Louisville – Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch is offering pet owners in District 13 an easy way to renew a license, get needed rabies shots or microchip their animal all in one place when she hosts the District 13 Low Cost Rabies Clinic on Saturday June 8th.
“This is a great way to get the summer off to a good start by protecting your pet and making sure your animal is properly licensed in Metro Louisville,” says Welch. “S.P.O.T. Clinics are easy, one stop shopping so to speak for a pet owner.”
The Clinic will also make micro-chipping available at a low cost.
The S.P.O.T. (Stop Pet Overpopulation Today) Mobile Clinic truck is scheduled on June 8th at Derby City Eagles #2173 (under the Dave Bassett Pavilion), 201 Outer Loop from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
The following services are provided:
License: $9.50 (altered pets)/ $50.50 (unaltered pets)*
Rabies: $8 (1 year)
*Senior citizens receive a discount on license fees
S.P.O.T. clinics are run by Metro Animal Services and bring veterinarian services to many areas allowing residents to get a pet a license and necessary vaccinations.
“The Metro Council has a great partnership with LMAS and these clinics have been an effective way to protect pets and people at a very low cost,” says Welch. "Many thanks to the Eagles #2173 Ladies Auxiliary for hosting at their club which provides shelter under the pavilion from rain or sun."
