Top-notch food

Pharmacist Renate Winkler, centre, presented Fort Frances bylaw enforcement officers Arlene Byrnes and Patrick Briere with a donation of Orijen dog food for the town’s dog pound on Friday at Pharmasave. The all-natural dog food is high-protein, low-carbohydrate, and grain-free, and is beneficial for all pets, especially those with health issues.
