Special to The Sun

EDMOND — Pet Medical Center of Edmond had its fourth annual Pet Health Fair on Sept. 21.

This event is a free community service event focusing the center’s efforts on raising money for Paws for Life, the nonprofit organization supporting Edmond Animal Welfare. The funds raised help supply vaccinations, food and supplies to the shelter and helps with general care of the pets.

This is the third year that Pet Medical Center’s event has benefited Paws for Life.

“Each year we set our goal a little higher and each year the community and local businesses seem to get more and more involved. Their involvement and donations are what help this event be such a success,” said Beth Burney, practice manager.

This year’s event was a success in raising $4,025 for Paws for Life.

“We want to thank all who donated to the auction and raffle, as well as those attendees who came out to support us. This event would not be possible without all of you,” Burney said.

Several local businesses, vendors and rescues had booths at the event.
