics scheduled by Warren County Public Health.
A $10 donation is requested for each pet. No one is turned away due to financial hardship. Bring dogs on leashes and cats or ferrets in carriers. For details, call Warren County Public Health at 761-6580.
