The clinic is sponsored by the Dallas County 4-H program and the Fordyce Animal Clinic. The vaccinations are for cats and dogs only, and will cost $8 per animal. 

Keith Gresham, Dallas County Cooperative Extension Service staff chair, said the Rabies Clinic is an annual event that Extension provides to the citizens of Dallas County and surrounding areas. 

“With the increase in the cases of rabies in Arkansas it is very important that people have their cats and dogs vaccinated,” Gresham said.
