The recent discovery of two rabid skunks in Haskell is something officials are taking seriously, said Mayor Jeff Arey.
"Because of this, we're encouraging people to get their pets vaccinated against rabies," he said. "Previously we've partnered with the Humane Society to hold rabies clinics, but we're putting more emphasis on this year's clinic."
The drive-through, low-cost clinic is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, on the parking lot of Harmony Grove High School, 2621 Arkansas 229 in Haskell.
