Dr. Wayne Watkins DVM, left, and members of his staff, veterinarian assistant Chase Beebe; Chase's daughter, 12-year-old Cassiddy Beebe; and veterinarian technician Anna Russell hold the flag of appreciation presented to Red Willow Animal Clinic of McCook, Nebraska, by the Oglala Lakota Nation (Oglala Sioux Tribe OST) Tribal Council of the Medicine Root District of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. During a two-day spay and neuter clinic at Kyle, South Dakota, last summer, Dr. Watkins, Chase, Cassiddy, Anna and Dr. Watkins' daughter, Brianna, who is a pre-veterinary medicine student at Fort Hays, Kansas, State University, spayed and neutered 68 dogs and cats free of charge for pet owners on the reservation. Pet owners also sent gifts decorated with symbols of the tribe -- hand-crafted earrings for Cassiddy and Anna and a quilt for Brianna.
