The Fayette Regional Humane Society (FRHS) took their Care Program on the road for the first time at The Village Court Apartments on Monday morning.
The Care Program helps low-income qualifying families with basic healthcare for their pets at no charge. FRHS will provide the pet with vaccinations, flea treatments, deworming and treatments of minor medical conditions, such as ear infections.
“We understand that not every pet owner is able to provide healthcare like vaccines to their pet, so that is where our Care Program helps,” said Brad Adams, outreach director for FRHS.
Funding for the new care program is through the generosity of a donor who wanted pets to receive medical care, regardless if the pet owner is unable to financially afford it.
The hardworking FRHS staff vaccinated nearly 40 pets for the residents at The Village Court Apartments during the Monday care program clinic. Pets that weren’t spayed or neutered were also scheduled through the FRHS clinic on Wednesday to be altered at no charge.

The Fayette Regional Humane Society is a non-profit (501(c)(3), volunteer organization. They receive less than 2 percent of their support from governmental organizations and therefore must rely on donations, grants and fundraising to carry out their mission. The Humane Society is the only organization in Fayette County able to respond to calls about abused, neglected and injured domestic animals, 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
