Fairmont Fitness Hosts 'Furry Fan Day'

Posted: Updated:

Fairmont Fitness hosted its annual "Furry Fan Day" to help family pets and animals in need of a good home.

Dr. Aaron Pollack was on hand to give more than 40 dogs and cats their rabies and distemper shots, and their owners could work out for free by giving a donation to the Marion County Humane Society.

"It's just such a great cause, and they need all the help they can get," said Randy Murray, co-owner of Fairmont Fitness.

Murray said owns two dogs himself. He said the event is all about the animals.

"You know, you want to take care of your dogs. They need medical help, just like everyone else, and of course, they can't go out and get it themselves. So this is a place for people to meet, we have a lot of members here and a lot of animal lovers, so it's been nice for them that they can help out," said Murray.

The fitness center also collected food, toys, treats, blankets, and other supplies from its members to be donated to the humane society.

It held its Aerobathon last weekend, and raised more than $500. Organizers were hoping to top that number this weekend.
