On a hot, quiet, early Saturday morning in June, the parking lot of the Robbins Elementary School stirred with a flurry of activity. Signs were placed at the entrance to the parking lot, pop-up tents and tables were strategically positioned.

Clipboards and forms, coloring books and crayons for the kids, bags of dog and cat food were piled onto tables. A “rabies station” was established under the overhang of the school building, complete with vaccinations, supplies, forms and tags. A mobile unit, generously loaned by the Sandhills Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic, pulled into place to provide a temporary air-conditioned office for the vet.
