SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. - Sullivan County is trying to keep its pet population healthy.
Pet owners lined up on Thursday evening to get their dogs and cats rabies shots.
The Tennessee Department of Health held thirteen rabies clinics across the county.
We're told it's important to vaccinate your pets because rabies is regularly found in Sullivan County.
The vaccinations cost pet owners just $10.
"A lot of people in the community have a little trouble getting their pets to the veterinary clinic in a timely manner and it just kind of helps if we go out into the community and try to help them be more accessible," said Dr. Shean Hobbes, with the Family Veterinary Clinic.
If you missed the clinics, the health department says there will be another chance in the fall.
