Citizen of the Week
This week's COW is Debbie Weiland. Her nominator praised her as an "animal lover." An employee of the Berryville Veterinary Clinic for the past decade, she and two co-workers used their air miles and supporter contributions to travel as Carroll County Veterinarians Without Borders for a one-week stay in the tiny village of Hopkins, Belize, last February, where they spayed and neutered more than 50 pets and performed other surgical procedures. Her nominator pointed out that Debbie loves all animals, not just dogs and cats. "At times, she brings animals home to assist in their recovery and she is currently caring for an epileptic cat which needs daily shots."
