Recently, the Celeste FFA Booster Club
joined our local RADAR Rescue team to offer a low cost microchip, dog wash, and
vaccination clinic. The low cost micro-chip is a great way identify your
pet if it is ever lost or stolen. Proceeds that the FFA Booster Club
raised will be used to support and recognize all FFA students in many ways, some
of which include attendance at state and national conventions, scholarships, and
money for various AG projects to mention a few.
Janice and Ron Weldon and Rhonda Bender formed the RADAR organization after they participated in animal rescue operations following Hurricane Katrina. Radar is one of the dogs that they rescued and adopted after Hurricane Katrina. The group decided to form RADAR after they saw the shortage of professionally trained and skilled animal rescuers. Monies received from fundraisers such as this goes toward enabling the team to be available to continue receiving training and respond to animals in need during natural disasters. Radar attended the micro-chip clinic. The clinic was held at the Greenville Cavenderís . The Celeste FFA Booster Club plans to hold another clinic in the spring.
