Little River County 4-H and Ashdown Vet Clinic teamed up again for their Annual Rabies Clinics to help lower the cases of rabies in the area. The first clinic was held on April 10 at the fairgrounds in Foreman and the second, which is usually held at Tractor Supply, was moved to the Vet Clinic because of the bad weather.

The clinics offered rabies and other yearly shots for cats and dogs at a reduced price. Dr. Martin also allowed people to make an appointment at the vet’s office during the week of the 4-H clinics for the same discounted price.

Little River County 4-H’ers and 4-H agent Bethany Barney assisted with the clinics by filling out paperwork, helping owners with their animals, and assisting the vet. Over 40 animals were vaccinated at these clinics. For every animal that came to either of the Rabies Clinics or to the Ashdown Vet Clinic that week, Dr. Martin made a donation to the local 4-H Program.
