BCHS Representatives will be on hand with Wish Lists of items that the shelter is always in need of.

Spencer, Executive Director for BCHS. This year, all Tops stores in Bradford County are participating in the event. From November 6th to November 12th patrons can purchase items at any Tops store in Bradford County to donate to the animal shelter.

Photo: Hello there, I'm Mr. Butters. I'm very affectionate and I like everyone. I've heard the staff say I'm a real sweetheart. I'm not particularly playful - I'm just a mellow kind of guy. I get along with other cats and especially like a nice windowsill for napping and keeping an eye on what's going on around me. I'm about 2 years old am already neutered. I have a unique appearance due to my folded over ear. I am one of a kind! If you are looking for a nice, mellow buddy to keep you company, I'm your guy.

Fall Rabies Clinic Set

The Bradford County Humane Society and Athens Animal Hospital have once again teamed up to provide a low cost Rabies Clinic for the local community.

On Sat, October 15th from 10-Noon people may bring their leashed dogs or cats in crates to the Athens Township Building on the corner of Elmira and Herrick Ave. Patrons must also bring the pets' current rabies shot record.

The cost for the rabies vaccination is only $8.00.

"It is extremely important for animals to have a current rabies shot. Even if you think your cat is only an inside cat, or your dog would never come into contact with the rabies virus, you could be wrong. There has been some incidents of various wildlife being contaminated with rabies. The last thing you would want is to put your animals' life or your own life in danger, by your pet possibly contracting the rabies virus," states Jennifer L. Spencer, BCHS Executive Director.
