This year has been a tumultuous year for the United States. Things like politics, foreign relations, and health care have been the top concern for most of us. Those are all things that we as a nation have to manage by being active citizens of our country. But when we are blindsided, especially when it is by mother nature, we have the obligation to be there to lend a hand to those who need us the most.

These kids will be involved in the practice’s initiative to teach community children about animal health and wellness and encourage careers in veterinary medicine at an early age.

Brook Farm Veterinary Center of Patterson announced last week that they will be launching a new recycling initiative. The program encourages members of the community to bring their recyclables to the Brook Farm office, so that they may be redeemed and proceeds donated to the Farm Fund.
